We have all been there—immersed in the theoretical while in college but finding it difficult to envision how to transfer those skills to an actual on-the-job setting. You may also feel nervous about whether you will enjoy or be overwhelmed once you do land a new job. This is where internships can help. Students can get a taste for their chosen profession and gain a better understanding for the day-to-day activities of a particular industry. They can also make valuable contributions to the employer and the industry at large.
For us at Datatelligent, our internship program has been tremendously successful. Not only have we had the opportunity to work with highly motivated and talented students, but we have been able to introduce them to the field of data analytics and cultivate tomorrow’s professionals.
Our interns have been critical to our success. Since the start of our company, we have always relied on interns to support both our marketing and sales activities and solution development. We have found that they are quick learners and hard workers who always deliver quality outcomes. The rapid growth of Datatelligent is directly related to the value our interns have provided to us – we would not be where we are without them.
But why hear it just from me. Here is what our current and former interns have to say about their experiences working with Datatelligent in data analytics:
“I am hoping to continue working with Datatelligent throughout my senior year in college. I want to continue this Data Analytics journey and see where it can take me. I have enjoyed every minute of it, and I am looking forward to the future. I would have never imagined being able to turn data alive by creating interactive dashboards to help you better visualize your data. Now I find myself questioning everything I see, ‘Could I build a dashboard for that?’”
Uriel Nunez, Dominican University – Degree program: Computer Science
“I found out about Datatelligent through a professor and had been searching for some time. Next thing you know I am now working at Datatelligent as a Solutions Engineer working with some of the best people you can look for in an internship.”
Mathew Molloy, Dominican University – Degree program: Computer Science
“While working and being a student during a pandemic, I appreciated that I was able to integrate what I was learning into my work and use my internship as an extension of my virtual classroom. My internship was (and continues to be) flexible with my schedule. Data analytics is much more visual and interactive than I previously thought. Our team creates dashboards that have so many colors and ways to explore the data that’s displayed. It makes it much easier to understand and to make decisions based on that data.”
Alyssa Pincuspy, Northern Illinois University – Degree program: Double major in Marketing & Communications and a certificate in Professional Selling
“I plan on helping achieve the goals and tasks of the company. It’s a small team, but I really enjoy working with everyone, and I hope that my work creates an impact. One thing I’ve learned is to hone my communication skills. I’m not shy but learning to communicate constantly with my team and it’s something that I’m improving on.”
Alexis Aquino, Dominican University – Degree program: Computer Science
