Software Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • San Mateo, CA

What I liked

I mean this honestly, I believe this was a perfect internship. Fanatics is a small, but growing company. For the Summer 2019 term, Fanatics only brought in less than 100 interns across the country and only ten of them were in our office in San Mateo, CA. As an intern you were placed on a team with other full-time employees and functioned in the team as if you were an employee yourself. I would say an outsider looking in wouldn't be able to tell that I was an intern. Multiple times a week you would attend meetings to talk to the exec board or team leads. We even had a chance to talk with the CEO! The people in San Mateo and across the country were amazing and extremely supportive. I learned so much at my internship here and highly recommend it to anyone looking to get into a 21st century tech company.

What I wish was different

I can't think of anything to write here off the top of my head, it was that positive of an experience.

Advice

The first weeks are the hardest, I had to learn an entire programming language in about two weeks and it was nerve wracking. Don't expect to be at your full potential until a couple weeks into the experience.

Merchandising Intern

May - August 2019 • Jacksonville, FL

What I liked

Everyone at Fanatics was extremely hands-on and wanted to help the interns succeed. I developed great relationships with buyers and upper level management in the Merchandising Department. It gave me great experience that will benefit me in my future career. The company culture was incredible as well. It made going into work every day extremely enjoyable.

What I wish was different

I am not from the Jacksonville area, so I wish that there was either a housing stipend or easier access to housing.

Advice

Embrace every opportunity! You are given a lot in this internship so make sure to take advantage of them and develop relationships with your coworkers.
