Ethical considerations in project role during internship as a student
Mary is an intelligent student and is doing her internship at a company. Her agreement does not allow her to get a complete access to the project artifacts. The project manager is aware of this. The project manager, who is short staffed wants her commitment to the project and is ready to give her complete access to the project’s resources/artifacts. He also finds her suitable and fit for the role. Mary is interested in the work but also knows her limitations. Over time she has also grown to be a key resource for the project.She approaches the project manager with her dilemma.

Do you face this dilemma in your projects? What is the right approach in such cases? Would like to hear from the group on your views.
