Halfway Through With Music Programming Intern Andrew

Andrew E

These past two months interning here at SiriusXM have nearly gone in a blink of an eye. It’s amazing how time does fly. I first came into this internship not knowing what exactly to expect, given that I had no previous internship experience. I initially felt that the internship could be overwhelming and that my [...]

During my first few weeks at SiriusXM, I felt extremely nervous and worried I might not do so well, but I was told this is normal and I would adjust eventually. To make a long story short, I did.

First Week With Urban Programming Malik

Malik

My first week at SiriusXM has been great. I love the atmosphere. Although we’re in an office, it doesn’t really FEEL like an office. It’s more youthful than an office.  All of the employees are very friendly and many of them are younger. The fact that SiriusXM hires their interns and that I SEE them [...]

Final Thoughts with Music Programming Intern Allie

One of the slogans for the SiriusXM internship program is, “Get experience, not coffee.” Having been here as a music programming intern for the past eleven weeks, I can attest to the truth of that statement. While any internship comes with some tasks like data entry, I have gained so much valuable experience during my [...]

Final Thoughts with Sports Programming Intern Pete

At the midway point of my internship at SiriusXM, I wrote that my time here has been more than I ever could have expected.

As my internship is winding down for the next couple of days, I find myself quite sad that one of the best Summers I have had is coming to an end as well.  I had such a great experience being at SiriusXM this Summer, and have learned a plethora of things while under the supervision [...]
