JENSEN HUGHES

May - August 2019 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

The company culture and the work I was doing.

What I wish was different

I wish it would have been at a different location, however, being loacted in their headquaters was very beneficial for my career.

Advice

Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. I worked on projects that I had no idea what was going on, but I learned so much from them. The hardest projects/assigments are the most benefitial for you as an intern.

Security Consulting

What I liked

The team really helped to provide me with tasks and work that was very involved with current projects. I got to get very hands on with device placements on floor plans, met with clients, and did some project site visits.

What I wish was different

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions! I know you get told that a lot, but it is something that not only helps you to learn as much as possible, but also lets your employer see that you want to learn and that you are't afraid to speak up.
