Taking the Leap: From Intern to Employee


Adrie, Santa Clara University, 2016 Intern Program

As an intern, it was clear to me that people enjoyed working for this company and that the company highly values all its employees. That was an important factor in my decision to join the company full-time. I think the company has a great culture and encourages its employees to excel in their careers. My manager always encourages me not only to complete the projects I’m assigned, but also to ask to get involved in anything I want to learn more about. I feel like I have the opportunities and resources to continue to shape and advance my career.


Chris, San Jose State University, 2016 Intern Program

The thing that really intrigued me about Palo Alto Networks was how fast it was growing and how much opportunity that would create. I was looking forward to the challenge of helping to grow the business and build processes that would help the business scale, whereas in my role at my previous company I was just helping run the day-to-day activities of the business. I’ve always liked to be challenged, and I thought this would be the best place for that opportunity.


Brandon, San Jose State University, 2016 Intern Program

I chose Palo Alto Networks for my internship because I felt valued as a candidate throughout the entire interview process. I received a call within the first week of applying for the position, and the university team kept me in the loop throughout the entire process by following up with me every few days. Once I received my offer letter, it was an easy decision to join the team.
