Don't Sell Yourself Short

- Mary, 2018 IGNITE HR Recruiting Intern

How did you hear about FireEye? Why did you choose FireEye?

I heard about FireEye while I was searching for internships on Indeed. I chose FireEye because I felt that it would be the greatest opportunity to develop myself as a recruiter, and I was certainly correct.


What is the most interesting thing you have learned?

The most interesting thing that I have learned through my internship experience was understanding the whole lifecycle of recruiting and how each recruiter has their own style of conducting interviews and organizing themselves.


What has been your favorite part of your internship so far?

Besides learning more than I ever thought possible about recruiting, the people I worked with made this summer an unforgettable one.


What would your advice be to a student pursuing an internship at FireEye?

If I were to give a student pursuing an internship at FireEye some helpful advice, I would say: even if you think this experience will be too challenging, don’t sell yourself short. All of the people at FireEye are willing to take that extra step and help you grow in your career, but you have to be sure to give it your best effort as you are going to take away what you put into it.


Is there anything else you would like to say?

I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone at FireEye as I truly couldn’t imagine a better place to develop my skills, while working alongside some fabulous individuals.
