William Johnson is majoring in Management Information Systems and plans to graduate in December. This summer William interned at Honeywell Information Technology.
Tell us a little bit about how you landed the internship:
I was notified of the internship through a Career Services email. I applied through Wildcat Joblink and later received an email stating I was selected for a first round interview. Two interviews later, I was offered the internship! I had two other offers at the time, but picked Honeywell based on the fit of the position.
What are some things you have learned?
I gained more technical experience by programming every day. While this isn’t typical of the internship, it was required for the scope of my projects. I also gained first hand exposure to a corporate environment and communicating on a diverse team.
What advice you have for other interns?
My advice for intern hopefuls is to pursue your passion. It makes everything in your career that much easier. If you’re passionate about what you do, you’ll more than likely be willing to put in the extra effort to be successful. It will also be reflected on your resume and employers will take notice.
