Interning at Esri a Chance to Contribute

By Erika, Professional Services Intern

Every college student wants that dream internship where they can learn and grow in a professional environment while simultaneously loving what they are doing. I never thought I would be one of those lucky people that can’t stop talking about their internship and annoying all their friends with every detail, until luck struck me and I was hired at Esri as a summer intern! As a recent graduate from UC Riverside and an Inland Empire native, I had always heard great things about Esri and I was so excited to spend my summer learning more about the company. (Editor’s note: Inland Empire refers to the metropolitan area surrounding Redlands.)

The Esri UC: Where Innovation and Application Meet

By Guest Blogger Drew, 2013 Student Assistant

Pop quiz, GIS students: do you recall Waldo Tobler’s first rule of geography? It goes something like “All things are related, but those that are closer together are more related.” Today’s geographers are used to being near one another via emails and online user groups, a far cry from the nearness that Tobler described. However, the annual Esri International User Conference brings 13,000 GIS users together under one roof for a week. The experience is a real eye-opener for anyone who thinks that digital interfacing is even remotely similar to geographic nearness. This is what the Esri UC does best—it whips up a GIS user “cocktail,” consisting of planners, tech- nicians, developers, engineers, and many others. Esri serves up this grand event year after year, making sure the exper- ience is a collaborative one between employees and users.

Attending Esri UC a “Truly Unique Experience”

By Maura, Strategic Marketing Intern

At the University of Chicago, where I’m a rising junior, Geographical Studies is one of the smallest majors on campus. While more popular in the graduate sphere, most undergraduates are unaware that such a course of study even exists. Thus, attending the 2013 Esri User Conference was a truly unique and overwhelming experience. The San Diego Convention Center was filled to the brim with self-proclaimed “geo-geeks,” the term proudly written across their Esri t-shirts and collectable buttons, who were equally excited to be in the company of others from around the world who are passionate about GIS.

“When life gives you lemons, you map the rise of lemonade,” a sign read above my head as I passed through the lengthy corridor on my way to one of the many workshops at the conference. After spending the morning wandering the exhibit hall and Map Gallery, I was on my way to my first workshop. Although my limited GIS knowledge left me sitting in awe for most of the workshop, the weight of GIS and Esri’s role as a proponent of such technology was not lost on me. Continue reading
