What I liked

Everyone was very helpful and nice. They were always happy to answer any questions that I had. And, they were eager to teach the different processes that they do.

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have seen some of the business side of the work.

Advice

Do not be afraid to ask questions and to ask for help. They want to help you learn and grow.

Oracle Hyperion Intern

May - August 2019 • Houston, TX

What I liked

I liked how much McDermott invested in their interns. I felt that they really wanted us at McDermott and that I wasn’t there to do busy work as I worked on a huge project that gave me great work experience.

What I wish was different

I wish I could’ve gotten more trainings and certifications done before the 12 weeks ended that were offered to be paid for by McDermott.

Advice

Be who you are. I got a return offer not because I am really smart. I got an offer because I worked really hard and did things without being asked to as well as I was myself. I laughed in meetings and made some fun jokes to try and make things fun. This lead to the director of corporate IT wanting me back and a part of his team as I got things done while boosting team morale.
