Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Plantation, FL

What I liked

From my very first day, I worked on challenging products that the company actually used. At no point did I ever work on any sort of busy work just designed for interns. Everyone was extremely helpful and more than willing to answer my techincal questions whenever I got stuck. In addition, the mentorship program at Motorola Solutions was great, my mentor was extremely easy to talk to as well as being an absolute wealth of information.

What I wish was different

The office building itself is extremely dated, but this is really a minor complaint.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions, the full time employees are extremely approachable and open to answering your techincal questions!

Inside Sales Intern

June - August 2018 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

Their Company Culture - very open to sharing all information with all employees, departments worked together, cross functional Gave interns really meaningful work

What I wish was different

I was on the phone A LOT, which was a little boring

Advice

Work hard everyday so that you stand out amongst all the other interns, that's the best way to get a return offer. Ex: they give you 4 days off, but don't take them unless you have to. Its only 10 weeks so try your hardest to show up every day.

Mechanincal Engineering Intern

May - July 2018 • Plantation, FL

What I liked

My internship this summer was a great experience! I liked working on projects that were actually important for the company (and not just "busy work"). Being in a corporate environment for the first time was eye-opening and a very beneficial experience. Additionally, I loved being in South Florida- my favorite place to live.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have had more responsibilities, but I am thankful that as the internship progressed and I became more comfortable I was able to become more involved in different projects and tasks.

Advice

Don't undervalue yourself and don't pass up amazing opportunities! I did not think I would have been qualified for an internship this summer, but the opportunity came up and I got it. Even after getting the job, I wondered if it would be better to take classes and get a summer job instead. I am so grateful that I ended up interning for the summer, and I learned so much.

Product Manager Intern

May - August 2018 • Schaumburg, IL

What I liked

All the employees were eager to share their time to teach me or share their wisdom. From the coworkers near my cubilce to the VP's on the highest floor, every person offered or said "yes" to answering my questions.

What I wish was different

I would have liked some clear learning objectives at the start of my internship so I can keep track of what skills I'm learning and why I'm performing certain tasks.

Advice

Reach out to other departments to schedule a meeting or job-shadow during your free time!

Software Engineer

June - August 2018 • Schaumburg, IL

What I liked

The environment was great and my team was always available for questions.

What I wish was different

I wish the World Cup had not happened during June and July as I sat at my office desk.

Advice

Come up with checklists. Outline your work for the day (as much as three bullet points). If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask. If you feel as though a question is necessary to ask but don't quite have it properly formulated, self-educate and read more about the problem at hand.
