Workplace Etiquette and Time Management

As stated in Twain’s Values, it is important to us that an intern fits the mold of a business professional by being respectful, transparent, and innovative. Interns will be working on multiple projects throughout their internship and it is important to manage expectations and workload appropriately. Twain will mentor every intern on how to be successful with time management and in a professional office setting.

Business Applications

We believe that part of being innovative and driving to solutions means leveraging our technology. Twain leverages multiple business applications to support daily job functions. As an intern, you will learn to use different applications and how these applications impact roles and the company.


Every intern will get the opportunity to shadow Twain professionals in different departments to observe daily routines, customer and colleague interactions, and Twain’s company culture. Shadowing is an important component to an internship because it allows students to become well-rounded and informed on different business functions.

Resume Review

During a resume review, Twain will assist each intern in formulating resume statements for the work completed during their internship. In addition, Twain will provide guidance on resume improvements and formatting. The resume review is optional and participation is not required.
