Goodman Networks welcomes a group of enthusiastic, motivated college students each summer for our Summer Internship program.   We recognize our interns are tomorrow’s leaders within our organization.

 One of our major goals within the program is to ensure the students invest in a project based assignment; designed to utilize their skills and talent to the fullest extent while allowing them to demonstrate accomplishment towards a project goal. 

This week's spotlight features Caden. 

Caden is completing his third summer as an intern with Goodman Networks. He attends Oklahoma State University and is a senior majoring in Marketing with a minor in Sports Management. This summer Caden is reporting to Craig Freeman, VP of Sales and Business Development. We are so happy to have Caden as part of the Goodman Family. Read below to learn more about what Caden is doing this summer at Goodman!

Roles, Responsibilities, and Projects: During my internship this summer with Goodman Networks I’ve completed many tasks such as, reviewing RFP documents, sat in on multiple DAS sales calls for Facebook and General Motors, organized invoices from past projects, conducted market research over the latest Internet of Things (IoT) security issues and created a visual over my findings, summarized 140 pages worth of RFP documents, searched for building permits in the Frisco area for possible leads, and also designed and created t-shirts for this summer’s group of interns.

What I hope to gain from my internship experience: Being my third summer here at Goodman Networks, I hope to continue to familiarize myself with how general business operations are conducted. I also want to become more knowledgeable about the sales process from start to finish and what steps need to be taken to keep a strong long-lasting relationship with the customer.

Goals after college: My goals after college are much like any other student’s. I want to be happier, first and foremost, but I also want to be successful at whatever I end up doing. My ultimate goal is to become a market manager for a large firm. I have always been obsessed with research and studying, so I believe this would end up being a great role for me.

    CAD Drafter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Goodman Networks (Alpharetta, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred to the company by a friend who had worked there the summer previous (2016). He forwarded my resume, and then about two or three weeks later I received a phone call. We spoke briefly about my availability and about what the job entailed, and we set up a time for a phone interview two weeks later. On the phone interview, I was asked technical questions about CAD software, my experience with it, and how I would handle difficult coworkers or projects. It was all fairly straightforward, and the two men I spoke to were very friendly. I set up a face-to-face interview with them for the next week, and went in for the interview. The face-to-face was more of a meet and greet with the head of the CAD drafting team and the head of the engineering department, and they explained the job to me in more detail, and laid our their expectations for me. I told them I was up to the task, and after that we discussed local events. Later that week (about 3 days later) I received my offer letter, and the next week I completed my background check and drug screening. After all that was taken care of a received another email stating I was officially on board.
