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

Esri UC Student Assistants: the New GIS Generation

By Maura, Strategic Marketing Intern

The weekend before geo-geeks invade San Diego, California for the annual Esri International User Conference, 60 student assistants from around the world have already checked in. Their help is imperative in making sure the UC goes through without—or at least with the fewest amount of—glitches. Selectively chosen in relation to their major and interests, these students act behind the scenes of the UC, working in the Esri Store, helping with workshops, and playing a part in making sure the overall conference runs smoothly.

For a week they are unofficial Esri “employees,” mingling with top names in every department and every company known to the GIS world. Ellen Barry from Bowling Green State University explains, “I applied because it’s a cool opportunity to be where all other GIS users were, united. I love Esri products and this is a great place to be.”

Career Advice over a Brown Bag Lunch

By Maura, Strategic Marketing Intern

At Esri, internships are much more than running errands and getting coffee for your supervisor. Esri interns are offered the opportunity to do real work in their departments, assisting veteran employees on important projects and learning about the field in which they’re working. Interns are also afforded a wealth of knowledge on the inner-workings of Esri through a variety of platforms, one being a series of Brown Bag Lunches. These lunches allow interns to hear from current Esri employees, learning about the multitude of departments that compose the company and the journeys that led them to where they are now. Recently interns listened to several employees describe the work they do and how they transitioned from being an intern to a full-time position.
