Strategic Events Intern

June - August 2018 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

Being at such a large corporate environment opened a lot of doors for me, from meeting hundreds of other interns to the endless flow of events, networking, and volunteering opportunities.

What I wish was different

Advice

I would say for summer internships, don’t be afraid to apply to positions that don’t “match” your specific major or studies. As long as you are interested and committed to be a great intern, all of your social and technical skills are much more needed than you may think.

Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

I loved the work and company culture. Living in San Francisco was awesome and there were awesome company perks!

What I wish was different

Nothing, my experience was great!

Advice

Accept all the experience you get at a job as positive and things you can learn from. I had to change teams halfway through the summer because of a strategic shift at the company. It could have been very negative as I had to scrap my project and start over new again, but I treated it as something I could learn from. I learned how to transition to a new team quickly and realized that sometimes things don't go according to plan and being able to be flexible and adapt is a valuable skill.
