Software Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • Middletown Township, NJ

What I liked

What I wish was different

Your experience will depend heavily (I cannot stress this enough) on the project/team that you are placed on. Based on this, interns may have an amazing or terrible 10 weeks. Furthermore, you don't find out about any assignment details until the first day of the job. AT&T, as a company, is unable to forecast what types of projects they will need interns on months in advance.

Marketing Intern

May - August 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

The power distance at ATT was extremely low and provided the opportunity to ask questions of every employee even upper management.

What I wish was different

The team I was on was very untraditional on the marketing side. It was a lot of information extremely fast and it was like being hit by a fire hose. I had to try extremely hard to learn about the team and it’s functions to be able to get a handle on the information by the end of the internship.

Advice

Be ready to learn when you get to your internship and do not be afraid to ask questions.

B2B Sales Development Intern

June - August 2019 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

It was a great learning experience for my first sales internship! Great company that had a great work environment and made it a fun internship! The housing and included meals are a big perk too!

What I wish was different

The days got repetitive after a while of working there. Very individualized work and wish it was more collaborative.

Advice

If you want to go into sales, this role teaches you a lot, but it is very sales heavy and your days are very repetitive so be ready for that.

Sales Representative

June - August 2019 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

I loved the community of people I worked with. They were people my age with similar interests but from different parts of the country.

What I wish was different

I wish I could’ve spent more time interacting with customers face to face.

Advice

If Sales is a “numbers game” of cold calling, then you have to embrace how much it’s going to suck from the very beginning. Shake off rejection and accept that it takes grinding through a lot of calls to generate leads.

Technology Development Program Intern

May - August 2019 • St. Louis, MO

What I liked

I honestly had an amazing time with AT&T in the TDP program. I was assigned to a cybersecurity project, and it proved to be so educational. I had no idea what kinds of tasks were involved in this field, but this internship gave me that opportunity to get my hands dirty. But of course, I also loved the people I worked with and my fellow intern class. It was a blast, and I definitely recommend AT&T to others!

What I wish was different

Honestly, I had a great time, and I wouldn't change a lot about my experience. However, I can only wish that my internship was in a different city that I would rather be in. This actually was accommodated in my return offer, which speaks volumes about AT&T and their care for their employees!

Advice

Some advice I wish I had going into my experience would be: don't hesitate to reach out and network with your mentors, co-workers, and leaders within your office and the company at large. The family at AT&T wants you to succeed. They give you the resources to do so. Don't be afraid to reach out and network with these people to advance your career and to chase after your goals!
