With warm pizza and personal stories, big sisters from WiCS calmed down freshmen’s high-strung nerve around the mysterious first-year internship experience—“In my group, many members had children of my age. It was like becoming the child of the family for one month. So don’t be afraid to ask for help, because everyone on your team will love to see you succeed. In the end, you will definitely learn a ton.” Isabela recounted her Adobe internship as such.
By going through the application process and providing a look into the days at work, the panel held on Oct 2nd prepared freshmen to start early and work on application during fall break. Five upperclasswomen shared their experience in Adobe, IIP, Google EP, Facebook U and Microsoft Explore. With their advice and encouragement, let’s hope all the 2020 freshmen land on a rewarding summer!
