My externship with HP was a great example of how a single experience can change the course of a career. After my externship, I started getting interviews, and I started seeing my resume downloaded by recruiters. People called and said they wanted to learn more about the HP Tech Ventures Externship. It was something they’d never seen before, and they wanted to know more. Leveraging this experience has helped me in more ways than I can count, and now I am a summer analyst at an investment bank!

I found myself as a recent graduate with no idea what I wanted to do with my life. The program offered an exciting opportunity to explore and work with real-world companies alongside a cohort of like-minded individuals. The most significant benefit as an extern is the flexibility for career discovery. As someone who had almost no industry exposure, I had the chance to build my understanding of the marketing industry by researching ad-tech solutions and presenting my findings to the Facebook team.

I really want to emphasize that the externship offers many opportunities not just in social media and marketing but in finance, accounting, more. These unique and tailored experiences are a great way to not only develop in areas of your own interests but to also expand your knowledge in general. And they're easily accessible. Really anyone can do it. I did it. So I want to emphasize that the possibilities are there and to just go for them.

I believe business and tech together have a transformative power to do good with high impact. That’s why I was so excited to get into the Facebook Remote Externship program. It was a structured, intentional experience, and I got to enhance skills like market research, communicating to a strategic audience, and putting together insights in an easily digestible way.
