Tell us about your internship, co-op, or research opportunity, including your day-to-day responsibilities.
This past summer, my internship was virtual, and I had the opportunity to work with two different teams in my department. My day-to-day activities included joining different types of meetings and events throughout day as well as working on my coding assignments. Every morning I would join the agile stand-up meeting, where everyone on the team would share updates regarding their current assignments. This was a great time for me to get an understanding about the business side of the team. In the afternoon, there were ‘office hours’ where all the software engineers on the team would help each other as needed. That was a great time for me to ask questions, but I also talked with my tech supervisor throughout the day to get feedback and guidance.
Describe the process of obtaining your position. When did you hear of the position and submit your application?
I started researching internship programs last fall semester. I applied to T. Rowe’s Global Technology Internship in early December and heard back around January. First, I had a phone interview with a recruiter. After that, I had a video interview with my current manager and team leaders.
What have you enjoyed the most about your position or organization?
My favorite part about my position was meeting so many great people. I had the opportunity to network with many people from different teams and ask them about their experiences. Everyone was so willing to help and provide perspective.
What advice would you give to another student who is seeking an internship or similar experience?
Start preparing early! Most applications are due before you realize it. Get your resume reviewed as soon as possible and always keep it updated. Start looking for applications early in the fall semester and in the meantime prepare for interviews. Scheduling a mock interview is a good way to figure out what you need to improve on. By the time recruiters reach out to you, you’ll be ready for the interview.
