Freedom to Grow


Uppers

I feel like I was given a lot of freedom. The project I was given was my own. My internship had me developing software the first week. I have full coverage health insurance as an intern!


Downers

I have no complaints.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you are a self-starter and can work well on your own, HP would be a good fit for you. They treat interns as full time employees. We have the same resources and opportunities a full time employee would have. As an intern you are given a mentor to lean on, but you should be able to work well alone and be able to meet dates for deliverables.

HP interns are offered a lot of resources and opportunities, but you control your own experience by utilizing those or not.


Uppers

There were a variety of both fun, career developing, networking, and other resourceful events; taking advantage these, I maximized the internship experience that I was getting.


Downers

I was in control of my own experience; if I take advantage of every opportunity and resource that HP has offered, I would be maximizing my experience - if I don't, then I caused myself to lack experience.


Advice to Potential Interns

Employers like to see that you are passionate, hardworking, and willing to learn.

I didn't care that much for the Houston area.

Take your Learning out of the Classroom and Make a Difference!


Uppers

1. My team provides a great atmosphere to work in. 2. I am able to take on high level project or present infront of customers and it is great knowing how much my team trust me.


Downers

Sometimes it makes me want to not go to class because I feel like I am doing more at work then what the classroom can teach me.
