Externship Spotlight – Texas Instruments

Marisa Allen Student Stories

Over Winter Break more than 100 Eller students participated in Externships in the form of one-day job shadows.

Texas Instruments ExternshipWill Roach (Pre-Business) shadowed Kellen Flynn who is a financial manager at Texas Instruments in Dallas, TX.

Why did you want to do this externship?

As a freshmen who is eager to learn more about business, I decided to take the initiative on taking part of Eller’s Winter Externship in Texas to experience real world business in the fields of finance.

What did you do during this job shadow experience?

During the Externship, Kellen guided me through the wonderful campus of Texas Instruments and showed me various facility where they make the analog chips and a showroom of past products where the TI chips were in.

What did you learn as a result of the externship?

The Externship was a great experience to network and understand a unique company. I highly recommend young students to take on the opportunity.
