Floater

June - August 2018 • Tigard, OR

What I liked

The atmosphere was authentic and genuine. Everyone was for the most part trying to to a good job and deliver quality service and product to customers in a way that was helpful and friendly. I enjoyed getting to know my co-workers and working different shifts allowed me to gain experience in different departments as well as expand my knowledge of working with different customers/co-workers.

What I wish was different

I wish I had started sooner. While it was pretty busy work, it was stable and regular, giving me some much needed structure for my summer. I got to know some of the people I worked with, but if I had been given a longer contract I could have gotten to know them better.

Advice

Always put 100% into your work and interactions with people and they'll appreciate the effort (even if they're having a bad day). Some people won't think much about it, or will expect more from you, but doing your best will be your best witness when peer reviews and supervisor meeting come around. Not to mention being friends with people (like your supervisor/boss) is much easier than being enemies.

Software Development Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

I lived in the University of Washington which had a beautiful campus and plenty of activities available. Seattle was an amazing city and had plenty of attractions and restaurants for me to explore alongside great bicycle infrastructure. I worked with a great team full of supportive people and learned a lot.

What I wish was different

I didn't get to deploy my product as I ran out of time before the internship ended. I wish I could have gone through the whole deployment procedure so I could learn about software development from start to "finish".

Advice

Network a lot! There were a ton of intelligent people for me to meet.
