I could do this forever.
Boise, ID | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was able to meet some great people through networking events and office chatting. I learned a lot about what it is like to work for an industry as opposed to acedemia. These past three months further strengthened my career choice. I truly do not feel like I worked even though I accomplished quite a bit. I also learned that working slowly but consistently is much more effective.


Downers

I had difficulty getting housing as many of the options given to me were unavailable for only 3 months. I ended up coming to the internship without housing for the first few days. I also had to get 3 offer letters because the first 2 were blank.


Advice to Potential Interns

You will not regret a decision to join HP for your job. There is an element of freedom here and you are basically expected to do work. Coming a little late and working at different times is ok here. As an intern, I feel as though I learned many life skills in the past 3 months.


Sample Interview Questions

What would you do if you had data that needed to be secure and readily accessible?



Describe the basic elements of programming: Pointers, Data Types, recursion, etc.



Describe the basic ideals of programming: Coupling, Multithreading, synchronous vs asynchronous, etc



What have you done in computer science? Projects? Assignments? Classes?


Advice to Management

Since there was basically nothing that I disliked about my internship it is difficult to find things to improve. I do wish that it was made clear to me that there is a technical career path. I initially believed that to move up, you must go to management. As someone who likes doing technical things, this news was mindblowing.

A Company That Treats You Like Family and the Opportunity to do Great Things
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I love that I can walk up to anyone, literally anyone, and they'll be very willing to help me to whatever I need. I am allowed to create my own rules and not hold anything back. I am able to participate at a global level. I am trusted by my peers and my managers to do an exceptional job.


Downers

It is pretty disorganized. There aren't any clear goals, which is a pro and a con because you can make it your own but at the same time it is hard to really understand expectations.


Advice to Potential Interns

It really is what you make of it, it can be the best thing ever or a really rough ride. make it what you will, but do everything well.

My management experiences thus far have been ideal.
