I'd love to have a bit more exposure to different teams in Ellucian

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish I knew the tech tool my team was using beforehand. Familiarize yourself with those to have a smooth start. Otherwise - learn 4-5 different new tools in 3-4 days...

Most Valuable Learning Experience with the Best Talented Group of People

5.0 of 5 stars

Reston, VA | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were meeting with executives, attending intern workshops that worked on developing our skills as professionals, and working on projects that really will be used in the future at Ellucian.

Downers

The first two weeks of the internship were hard because we had to learn all the tools and put together large chunks of information that we received, some information we didn't understand but had to take in account when starting our projects, so I guess onboarding was hard to adjust to but put together nicely enough for us to start working on something.

Advice to Potential Interns

The organization has many teams and various positions that any type of person could fit into, it doesn't only have to be Computer Science, you could also have a degree in another field as long as you had the experience, talent, skills, and strong work ethic to learn new concepts.

Advice to Management

The organization is already the best place to work for me because the people here are very nice, friendly, positive, and supporting.

React.js for Dummies

5.0 of 5 stars

Rochester, NY | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Learning React.js from scratch with no prior experience, and creating a SPA to exhibit this summer's work. Also, defining a workflow/process for others to follow when developing in React.js to mimic how your work was implemented.

Downers

Our mentors were in Bangalore which made communication and collaboration more difficult.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be assertive. You will get out as much as you put into this internship. Focus on your work but make sure to create and manage relationships in the workplace.

Reston, VA | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were to meet company executives, work on projects that have a real purpose, learning new software technologies and computer languages I never got experienced working with before, and attending intern workshops and events to grow my network and have fun while working.

Downers

The least thing I liked about the internship was we were stuck in one team with one project. I would have liked the internship program to include times where the interns got to work cross functionally and see what other teams and products ellucian has to offer (not the whole process but just a small glimpse to get a better understanding of how their work contributes to the whole outlook of things at ellucian).

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish I would have known more about all the different products ellucian has instead of only the one I am currently working on to better grasp the whole picture and how the different environments work together and how they affect each other.

Advice to Management

Ellucian is already a great place to work at! However, I would recommend that the training we received on the first day of work (orientation) should be turned into handouts or modules on acheive that we should be required to do before we start the first day (maybe release them a week prior over email to upcoming interns) so we can be better prepared on the first day on the job and know exactly what to expect to avoid any surprises.

Sample Interview Questions

What kinds of environments and languages are you used to working in?

Are you capable of learning new information and software tools quickly and effectively?

Have you ever had experience working in an agile team environment?

Do you know any Ellucian products that are being used in universities that you know of?
