HR Intern

June - August 2018 • Aurora, IL

What I liked

Very interesting research project that involved problem-solving, a lot of surveying associates, presenting, and writing a professional paper.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more experience working with managers, more personal interaction with my manager and others for guidance and help on my project.

Advice

The work is very different from office work. You are working with a lot of diverse people (ethnicity, education, work history, etc.), and you will get a lot of varying opinions on the company, your role, and management. There is naturally a lot of conflict that you will be subject to.

Great office location, great work environment, fun and interesting project. Really great work culture, hilarious team.

What I wish was different

More input on picking my project, more intern-specific events.

Constantly be asking your mentor/manager for advice, but also know when to take liberties to solve problems by yourself. You are an intern and your main job is to learn, but also be aware that you are also an employee and will be treated as such.

Public Relations Intern

June - August 2018 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

My internship at Amazon was incredibly rewarding and I learned a lot of applicable skills. The work was meaningful to me because I could see the ways in which my efforts and my project were effecting Amazon customers in a positive way. This was so impactful to me because Amazon is such a large company but I still feel like I made a difference in my role. Also, my team was incredibly supportive and served as valuable mentors throughout my internship. They were also just fun and funny people that made going to work every day exciting. I really loved my internship.

What I wish was different

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Amazon and I wouldn't change a whole lot about my experience. If anything, I would have liked to interact with other interns more but there are only so many hours in the day and most of my time was taken up working or bonding with my team. But I also loved bonding with my team and I wouldn't have traded that for anything so it's hard to say what I would like to be different. More hours in the day I suppose.

Advice

I would advise people to take full advantage of the resources you have while working at Amazon or anywhere for that matter. There are so many people who are willing to get coffee with you and chat about what they do and give advice about pretty much anything. There's also so many programs and after hours events that companies often offer and they're a great way to meet new people and learn skills that you otherwise wouldn't have access to. I mean just because you're there to do a specific job does not mean that you can't seek advice our skills from all places in the company.
