Competitive Intelligence Department
My internship at EchoStar has been an invaluable experience. My role as a Competitive Intelligence Specialist Intern has given me the opportunity to strengthen my market research skills and gain a strong grasp of the cutting-edge technology industry. The EchoStar team continuously challenged me over the course of the summer with a comprehensive, individual project regarding Piece of Mind technology.
The atmosphere at EchoStar is extremely entrepreneurial, and everyone is dedicated to meeting both team and personal work goals. The internship also focused on team building, personal development, and resilience. The summer activities included completion of a challenging ropes course and activities at a company-wide summer carnival. The most exciting aspect of my internship was escaping my comfort zone with the team by summiting Pike’s Peak, one of Colorado’s best known 14,000 foot mountains! As an inexperienced hiker, there is an incomparable feeling to finishing that trek and an invaluable lesson in resilience and teamwork that comes from completing such a tremendous task with fellow interns and their managers.

Good Company to work for.
The total different culture from Denver-Corporate to Cheyenne-Operational - two different views of how the work should get done. It would be nice if there was a better meeting of the minds in order to sink processes and be more effective.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at EchoStar.
I had two phone interviews and two interviews by committe over a process of about a month. I was kept informed during the entire interview/recruiting process. The interview questions ranged from easy (why do you want to work here) to more difficult questions. The process involved about 13 EchoStar representatives total.
