Alumni Testimonials

“The testing I performed should reduce the amount of bugs/problems the Mentor tool will have when it is officially released; therefore, ensuring Mentor's reputation of producing quality products. Also, by receiving experience as an intern, I have the opportunity to return to school and focus more upon courses that will provide the education for me to become a much more valuable asset Mentor.”

Internship Alumni

“It was a great experience. Employees were very helpful and I was treated as a fellow employee, not just an intern. I had the opportunity to learn, as well as contribute to the group.”

Internship Alumni

“Mentor has an outstanding working environment, providing all of the resources needed to perform our jobs. I especially favor the organization of the company, with department groups divided according to their product. These smaller groups have permitted a better understanding and communication regarding product development and modifications. Mentor has provided me with a great experience and training, and I hope I can return the favor to Mentor as permanent employee.”

Internship Alumni

“I was given a great opportunity to learn about something I knew extremely little about, while at the same time I felt I was contributing to Mentor. One of my personal goals is to be as well rounded as possible, and this internship helped fill a large void in my engineering knowledge and experience - particularly in the digital domain.”
