Diversity, Networking, Innovation, Collaboration, Freedom, Difficult yet fair, Thought Provoking. Those are just some of the words that looking back on the internship I would say are some of the best aspects. Working here I always felt that I had the opportunity to learn and continue to grow. Simply being able to see, experience, and learn is what I wanted in an internship and I got that.
There really wasn't anything that I did not like. Possibly the housing situation could be improved.
Advice to Potential Interns
Besides the pros listed above the connections that you are able to make is huge. Network, network, and network some more because it is an integral aspect of the hiring process and success down the road.
Advice to Management
The only suggestion that I would make, and they are already aware of this is some of the technical training could improve. This is hard though because technically there is so much that needs to be trained on at times. Thus its a game of management wants individuals to be trained faster and understand the training more, but the only true way of fully understanding the training is going out and doing those specific tasks, making mistakes, and learning from them.
Sample Interview Questions
Honestly I cant really remember the exact questions, but they revolved around problem solving, individual and group leadership, as well as personal aspirations. For my program they wanted to get to know the individual more than quizzing them on their technical background.
