What the Trailblazers said about the their internship experience…
The largest challenge I faced was learning new software in order to accomplish a projects I was assigned. Before this internship I was unfamiliar with SQL Server and Oracle Databases. In order to help my team with testing I had to be able to manipulate and navigate in these databases. I faced this problem by learning new skills and features of the software as I progressed in the project. By the end of the project, I felt I gained the necessary skills to do similar projects in the future.
The helpfulness of the Flexdogs, as well as the inviting family atmosphere in the office surprised me most during my time at Flexware. I enjoyed the interactions with my team and the other interns on a daily basis. I not only gained technical experience, but professional work habits.
I was surprised at how high the status of the Trailblazers was to the year-round employees. I felt I was valued and my work was appreciated. I also was surprised at how much free food there was.
I was surprised at the amount of meaningful work that I was given to do. I worked on multiple projects for clients that were deployed for use.
The type of person I would recommend to apply for the internship is someone who really appreciates Flexware’s core values. A person who does not require much assistance or guidance to complete a given task would be successful in the Trailblazer Internship program.
