Video: ADP: A Virtual Internship Experience in Global Product & Technology
[TEXT] Meet ADP’s 2020 Global Product and Technology Summer Interns. When we first met our soon-to-be GPT Summer 2020 Interns, we never could have predicted how quickly the world would shift. We are so grateful to our 115 Summer Interns who came along on this virtual journey with us. So much so, that we’d like you to meet some of them.
[DESCRIPTION] Pictures appear one by one of young adults. Two of the young men and a young woman introduce themselves in videos. Text, Hello from our GPT Interns.
[PRANSHAV THAKKAR] Hey, everyone. My name is Pranshav Thakkar, and I’m a computer science Master’s major at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I have one semester left, so I’ll be graduating in December of 2020.
[MISCAN BUGATTI] Hi. My name’s Miscan Bugatti and I study at the University of Minnesota at Twin Cities, and I will be graduating next spring, so spring 2021. I’m majoring in computer science and have been loving it so far.
[WILLIAM ZUBACK] Hey, everyone. My name is William Zuback, and I’m an intern here at ADP.

[TEXT] When asked how to describe ADP in one word, here’s what we heard. Diverse, Supportive, Nurturing, Balance, Welcoming, Meaningful, Innovative. Here is some advice for future #ADPTech Interns.
[PRANSHAV THAKKAR] Hey, everyone. So my advice for future interns is don’t be afraid to ask questions or speak up or talk to anyone, because everyone here is really, really friendly and they want to see you succeed.
[SPEAKER] So one major advice I’d like to give future interns is to ask smart questions.
[WILLIAM ZUBACK] I think the best piece of advice that I could offer to a future intern of ADP is not be afraid to ask questions.
