Networking Opportunities, Self-Guided Training & Available Resources, Comfortable Work-Environment & Friendly People
Assigned work did not relate enough to my technical skills. Wanted more coding projects and less documentation work.
Advice to Potential Interns
Do a lot of research on the employer and the organization's reputation. Ask for a sample calendar/schedule of what type of work or technologies you will be working with during the course of your internship. Evaluate your location from home carefully. Commuting over two hours a day to work and back home is extremely exhausting. Just find an apartment close-by.
Sample Interview Questions
Give me an example of a time you had to work with someone you didn't like. What did you do to overcome the conflict?
What was the greatest challenge/most complicated problem you've had to overcome? How did you overcome it?
Advice to Management
More time dedicated to training opportunities and learning new technical skills, beyond every day work.
