Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

The full time engineers and other interns were amazing. The location is the best in the US, the office is great, and I made lasting memories. The tech stack is amazing and I was challenged at every step. Never felt so welcomed by a team.

What I wish was different

Wish it was a longer internship!

Advice

It's worth spending time to make memories, you can save all your life and retire earlier, but if you saved so much that you kept yourself from enjoying life, then what was the point?

Sales Intern

June - July 2018 • Washington, DC

What I liked

This experience enhanced my communication skills, both written and oral, because I spent most of my workday communicating with current and potential clients about the Yelp advertising product. I enjoyed the team-oriented organizational culture of Yelp and the consistent feedback provided by my manager. I particularly enjoyed the trainings because this is where I learned the most from experienced leaders.

What I wish was different

I wish that the internship was more tailored toward the individual intern's growth .

Advice

This internship teaches you how to sell with conviction, a skill applicable to every career. This skill is important to young people because we need to be able to sell ourselves during job interviews!
