Computer Research Scientist Intern

May 2019 • Arlington County, VA

What I liked

The atmosphere is fun, they have a great team of engineers who welcome you with open arms and treat you as an equal. The work is intense and exciting, you contribute to important projects and can see the impact you have. Every person there is happy to answer your questions; I am continuously picking their brains. They challenge you to step outside your comfort zone so that you can grow, but you never feel like you've been thrown in the deep end. There is minimal "bloat" to the internship program; you begin on your project within a day or two of starting. This was an incredible experience.

What I wish was different

The hiring process could have been a little smoother. A lot of the communication was handled by HR interns, and sometimes the ball got dropped mid-communication, requiring me to reach out to others.

Advice

Take notes on any constructive feedback you get, whether it be at a career fair or during/after an interview. I was informed of knowledge areas I lacked, and knew what to focus on going forward to set myself apart. Take their advice to heart and put in the effort to better those areas! This will help you in your career now and in the future.

Summer Intern

May - August 2019 • Trumbull, CT

What I liked

I enjoyed learning about the type of work that Lockheed Martin does, and meeting so many new people. I really enjoyed an offsite vendor trip in NY. It was really interesting to see how many different parts are used in their product, and how detailed it is to track all of those parts.

What I wish was different

I would have liked more vendor contact.

Advice

Make the most of your internship. You will discover what aspects of the experience that you enjoyed and other aspects that you may not enjoy. It should help you figure out what you would like to do as a career when you graduate.

First year of such a large intern group, could have been a little more organized

Advice

Be willing to be comfortable talking with others and getting to know LOTS of people.

Electrical Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Manassas, VA

What I liked

I got to work side by side with full time engineers on a team that is designing a new product for the company. Tasks that we could take on were really flexible but still added actual value to the team. There was an intern program with lots of informational sessions, both technical and career driven

What I wish was different

During the summer that I interned with LM, a lot of the design was already laid out from years of testing and development and I didn’t get to fully experience that process

Advice

When you do an internship, it’s hard to get work you enjoy if you never express what you’re interested in. Often times, employees are really supportive in giving you the best experience as long as you ask!

Autonomy Intern

May - August 2019 • Stratford, CT

What I liked

Really interesting work if you like implementing theory in software. They put interns on tasks that they would do themselves at some point, so if you return for another internship, you might see your project in use. None of the tasks are high priority so it's not a big deal if you didn't get to finish what you were doing. Get to see cool helicopters and how they are made.

What I wish was different

I wish I had known about the move to Trumbull ahead of time and that the recruiter was more communicative. I also wish that everything was ready for interns when we got there.

Advice

As much as I hate to say it, getting a job most places is all about connections. If you have a connection, you can more or less guarantee yourself a job. That being the case, make sure to make a good impression while working anywhere as an intern. You're there only for a short period of time, so put in 110% effort to impress your manager and senior engineers. People like working with people they can depend on, so be that person.
