User Experience Designer Intern

May - August 2019 • Wyoming, MI

What I liked

I learned so much about this new field and gained experience in a corporate design environment which has really set me up well for a job after college. This internship also helped me feel so much more confident about what I want to do after college, which is UX design.

What I wish was different

I wish there were more opportunities for the GFS interns to have social events and get to know each other better, we were kind of separated within each of our departments.

Advice

I would tell anyone that’s currently in college to try as hard as you can to find an internship before you graduate. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know, but having an internship helps you figure out what you like or don’t like and gives you a taste of what the rest of your life could be like.

Software Development Intern

May - August 2017 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

I got the oppurtunity to learn and use new technologies to make Web Applications and Android Apps. I learned skills that they dont teach at school. Thousands of employees are using the apps I wrote. Their headquarters is amazing too.

What I wish was different

Honestly nothing, it was a great experience for me.

Advice

Even if you have never used a technology like Spring framework or AngularJS, do not just sit around waiting for someone to help you. Take charge and ambition and go get help through your coworkers or online tutorials. I didnt know these technologies before my internship, but now I do.
