Design Intern

June - August 2019 • Oakland, CA

What I liked

Interns were paid to learn - what TEECOM does (audiovisual, security, telecom, acoustics design and consulting) isn't taught in school. Engineers, consultants, principals, and VPs taught classes to the interns and we learned a lot about the low-voltage systems engineering industry. TEECOM uses Revit and the designers taught us how to use the software. In the middle of the internship they gave us a design project to tackle, so we were able to apply what we were taught. You could ask anyone in the office a question and they were happy to help. Great company values and culture that encourages each individual to grow. Every other month there is either an office lunch or happy hour. Each intern is mentored by someone in a management position and I was paired with a great mentor that shared a similar background. Interns also went on site walks to gain a better sense of the systems TEECOM designs and tours to understand what technologies they use.

What I wish was different

Nothing. The internship was great and they are continuing to make it even better.
