Over the next couple of months, Veritas is welcoming interns to its summer session. At Veritas, interns have the opportunity to immerse themselves in their assigned business group; from participating in daily meetings to engaging the decision-making process on ongoing projects, interns from the Veritas University Program become a rich part of our company from day one.
As a part of Veritas University, each office selects a lead intern. This year we had the pleasure of sitting down with our Santa Clara HQ lead intern, Christopher Daniels. In his #VtasNextGen interview, he shares his passion for managing intellectual property, and how this ultimately led him to pursue an internship with #TeamVtas.

Richelle: What college do you attend?
Christopher: I currently attend Florida State University and am set to graduate in Fall 2019.
Richelle: What's your major?
Christopher: I’m majoring in political science and business. I do enjoy the legal field and have some background in that area.
Richelle: Why Veritas?
Christopher: I actually wanted to be an intellectual property lawyer and I know that Veritas handles a lot of intellectual property in general. Over time, I transitioned from wanting to work in the legal industry to working more so in the IT industry. Veritas was the perfect fit for me.
Richelle: What will you be focusing on this summer?
Christopher: I’ll be primarily working in data management regarding compensation, benefits, and termination. I’m looking forward to a great summer! It’s going to be a lot of Excel spreadsheets—that just sounds great!
Richelle: What are your goals for this summer?
Christopher: I’m hoping to gain even higher proficiency in Excel and potentially a full-time offer – I would love to be a part of #TeamVtas! This is a great area, a great company to work for and I just love it here.
