Advice to Management
Keep up the great open communication, philanthropic involvement and the fun team bonding!
I applied through college or university. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Forrester Construction Company.
My hiring process was definitely abnormal. Forrester came to my university to host mock interviews. I dressed up, prepared my resume, and researched the company like I would for any interview. I just wanted practice, and was not expecting anything to come from this interview. We had submitted our resumes before the day of, so the HR Manager already had looked over it. The interview was like 30min. Her style was conversational, which I had not experienced before but apparently I did a great job. Just be honest, confident, and have questions prepared. Have good eye contact, play up your teamwork skills. I think my attitude of not expecting anything really paid off. I made a point to talk to Forrester two more times when they came back to school. I kept in touch with HR regularly to see if they had more intern spots open (as of Dec/Jan they were already filled). May came around and a spot had opened, and I guess they remembered me because I got a basic casual phone interview with an offer. I had one week to decide, didn't have any other offers still, so I took the job!
The intern program is paid with possible overtime, plus paid housing. My team even reimbursed me for commuting costs. There was definitely no need to negotiate anything.
