General Internship Questions

(Click a question to view the answer.)

Is there a maximum weekly commitment?

Nope. You can work as much as you want. We only require the minimum hours each week, and the rest is your decision. Just be sure you keep everything in balance!

I'm concerned about school/work/life balance.

Your academic and personal life are very important! Part of being industry-ready is knowing how to balance. Your internship supervisor can help you with scheduling, planning, and other life skills to aid you in that.

How often do I need to drive out to Coeur d'Alene?

We host company social events twice a year. These are optional but recommended -- we have a good time and it's a wonderful chance to get to know your coworkers better. In addition, we encourage interns to stop by when they find it more productive to meet with us in person for training or collaboration.

How often do we have video chat meetings?

Each team usually meets once a week at a regular time. These are working meetings, and we tend to get a lot done during them. These are scheduled around everyone's availability as much as possible.

I'm not certain what exactly I want to do.

That's part of the purpose of an internship. You will have the opportunity to try things out and make discoveries about your interests and abilities.
