Cyber systems analysis

January 2019 • Idaho Falls, ID

What I liked

I loved that I wasn't "the intern". I did real work and was respected as a legitimate employee. The experience I had working just 3 months from them taught me more than an entire year of schooling could have.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more time to do all the trainings and activities they offered. There are so many great resources available to you while you work there.

Advice

Take advantage of every moment. You will get twice as much out of everything you do there than you would trying to do the same things in class.
