Landing a dream job in the tech world
Chantal's internship at Dell, EMC allowed her to get involved with many projects and learn new skills—and led to a lucrative career after graduation.
When Chantal began her internship at Dell, EMC, she was excited by the many career opportunities available for graduates with computer science degrees. The flexible environment at EMC gave her exposure to new technologies and experience working on a variety of projects from CyberArk cleanup to user assurance testing. She also realized that while technical skills are important for success in a company, people skills are equally essential. Her advice to future interns? "Make a positive and lasting impression by maintaining connections with colleagues and working until you no longer need to introduce yourself."
Chantal says, "I never dreamed I would be offered a permanent position without even having to go through a formal interview. To make such a positive and lasting impression as an intern in a company of 170,000 employees made me feel very valuable."
