Pension Administration Intern

June - August 2019 • Roanoke, TX

What I liked

I loved the group that I worked with! It felt as if I was just an average employee helping out with many clients. Being able to do a multitude of work with a flexible schedule made work great! Plus, there were a couple events that we got to bond as a group which were great. In addition to that, working at Fidelity allowed me to learn about all the other kinds of work I could potentially do there (if I were to stay on).

What I wish was different

I had wished there might be another intern to share in the experience with me, but I built relationships with my coworkers easily!

Advice

It’s a great starting to place for an internship, with a great team, a great company, and a great facility!

Game Development Intern

July 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

The Internship was Off-site, meaning that I was able to work from my home in New Jersey over the summer and In my dorm in Worcester now. I was also working on a team with my friends so it was easy to communicate and talk with them about ideas. We were designing a game for them and the way they let us work was very freeform and loose. This gave us a lot of space to come up with interesting ideas for the game.

What I wish was different

The experience overall has been very good and I would not change much about it.

Advice

Working with a small team on game development has the chance to let you experience every part of the process of making a game. Use that experience when working with larger and smaller teams to understand what is possible from different departments( as well as your own) in a certain amount of time. This will help with grasping the concept of scope and time management while developing the game as well as with your work.

Audit Analyst Intern

June - August 2019 • Roanoke, TX

What I liked

I loved how as an intern I was treated as a full time employee, taking on tasks that made it possible for me to learn as much as possible. I was selected to participate in a Risk Management Training during the first few days of my internship which gave me a good foundation to build on throughout the internship.

What I wish was different

Some days there was more direction than others, and I wish on the days I did not have as much work they would have given me something to work on.

Advice

It was really great to intern for such a big company and no matter what department you are in, Fidelity does an amazing job making sure you know about other parts of the company as well. They really believe in individuals personal development in all areas, and I was lucky to be a part of that.

Human Resources Intern

May - August 2019 • Roanoke, TX

What I liked

The company culture and the beauty of the campus is second to none. There is a stereotype that interns are treated badly and are expected to make coffee runs and run other errands - this was not that internship. I was given meaningful work and had endless opportunities to network and seek advice from senior leaders. I always had work to do and learned so much.

What I wish was different

I would not change anything about my internship. I learned so much and got along well with my team. I was offered a full time position at the end of my internship.

Advice

A good attitude and taking initiative is very important! It's okay not to know everything, but asking questions and a willingness to learn and do work goes a long way.
