Spotlight on Our Internship Program: A Q&A with Aditi Padhye

One of the central themes of  WEFTEC 2019 last month was building a diverse water workforce for the 21st century. This starts with engaging and helping new members of the workforce thrive. 
The internship program is a core part of KETOS’ workforce. It is something that CEO Meena Sankaran is very involved with and committed to the success of. There’s a reason why 20% of our intern program participants have been hired full-time and they make up 9% of our current full-time workforce. 
We sat down with one of KETOS’ first interns, Aditi Padhye (who is now a full-time R&D Engineer), to discuss how her internship at KETOS set her up for a career with the company, how the company’s mission empowers her in her role and how access to, and engagement with, company executives helps each employee understand the impact they are making, leading to high job satisfaction.
