Communication skills Internship at RTI International At RTI International, the success of my internship in Innovation and Commercialization depended on my ability to interact with a variety of professionals. I was able to thrive in these interactions by adapting my communications skills in order to effectively get my point across, whether it be with my fellow interns, my supervisor, or even the President of the Division.
