My internship experience with Cox Automotive gave me the opportunity to have responsibility over challenging and meaningful work, while learning from the best of the best. It was an invaluable experience, so much so that when it was all done, I couldn’t wait to return full time.

I attended George Washington University for undergrad and Georgia State University for my MBA. I learned about the Cox internship from the National Black MBA Association, and chose Cox Communications over other companies because of the culture. People at Cox are very open. Everyone here is ready to answer questions, give advice, and include people in projects. The most valuable thing I learned at Cox was to put myself out there, and to take initiative and be proactive in seeking solutions. Join programs and initiatives and stand out from the crowd – it’s how you continue to grow your career.

I graduated from Southern Polytechnic State University with a degree in Industrial Engineering and a minor in Business Administration, and learned about Cox Communications (CCI) through the career services team there. I would recommend preparing for the interview by learning everything you can about Cox. They want and need your knowledge, passion, and creativity—so bring it! The best thing about my experience at Cox was working in a culture that expected and wanted me to grow. It was an environment and atmosphere that allowed me to mature.

I attended Auburn University and received my Bachelor’s in Software Engineering. I chose Cox Communications because they foster an atmosphere that allows you to complete work without being micromanaged. Every leader I’ve encountered at Cox gives employees the freedom to solve issues. The most valuable thing I learned at Cox is to be a sponge. There is so much knowledge around campus that you just have to try to soak up as much as possible and pass on what you learn to others.
