ServiceNow

Product FP&A Intern

May - August 2021 • Santa Clara, CA

What I liked

There was a lot of company-wide events that brought a real intern community together. Events such as escape rooms, painting classes, mini ecogarden, etc. Management really wanted interns to succeed and always served as a resource if needed.

What I wish was different

N/A

Advice

Don't be afraid to fail! The company emphasizes a growth mindset, so don't be afraid to make mistakes, and if you do, use that as a learning opportunity to better yourself.

Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2021 • Santa Clara, CA

What I liked

I loved the team and the project that I specifically worked on. I had a lot of autonomy and independence during the design and implementation process and had a great mentor and manager who supported and helped me grow during the course of the internship.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more of an in person experience since I was not able to go to the office at all and the entire internship was virtual.

Advice

This experience is what you make of it, and I would advise other interns to take advantage of the resources available to them to be successful in their respective roles.

Systems Engineer Intern

What I wish was different

I wish that my project felt more impactful.

Advice

The sky's the limit, ask for what you want! I was able to shadow some other teams to see what their jobs looked like in order to better understand what trajectory I want to steer my career into.

Global Talent Acquisition Intern - Project Portfolio Management

May - August 2020 • Santa Clara, CA

What I liked

The company culture was phenomenal - I made it a point to schedule lots of coffee chats and informational interviews with people at the company whose roles I wanted to understand better, and every person I talked to struck me as genuinely loving their jobs. It was also fantastic to have the flexibility as an intern, and also to be encouraged, to reach outside of the department I was in to get to know people better so I could develop my own career interests and figure out what I'm passionate about. My confidence working at ServiceNow this summer grew tenfold and that's because my manager and team pushed me to realize what I'm capable of and believed in my abilities all summer long. On top of that, the lengths that the intern experience team went to to ensure we had the support we needed (+ added perks and fun events, which didn't hurt!) to thrive in a virtual internship environment made me feel incredibly valued and excited to show up to work everyday, even if that sometimes entailed 8.5 hours in front of a screen. Additionally, mentorship opportunities were built into the program - I had a summer coach (who was a former intern, recent grad working at the company), a mentor (senior leader in diversity recruiting, who I was able to learn a great deal about recruiting from), and lastly my manager, who was incredibly attentive to my career development throughout the internship. Overall, I learned a ton from both my projects and the people I worked with, and I'm so grateful to have had the experience. It was a phenomenal place to work and I'm looking forward to hopefully returning next year!

What I wish was different

My only wish is that the internship could have been in person (I would've loved to have been in the office and met people face to face!) but that obviously wasn't possible this year. That said, I thought the intern experience team did an amazing job of taking care of their interns given the circumstances and I couldn't have imagined a better virtual internship experience.

Advice

Take advantage of the incredibly cool and smart people around you who want to help you out! I am so glad I made it a goal of mine to meet lots of people and learn about their career paths in the industry I'm interested in joining (recruiting). Going into this summer, I didn't know much about recruiting but now feel confident about pursuing that path after talking to so many people about how they became recruiters. Don't be shy, reach out to people who interest you!

What I liked

Everything. The people, the work I was doing, the area and the overall experience was incredible and life changing.

Advice

Go all in and work as hard as you can. The people at this company are absolutely incredible.

Software Engineer Intern

June - September 2019 • Kirkland, WA

What I liked

1. The product I was placed on was great 2. I was treated like a Full-Time Employee and worked with the other team members on the same project 3. The code-development methodology was very unique: we had daily standups, worked in sprints of 2 weeks and retrospect session after every sprint. 4. The end of each 2 week sprint also required every employee to demo to the senior management and the rest of the team on the things you worked on.

What I wish was different

Being in Kirkland, I did not have the opportunity to interact face to face with senior leadership of the company. Although I was able to talk to them through the executive speaker series and intra-company communication networks.

Advice

Criticism helps you. Actively seek feedback.

Sales Operations Analyst Intern

June - July 2019 • Singapore, Central Region

What I liked

The immersive experience in an entirely different culture was an eye-opening experience for me. The skills I gained along the way were invaluable, and they helped to build my business relationships across cultures while also developing a sense of workplace professionalism.

What I wish was different

I wish I had deeper knowledge of the country's history before I went. Singapore is rich with an eventful past and knowing how the country's current standings socially and politically would've helped me better perceive the present-day business environment.

Advice

An internship will be vital to your decision on whether or not to pursue the field in the future; gain the most you can from the experience to determine if the field is where God wants you!

What I liked

ServiceNow really cares about the growth and well-being of their employees. I had the opportunity to connect with a lot of great mentors.

I wish I had taken the opportunity to ask more questions and learn about other teams!

Advice

Network with people around you: set up a time to grab lunch with someone or ask to shadow someone in a different department!

HR Intern - Global Talent Operations

May - August 2019 • Santa Clara, CA

What I liked

ServiceNow gave me the opportunity to work within various teams within HR (Global Talent). My primary focus for the summer was to find speakers and create the strategy for our Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Speaker Series. Additionally, I received training to work as an HR Service Delivery (Shared Services) representative. During that time, I was able to learn a lot about HR processes and answer questions for employees to ensure higher employee satisfaction. ServiceNow treated interns as full-time employees. We were able to get paid holidays off and receive benefits such as dental, health, and much more. There were plenty of opportunities for us to interact with all of the other employees. And we even got to go to a Giants game and go to Six Flags in Valencia with the interns from the San Diego office. Highly recommend applying for ServiceNow's internship program!

What I wish was different

I have no real complaints. I only wished that it could have been longer!

Advice

While it was a lot of fun at work, it is important to remember that internships are essentially extended job interviews. That means you should always be professional no matter what. Always show up early and be eager to learn. Take lots of notes throughout your internship because you want to retain all the information that you learn. Say hi to everyone and establish those meaningful relationships. One of the best pieces of advice I received was to ask to have lunch with people you are interested in learning from. It doesn't matter if you don't know them or they not be working the job you may want. As long as you can learn from them, you should try to build that relationship. Lastly, don't be afraid to fail. You aren't expected to be perfect!
