Networking within a company is so important. I was able to reach out to people who were not in my division and people who were not even based in Dallas. Networking made my experience worth it.

Product Marketing Intern

January 2019 • Plano, TX

What I liked

From the beginning, I was treated as a full member of the team and given so much responsibility with my own projects. If you have the dedication and work ethic, you can achieve practically anything you want to. I've been able to learn so much about data science, AI, machine learning, augmented reality, and more, which is not what I expected from a marketing internship! The people are great, the work is really interesting, and it's been an overall fantastic experience.

Strategic Alliances Intern

June - August 2018 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

My co-worker's were incredibly helpful and welcoming. They so kindly threw me a birthday party and a going away party. I felt valued and an important member of the team!

This experience was transformational and grew my capabilities as a team member, a leader, and a innovator.

What I wish was different

Maybe not having to take the bus everyday, but I wouldn't change much about the actual internship experience

Advice

Ask lots of questions, all the time. You can gain so much experience and so many opportunities simply in being bold enough to ask questions.

Public Sector

June - August 2019 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

I loved the number of connections I built amongst my fellow interns and full-time employees. The skills that I learned and improved on since my last summer internship came in handy with my summer project, and being able to collaborate and talk with fellow interns that I had met over the summer and from previous summers made me feel like I was not alone.

What I wish was different

I wish that I was able to be closer to my supervisor then in a remote location away from them and her team. In the end, it gave me a great learning experience on how to communicate through emails, video chats, and etc. effectively without losing anything in cyber translation.

Advice

Do not be afraid to ask for help. Asking questions is the most effective way to make sure things are done properly and timely. If you have to ask multiple times how to do things, that's okay. in the end it will be for everyone's benefit. Even asking for outside help and opinions is okay because having a fresh set of eyes can make the difference between looking over a small mistake or finding a better solution to a problem.

Summer Intern

June - July 2020 • Jericho, NY

What I liked

I loved how At&t covered different aspects of the company, technical skills in the information/computer industry, and other skills that can be applied to any industry, job, and even daily life.

What I wish was different

I kinda wish some of the online lectures and lessons were formatted to be more consistent as sometimes different lessons had different mechanisms to grade/teach that made it a bit jarring moving from lesson to lesson. Also just put all the lecture videos on Youtube; as I found that the video player most lessons used was clunky; as most of the videos did not allow or the viewer to back up or move about the video easily without restarting the whole video.

Advice

Make sure to keep up with the lessons, secessions, ad lectures as you don't want all the material to pile up on you.
