• Itai S. – Remote Program, Summer 2020

    “My name is Itai and I’m participating in Onwards Remote, interning for an Israeli high tech start-up company called Hyfit. I chose to enroll in Onward Remote, because despite the adjustment of the program to an online platform, I still preferred to have the opportunity to gain professional experience. Working for an Israeli company includes a variety of cultural differences that we can and should work to adapt to. It’s a very meaningful experience working with people from a different country, especially one that is so close to my heart. I’ve loved this entire experience. I’ve gained skills and I’ve enjoyed meeting the people I work with, both bosses and colleagues. The adjustment to an online platform for a professional environment is difficult, but we’ve been able to make it work. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything in the world, and I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to participate in it.”
