Real World Applications in an Intern Experience


Uppers

I worked closely with another intern and the constant in a team environment was great. Also, the project we worked on was a mobile application so it is both relevant with the state of technology today, and relevant to what I'm interested in.


Downers

I interned for a train company, but didn't ride a train or visit a yard.


Advice to Potential Interns

Technology at Union Pacific isn't static by any means. Even though the company is very historical, the technology is cutting edge and it's great to be a part of it.


Advice to Management

There are a lot of policies for what an employee can and can't do, so if the environment was a little more free, it would be a better place to get work done.

Wonderful


Uppers

Being a second year intern


Downers

My new golf swing.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared for the BAPT Test if doing application development


Advice to Management

Try a new approach besides the BAPT test. I know its suppose to show a persons strength in certain area's but if they have proven they can do the job and can deliver a product in a limited amount of time then I believe he or she deserves a chance.

My internship was a exciting, eventful, and a great learning experience.


Uppers

Free housing and transportation, free lunches, getting to know other interns, events in Omaha, ITWC events, working with the employees at Union Pacific


Downers

Not getting to know who my roomates were going to be until a few days before the internship


Advice to Potential Interns

Union Pacific is filled with opportunities and various job positions within their IT department. It is easy to switch from one job to the next, and the people are respectful and willing to help you meet your career goals.


Advice to Management

I would have liked to be given presentations briefing all the different projects in the IT department and project teams so that I am familiar with my options when I apply for a full-time job.

I Build at Union Pacific!


Uppers

Creating the internship video and being able to connect with all the interns from other schools. Sharing experiences with friends and full time employees. Most of all the team building social events we were apart of!


Downers

Limited time would be the thing I like least. I know there are several other projects surrounded around my projects that I wish I could've helped with.


Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard! Don't be afraid to speak up in the big time meetings and don't forget to have fun! Join a team (department) you are truly passionate about and work days will fly by! So will the internship experience!

Eye Opening

Learning what goes on in the work place. These are things that you cannot learn in school.


Downers

Being indoors most of the day.


Advice to Potential Interns

Talk to recruiters about possible postions that you could fit in with your area of study.


Advice to Management

Have a promotion/hire-on program to see if some interns can continue working with the company.
