I got to work in something unexpected, and get paid to do it! Plus it's NASA and that's killer on your resume.

I really didn't like how disorganized it felt sometimes. There are many things that we are required to attend but there's little notice sometimes.

In my department, there are few females.

I loved the lectures and all the events the program held as a group. I really loved the work schedule; there were no specific time you HAD to be into work, as long as you got your work done and completed four hundred hours by the end. I was able to work extra some days and less others. I loved seeing real engineers at work and attending bi weekly project meetings.

Downers

I wish there were more program events: tours in particular.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be open minded, approach new faces, and take risks.

Advice to Management

There really isn't anything I can complain about. I had a great experience.

Would You Recommend

Hampton, VA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Challenging/rewarding work. Friendly atmosphere. Constructive criticism from mentor. Mentor and other professionals had deep enthusiasm to help me understand concepts.

Downers

I wish it was longer. Also, I know some of my friends were not challenged by their assignment and completed early and were given only little assignments for the duration of the summer. This would have been unfavorable for me, had I been in their situation.

Advice to Potential Interns

Consider the countless projects and networking opportunities to which you could be exposed at a NASA center.

Advice to Management

I would suggest the possibility of providing a one day mentor training for new mentors. This will give them some footing in what to expect and how to best manage their intern before the intern arrives. In this way, the mentor can best utilize the skills of the mentee and the mentee feels more connected to his or her mentor.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Research always requires analysis and analysis requires much more analysis.
