Uppers

Working with novel technology around other passionate people who enjoyed their work.

Downers

Idaho Falls is a very quiet town, not exactly ideal when you've just graduated college.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you can stand working in Idaho Falls and can stand the insufferable bureaucracy that accompanies all national labs, INL is a great place to work. There is novel technology and lots of opportunities to meet people in your field, while working a convenient 9-80 work schedule that allows time to enjoy the great Idaho outdoors.

Being able to get one years worth of real work experience in my field and all of the information I learned was so applicable to my degree. It was great to see how useful someone with my schooling can be and to experience the type of job I can get after graduate school. The pay was really nice too.

Downers

The application process was really slow, so I had to make plans really quickly to find housing and some other logistics stuff was tricky.

Advice to Potential Interns

This was an amazing place to work. The people were all really good about answering any and all questions I had and were always welcoming me. I always felt like I was a part of the group there. Also, it is a very active environment in the research field and it was very good to see all of the new developments happening right then and there.

Advice to Management

Training could be a little long somedays. Application process could be a little bit more transparent at times, or even just a little faster.

INL Internship gives undergraduate students prospects of future job

4.8 of 5 stars

Idaho Falls, ID | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Real experience in a national lab setting. Gives me an end goal for a job following graduate school. Was a well paid position for a undergraduate student and was valuable lab experience.

Downers

None, was an amazing experience.

Advice to Potential Interns

Get to know your mentor and others in the lab that are willing to help you if you are unsure of what you are doing.

Advice to Management

None, I had a great experience and group to work with.

Sample Interview Questions

I had no formal interview. I think the question on the application was just a basic, "Why do you want to complete our internship?"

Would You Recommend

Yes

Learn the ins and outs of Cybersecurity through hands on experience of modern equipment and software, both defensively and offensively!

The people were incredible! Smiling faces all around made for an extremely positive experience.
I learned so much more than I already knew about a wide variety of technical skills that will be hugely helpful in a career environment.

Downers

It was short. I wish I could have had more time!

Advice to Potential Interns

I'd like to say that this Internship isn't clearly advertised as the prestigious opportunity that it is. Make people know that you can build a life out of this! I worked alongside an intern that took this internship for granted. I would PAY to do this internship again.

Advice to Management

None! Keep the smiles flying high! :D

Sample Interview Questions

What do you think will be your favorite part of the internship by the time termination comes around?
