Ask a Badger

Listen to alumnus and former Google employee, Joshua Steinberg, talk about what a normal day at his job was like!

The freedom to learn provided by American Family was the best thing about my internships. I was given room to breathe and do my work. Nobody is micro-managing you, but the support is there if you need it. The company is really focused on you developing as a professional.
