Finance Intern

June - September 2019 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

Amazing place to work for. Fun culture, with a focus on personal growth and career development. Throughout my internship I had the opportunity for many different resources and although some aspects with challenging, with a great support network I never felt in over my head. I highly recommend anyone work for this company, and it's one of the best internships I could've asked for.

What I wish was different

Wish interns got a parking pass (like employees do), but ORCA card and small food subsidy was sufficient.

Advice

Network with as many people as possible. Everyone there is happy to meet with an intern to do an informational interview (1-on-1 as Dell calls it) and you can really learn a lot, not just within your role but the world beyond as well.

What I liked

Pay was great, full autonomy, create own schedule. Getting exposure to a large tech company. Bonuses

What I wish was different

Global Offer and Product Operations Intern

May - August 2019 • Austin, TX

What I liked

I really enjoyed the great work/life balance that Dell emphasizes in their daily working life. Everyone was super friendly and willing to help with whatever questions we had. I scheduled 1X1s with 100s of employees, many of these VPs and SVPs, and they were all eager to explain to me more about their role within the company and why they love working at Dell. We also spent the summer working on one project that was assigned to us by our manager. This was great because it gave me the ability to learn how to effectively manage my own project while also planning the direction that I wanted it to go in. The intern projects that were assigned were very important business problems that were occurring within the current business process, so I felt like I had meaning throughout the summer with the work I was doing.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been more TCU people in Austin! It is such a great place to work and has so many great opportunities. There are lots of top companies (ex. Google/Apple/Oracle) moving to Austin and I think we should get some more TCU students down there!

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions and meet with everyone you possibly can. Use this experience to learn about what you like in a company and in a job role. Dell has so many opportunities to explore other roles, so use that experience to begin to plan your career path and goals.

Support and Deployment Services Intern

May - September 2018 • Hopkinton, MA

What I liked

I loved being able to see what working in an office setting is all about. I also loved my boss and colleagues - they were so helpful and understanding.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had done more Industrial Engineering specific things, instead of a lot of analytics. I also wish I had been given my own project to fully complete this summer.

Advice

Definitely be outgoing and ask for things to do! They don't want to overwhelm you, but they'll always let you help!

Accounting Intern

May 2019 • Round Rock, TX

At Dell they give you real projects that they have to complete and put you in charge of them. You really get a feel of what it would actually be like to work there. From day one you are working exclusively with full time employees and not other interns.

What I wish was different

I wish you could have a little say of which team you get placed with.

Advice

Human Resouces Intern

May - August 2019 • Austin, TX

What I liked

I liked how big the intern program was at Dell. They held a lot of different intern events and made it fun for us as interns to get to know each other and feel a part of Dell.

What I wish was different

I wish they wouldn't have over recruited for HR interns because it made it more of a competitition for return offers than about learning and growing.

Advice

One piece of advice I would share about my experience is always be networking. I networked into my internship and I continued to network once I was there. Getting to hear everyones experiences was super beneficial.

Software Developer Intern

May - August 2019 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I got to work with Senior development on the full-stack development of a Microservice Application. They worked with the latest software and DevOps methodologies and tools. I learned so much about so many different languages and frameworks that I am no able to pick up and work with several programming languages and frameworks. They gave me key resources and expertise to speed up my learning process.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more time to choose a specific area of focus such as front-end development and really get to know my stuff to a point where I don't have to consistently look things up. I am happy that I got to do a bit of everything because I know what to looks for when I run into difficulties.

Advice

Hit the ground running. I was lucky enough to be put in a work environment where senior developers were willing to answer my beginner questions and give me the resources to continue on studying by myself. Use you time off work to get a better understanding of what you just did, putting in the extra work makes a huge difference. Don't hesitate to ask questions, the more you ask the quicker you learn and the faster you grow.

Inside Sales Intern

June - August 2019 • Round Rock, TX

What I liked

I loved the people and the environment! Dell has a very open and social office space which is really nice when you're an intern and are constantly looking for people to connect with. I also gained a lot of experience with Salesforce.

What I wish was different

They were very disorganized and I wish my internship had been a little more structured.

Advice

Just because your an intern doesn't mean companies will guide you through your whole experience! Sometimes you will need to do your own research to get the answers you want and take initiative to make your own connections within the company.
