Dell Technologies

Marketing Intern

June - July 2020 • Hopkinton, MA

What I liked

The environment and culture at Dell technologies! I also loved meeting interns from all over the U.S.

What I wish was different

The experience was remote and I wish it could have been in person but Dell made sure everyone had a great time during their internship even if it was remote.

Advice

Networking made the internship even more fun because I was able to connect with the Dell team and full time workers even before my internship. I would recommend doing your research about the company before going into an interview and making sure that you share the same values as the company.

Indirect Technology and Software Procurement Intern

May - August 2019 • Austin, TX

What I liked

My internship was a lot of fun and I could tell that Dell puts a TON of energy into their internship program. I learned a lot about supply chain at Dell but also about their open culture. Every employee regardless of title was happy and interested in meeting with Interns. I also had an awesome manager that met with me weekly and ensured everyone on our team helped the interns and built relationships with us all. We also got to have brown bag lunches and round tables with senior executives like Jeff Clarke and Michael Dell himself.

What I wish was different

Overall I had no complaints about my internship, it was such a good experience.

Advice

I would tell students who are going into an internship is to be comfortable with ambiguity. The first few weeks at your internship or even your new job, it's okay if you don't completely understand what you are doing or how everything works because it does take time to adjust and you will eventually get the hang of it.

Inside Sales Intern

June - August 2019 • Round Rock, TX

What I liked

I loved the people and the environment! Dell has a very open and social office space which is really nice when you're an intern and are constantly looking for people to connect with. I also gained a lot of experience with Salesforce.

What I wish was different

They were very disorganized and I wish my internship had been a little more structured.

Advice

Just because your an intern doesn't mean companies will guide you through your whole experience! Sometimes you will need to do your own research to get the answers you want and take initiative to make your own connections within the company.

Global Operations Intern

May - August 2019 • Austin, TX

What I liked

I liked that my skills were valued by the organization. I also really appreciated the open culture. No matter what level, people were always willing to meet with you and have a 1x1 meeting. Everyone was genuinely interested in helping me figure out what I wanted to do in the future, whether that was with Dell or another company.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship hadn't been as independent actually. The whole internship was structured around working on a project. However, it was often difficult to get help from the team as they also all had their own projects to work on. It would have been nice to help with their projects and learn from them in a work setting rather than just trying to get their help with the intern project.

Advice

My advice to anyone interning at Dell would be just talking to as many people as possible. It can be scary, but reach out and put yourself out there. Dell is a HUGE organization and you should talk to as many people and learn as much as you can about all the teams at Dell. You never know when you might discover your true passion.
