Internship Spotlight Podcast: Snigdha Rao ’21, National Park Service

This episode is part of a special mini-series of “Career Conversations” focused on MBA summer internships. We asked rising second-year MBA students to check in from their summer internships, where they are applying the lessons of their first year at Yale SOM.

Snigdha Rao ’21 is an intern at the National Park Service this summer. She discusses what it’s like to work at the organization in their internal consulting group, her (many) hidden talents, and what she looks forward to in her second year as a full-time MBA student, including her involvement in Student Government and Women in Management.
