Interning at Voyage Control


written by Kevin Hogan

There’s a lot of fear that comes with starting a new job, particularly an internship. You don’t want to seem inept, nor do you want to walk out on the last day without any relevant experience under your belt. As an American college student working abroad in London this fear was magnified for me. I came to Voyage Control with no exposure to software or logistics management, but as my time here draws to a close I am prepared to leave with a greater understanding of the industry, as well as skills and experiences that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. For the past two months I have worked with the Business Development team in a variety of roles. Some of my tasks have been redesigning the front end and back end of the customer support platform, improving the company’s social media presence, and assisting the sales team with their new client implementation plan. On the first day I told my supervisor what I wanted to get out of this internship, and since then the entire Voyage Control team has helped me reach my goals by asking for my help and giving me both day-to-day and long term projects each week. Helping a company provide an environmentally sound solution to one of the world’s most pressing problems has been an extremely rewarding experience. Voyage Control gave me their best so that I could give them the same in return.

From my time here I have learned 5 key steps to achieve success as an intern and to have positive internship experience as a whole.


  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions, especially in the early weeks.
  • Set realistic, yet challenging goals and expectations for yourself.
  • Find a mentor that takes a personal interest in your career development and success, and is willing to help you reach your goals.
  • Get as much exposure as possible. Rotate among departments, tackle new tasks, and take any chance to network with different employees.
  • Leave with tangible accomplishments that you can reference in the future.
