IT Infrastructure Intern

June 2019 • Boise, ID

What I liked

I enjoy the hands-on experience working with the organization's IT infrastructure. The experience definitely exposed me to the daily tasks of an IT Infrastructure Engineer by giving me the opportunity to physically set up servers in the data center, configuring them, and deploying them to users.

What I wish was different

Honestly, I wish there was more projects and tasks to do to consume the amount of available time I had to work in the summer. I enjoyed working on many of the projects and tasks so much that I usually ran out of things to do.

Advice

Actively seek out work from other teams. It's not only a rewarding experience to help others, but it's also an amazing opportunity to learn and develop professional networks.

Business Analyst Intern

May 2019 • Boise, ID

What I liked

ITD has taught me a lot about working in the professional field. I really enjoy how my supervisor's have been very supportive of my ideas and want me to take as many opportunities as possible. I recently have started up a team of interns. Before ITD had no way for interns to meet and get to know one another and what they did in their department. I have worked very hard to create a team of interns in order to optimize our opportunities while being an intern at ITD. I have enjoyed helping many departments standardizing their processes throughout ITD. I was able to learn how to do this by creating a standardized guide for intern processes, and now it has been implemented and used as an example throughout the company.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had the opportunity to meet other interns around me at the very beginning. It was hard to feel comfortable at first because all of the people around me are much older. However, it made me get out of my comfort zone, and learn how to handle situations with people that are a lot different than me in the workplace.

Advice

I would definitely say to take risks and ask a lot of questions! In the beginning if I didn't understand something I would just try to figure it out myself, but now I realize that this just wastes time and it is okay to ask questions! Lots of them!

What I liked

It's been a great way to learn practical thinking and experience in my field.

What I wish was different

I wish I had done this sooner in my school career.

Advice

If you're on the fence about whether or not to take an internship, take it! It will never set you back. It will either help you progress towards your career or you'll learn in an easy way that you need to choose a different career.

Civil Engineering Intern

August - October 2018 • Shoshone, ID

What I liked

I was involved in meetings with consultants, making calculations for projects and official documents needed for the planning and construction of roadways and bridges.

What I wish was different

I wish it had been advertised better. I was in charge of doing a lot of paperwork and even more technical reading. When I heard about the job, I thought I would be making decisions that would actually effect the construction processes and materials used. This turned out not to be the case.

Advice

Be prepared to spend a lot of time sitting down and reading through reports and looking for relevant information. The pace you move at is not as important as getting things done right. In college we have due dates for projects and homework. At ITD (Idaho Transportation Department) the pace doesn't matter so much. Don't worry if something takes you a few days to get done or even a whole week. Just keep going.
