During my two years as a graduate student at the University of California, Riverside, the “buzz” about Esri was constant. Coming from a background consisting solely of business and marketing, I didn’t know much about geography other than the fact that Esri was transforming the way GIS could be used. At first I thought to myself, “Esri must seek brilliant geographers, developers, and technology experts to enable their vision to become a reality.” Then I was given the opportunity to participate in its summer internship program upon graduating with my MBA in Marketing, and I have since learned that this statement is true, but there is also much more to Esri’s success.
I entered the program as an intern on the Marketing Analytics team within Marketing Operations. My summer project focused on establishing a reporting format for data gathered through market research. While my project was business-focused, it required having an understanding of Esri’s product offerings and their capabilities in order to conduct appropriate analysis. During my first week, I encountered a plethora of information about spatial analysis, ArcGIS, and something called a shapefile, among other things. Just as I was feeling completely overwhelmed, I realized there was an abundance of resources available to me as an Esri intern that enabled my summer to be a success.
On Sunday, October 7 an estimated 12,000 people gathered along State Street in downtown Redlands for the 5th Annual Believe Walk. Pictured below are some of the members of Team Esri, which consisted of more than 70 employees and family members whose participation contributed to the $500,000+ raised from the event to benefit Inland Women Fighting Cancer. Great job!
Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California, is about to be invaded. No, not by Africanized honey bees or a new strain of flu, but by a unique species of human believed by many to hold the passkey to the future: software developers. More than 2,900 are registered to attend Silicon Valley Code Camp on the college’s campus October 6-7, and Esri staff will be right in the middle of all the action.
I spent a few minutes talking with Esri’s Derrick Burke, Technology Team Lead, and Shawn Ori, Human Resources Generalist, to learn why Esri is at Code Camp and what attendees can expect from our participation.

“What am I going to do next summer?” Last winter break, I pondered the question. I had just graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s degree in geography and was gearing up to start my first semester of graduate school in the spring. While I have a research assistantship at the Louisiana Geographic Information Center, I wanted to spend part of my summer gaining exposure as an intern. I looked into a summer internship at Esri, but didn’t want to be away from my assistantship for the entire summer. The User Conference Student Assistantship program appeared to be the perfect fit. It would allow me to obtain a first-hand account of Esri’s company culture and to gain valuable exposure in only one week.

As my internship nears its completion, I find it hard to believe that 12 weeks have passed so quickly. Like any summer, it seems over too soon. But the sense of accomplishment as I look back on my time here is palpable and something I’m grateful, and honored, to have experienced. The convergence of human knowledge and technological resources at the Redlands campus produces a work environment unlike any other, and it’s easy to see why it is the center of the GIS universe.
