Growing From Intern to Graduate
Joining Guidewire as an intern really gave me a good glimpse into what I was working toward in school. Joining this field a little later in my school career, I always felt like my only experience was schoolwork and personal projects, which for me felt unrealistic. Coming into the internship, I didn’t really know what to expect. But I was greeted by an energetic team that wanted to see me develop my skills and succeed. With a team of three interns, we formed an idea for a project, planned our strategy and executed. The whole time we were guided by a team of passionate developers and some of the managers. When I finished the internship, I had developed skills that I brought back to school and had amazing success with. Upon finishing school, I felt as though I had a lot more I wanted to learn and develop, and I knew Guidewire was the place I wanted to do that.
Now in my day-to-day work as a Consultant 1 in the GSC, I have been working on a project for a few months. I get to work directly with our clients and other consultants and developers to implement solutions for our customers. A favourite part of my day is getting to work alongside my peers to come up with a solution to a problem. Everyone at Guidewire has been so patient and helpful in my transition into my career.
I work remotely primarily, and I get to work with colleagues all over the world. It’s a unique situation that I feel I am still adjusting to. Getting to talk to and engage with my global teammates is very special.
