Summary


I loved my internship. Originally, it was supposed to be in-person, but it ended up being moved to virtual for COVID. I just say that I still felt like I had an impactful experience in both directions. I learned so much about potential careers, what the company did, and what my coworkers were working on. Plus I was assigned my own project which is currently being used to make Lockheed Martin better. I always felt like I was apart of the team, even though I was hundreds of miles away. The work was fun, the pay was GREAT, and I still got to participate it a lot of internship activities. I joined a book club and visited presentations to meet and network with Lockheed employees outside of my team. It was great! I will say the hours were long, 10 hour shifts, but we got every Friday off. My mentor was available at any time and always made sure to talk to me at a level I would understand based on my school knowledge. He even spent hours teaching me about useful things I should now to become a better Software Engineer. I got a return internship offer in another competency and i will definitely be attending!
