Network during your internship, talk with your manager and leadership team about your goals and opportunity for advancement, if you get an offer you'll be farther ahead than your peers when you begin full time


Advice to Management

Have more happy hours, possibly provide an area where other interns are living, work with apartment companies to get them to offer short term leases to your interns

Ten weeks of Brand new Experiences each week

Uppers

Learn and Used many different technologies. Met a lot people and had many great experiences


Downers

Traffic coming home. The end of work came extremely quickly


Advice to Potential Interns

Booz Allen Hamilton was a place where I was introduced to a wide range of different skills and technologies. My resume nearly doubled in my skills section because of the project that I had during the summer. Booz Allen Hamilton is a great place to for a young professional to be exposed to many different types of work all within one summer.


Advice to Management

Only advice I would give is to improve the response time of HR. It took a long time before the beginning of summer before the internship began.

One of the best places to launch your career in Federal IT Consulting
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

One of the best aspects of my internship was the people. Almost everyone I met during my internship was great. My management and home team were always their for me and helped me out in any situation. The other interns were also great and we all really came together as a group. We would frequently grab lunch together, hang out on the weekends, and help eachother in the office. Another aspect I enjoyed during my internship was the amount of time and money that was invested in me. During my time I earned three professional certifications. Security +, Certified Ethical Hacker, and Certified Security Analyst. Each and every certification was paid for Booz Allen. This included week long bootcamps including all the neccessary course materials, breakfast and lunch every day and test vouchers. I really felt like Booz Allen was setting me up for a successful career.


Downers

Overall I was extremely pleased with my internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

Best advice is just come ready to meet new people and learn alot. In the consulting business its crucial to expand your network and meet new people. Also if you are interesting in Federal Consulting this is the place to come.


Advice to Management

Nothing to specific - maybe offer more opportunities for attending business or graduate school


Would You Recommend

Yes

Great networking opportunities
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The intern culture that we created was great, we all bonded very well. So not only did we get the most out of our work experience we explored the area that we were in and had a full social life as well to maintain a good balance. The full-timers were also really great at engaging us and trying to understand in what ways we wanted to network and further our career.


Downers

Some interns did not have full-time members that actively reached out to them or were able to give them additional tasking.


Advice to Potential Interns

Note that Booz Allen does a lot of government work so keep in mind that you have to be eligible for security clearances depending on what you would like to do. Also take a look at the Core Values since that is very important to the company.

A ten week evaluation of my work abilities in a true working environment
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to work on software with a real world impact, and the experience of working with full-time employees to understand the culture and skills required.


Downers

Minimal flexibility in project choice


Advice to Potential Interns

Treat the internship period as a 10-week paid job interview. You're not in the door yet, this is your chance to make the necessary impact to open up a world of opportunities.


Advice to Management

Offer close support, as needed, to your interns as they are young, inexperienced, and likely nervous about their ability to perform. With proper guidance many interns will have the opportunity to excel at their greatest potential.


Would You Recommend

Yes
