How my internship kick-started my career

Ramon.jpgLast winter I applied for a Marketing internship at HP. At that time I had no idea that my life would change so much. During that internship, I faced a lot of interesting challenges, met awesome people, trained and got trained and got a great opportunity. Here is just a little hint of what I did that this past summer.

A look back on my first 18 months at HP

teaser 2.JPG



Prior to joining HP, I had worked at tech startups, so HP was my first big company experience.   Being so, there was a bit of hesitation when the opportunity to join HP arose.  But in the end, I decided that I had nothing to lose, so I accepted the offer, moved to Silicon Valley, and started my role as a Community Manager at HP.

It is not required that you have a varied career at HP – you can choose to stay in business operations or engineering or design throughout your entire career if that is your preference.  But if you’re like me and want to gain new skills and shift your thinking now and then, HP is a great place to do it!

I was asked 2 great questions this week related to personal and professional development. A topic that I think of frequently and work on continuously.


Firstly, how do you manage to carve out time for your own development and keep growing yourself? And, secondly, how do you foster a learning culture in your organization?

Summer 2016 interns at HP Labs – Xi Liu

Xi Liu.jpg


Michigan State University Ph.D. student Xi Liu is interning this summer in HP’s Print and 3D Lab, where she’s excited to be taking on new challenges in data mining, her main area of research interest. “Some companies just tell their interns what to work on,” she notes. “But at HP Labs, you can find something that both you and your advisors care about, so it's a great opportunity to get interesting work done.” Xi grew up in the heart of the ancient Chinese city of Xi’an and attended the Xi’an Jiaotong University, where she received her BS in electrical engineering. She’s now a rising fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in computer science and engineering at Michigan State. Outside of work, she likes to hike and play the violin.

Summer 2016 interns at HP Labs – Camille Eddy



Camille Eddy has wanted to be an astronaut since the age of twelve. That led the native of Idaho to focus on engineering and computer science as she was home schooled through high school and then to major in mechanical engineering at Boise State, where she’s a rising senior. “I see robots and artificial intelligence as having some really cool applications for space and for technology in general, and I just want to keep driving towards that,” she says. Already making her mark, Eddy was chosen to introduce President Obama when he visited Boise State to speak about education and innovation last year and is the recent recipient of a McNair Scholarship, a program that prepares students who are traditionally underrepresented in graduate education for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities.

Summer 2016 interns at HP Labs - Cody Carlton


Cody Carlton had never taken a course in computer science before arriving at college. But he decided to try programming in his freshman year at Stanford University and ended up taking three CS classes. Now a rising sophomore, he’s thinking about majoring in either computer science or management science and engineering. Home for Carlton is Fort Collins, Colorado, where he grew up loving the outdoors and where he’s returned this summer to intern at HP Labs’ Fort Collins outpost. “Both the Rocky Mountains and HP are ten minutes from my house,” he says, “so it’s worked out pretty well.”

Creating tech that touches human emotions
