“During the time at my internship with Carls Jr, I have learned much more as far as dealing with real life situations that occur with HVACR equipment at many of their buildings ... I feel these objectives were valuable to me because it has helped me to sharpen my skills on commercial equipment and become a better technician. I have accomplished a lot during my time interning with their company and I am still learning more every day I am out in the field running into new problems. This [experience] has been very beneficial since day one; it has given me the opportunity to get hands on practice in real life situations that you do not pick up in class.” - Ulysses, Energize College Intern
