Working with our intern from Start Me Up was a joy. A truly great experience that we hope was mutual. The initial introduction and logistics of starting the work were made easy. Highly recommended.

Our first intern, Monica joined us initially for 2 months, but her last day is today, almost 4 months later. She has become an invaluable, wonderful part of our team and will be very much missed. We recently brought on 3 more interns and the enthusiasm and energy they bring is amazing.
