Learning and experiencing new things from start to end in an almost perfect internship program.

Hampton, VA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

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.

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.

Advice to Potential Interns

Go for it. There's no reason to not apply.

Advice to Management

In my department, there are few females.

NASA Langley: Filled with the Opportunities of a Life-Time

4.8 of 5 stars

Hampton, VA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I had so many 'acting' mentors and therefore was exposed to so many different types of work. I have enjoyed seeing what types of occupations are available across such a large organization.

Downers

The fact that I had no concrete project ready for me when I first arrived. It made me feel like my presence wasn't necessary. After establishing connections, it is easy enough to find people who want help. Until that point however, it was rather disheartening.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared with heightened social skills. It is an essential in all that you do.

Advice to Management

It was an incredible place to work! Perhaps they could benefit in the long run, by setting up a better system of 'check and balance' to make sure people are doing the work required.

Would You Recommend

Yes

A fantastic experience to work with skilled individuals to develop my skills in my further education and career.

Downers

I can't say I disliked anything.

Advice to Potential Interns

NASA Langley is a fantastic organization to work for. I can't say enough about how amazing the employees are and the amount of hard work that they put into the organization.

Advice to Management

I wouldn't offer any other advice because it's already a wonderful place to work.

The project I worked on was the best aspect of the internship. It was difficult enough to require thinking, researching, and learning, yet it wasn't so difficult to be impossible to complete in 10 weeks.

Some of the seminars could have been more interesting.

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be shy, apply.
