Early Career Program Testimonials
HR Rotational Program
“After learning about the HR rotational program, I was extremely excited to use this opportunity to further my understanding of the different HR functions. Being a part of this program has allowed me to develop additional skills and encounter new challenges. I have been encouraged to grow and learn in different capacities. The rotational program has aided in my career development and pushed me to reach my long-term career goals.”
“My IE team has always encouraged me to explore new ideas, and listen to my suggestions. I’ve constantly been blown away by the respect that everyone pays the interns, but my team has been exceptional about valuing me and my work and I can’t thank them enough for that.”
“Wolfspeed separates from other companies not only by their products but by the responsibilities they provide to their employees. It is interesting how Wolfspeed allows engineers to have so much control and flexibility of their work and how much it can impact the company. Even as an intern, I felt that I could make a large impact on the company.”
