My Summer at Voyager
Over the past two months, I have served as an intern for Voyager. My time as an intern has looked a lot different from my previous internships, but it certainly has been memorable.
COVID-19 has presented new challenges to all of us especially when it comes to working. Many have experienced working remotely at some point during the past six months. Working from home has brought about challenges for many of us, especially myself. The team at Voyager was extremely gracious and understanding during the whole process of remote work. With most of the Voyager team already working remotely around the world, it was an easy transition. This ability to adapt quickly allowed Voyager to overcome these challenges and stay successful.
This internship at Voyager fared well for me. Through analyzing ASBATANKVOY charter parties and contracts of affreightment (COAs), building out demurrage claim requirements, and helping with the planning and design of Voyager demurrage workflows, I have been able to make use of and expand on my knowledge of the maritime domain. I want to thank Matthew Costello and Bret Smart for welcoming me into the company with open arms and allowing me to learn so much from them and my time at Voyager. It has been a pleasure working with the whole Voyager team and getting to see the company grow in the little time I was able to work here.
