There is always something new to learn.

I have to ask for more work because certain aspects become monotonous and unchallenging.

Keep trying your best and smile as you face off another day of fun yet tedious projects that challenge your skills. :)

I would love to ask for more hours because I work more than how many hours I get paid for due to the need and timeliness of projects.

HP Networking internship provides outstanding experience and career opportunities
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The challenges presented during the testing process, including working with engineers to track down root causes of software defects, have provided invaluable experience. Flexible hours and convenient location were definite advantages, as well.


Downers

Exclusion from certain employee benefits (paid time off, 401k).


Advice to Potential Interns

Realize that your role within the company is unlikely to be static; you may stay within the same group for the duration of your internship, or you may be reassigned based on your particular skill set or the needs of the company. Be flexible, and always be willing to learn something new.
