Is a U.S. Cellular Internship Right for You?

Before you jump in, you should determine that this is indeed the best place to maximize your skills. The process begins with some simple, well-thought-out preparation. Here are a few things you can do to make sure this is where you belong—and make this experience even more influential on your career:

Learn about us on social media platforms.

The more information you have about U.S. Cellular, the better prepared you’ll be to determine whether you’d like to intern here. And if you proceed with our program, this knowledge will make a difference during your internship, and help you find your true calling.

Determine how you’d like to develop.

Consider the skill sets you’d like to gain. Ask yourself if you achieve them with U.S. Cellular. Also, think about the personal abilities that could use some improvement and develop a plan to enhance your effectiveness in the areas that matter most to your success.

Speak with former interns.

If possible, talk with fellow college students who have participated in a U.S. Cellular internship. It’s a great way to learn what to expect of the experience and determine if it’s a good fit for you and your goals.
