The Internship Experience: Week 7

This post is part of our weekly series, The Internship Experience. This series details the experiences of Thomas, Amy, and Sean as interns at The Principal Financial Group. For a full recap, check out the series preview.

Hi there. Since it’s the 4th of July weekend, I really didn’t have time to sit down and write an in-depth post for the Internship Experience. Plus, there isn’t a whole lot of new stuff to let you in on.

However, there is one important topic I wanted to cover – vishing. Therefore, I made a quick video to recap my experience so you’ll be aware.

So yeah. Vishing = bad. Learn how to avoid being a victim. Also, have a great 4th of July!

    • Thanks! I’m glad you’re getting some value out of the series! To be honest, I came pretty close to giving out the info, but then I started think about why they’d need the name of our firewall software. It’s better to be skeptical, I’m afraid…

      • Indeed! If there’s one thing I learned from my Networking Administration teacher in high school about IT is that It helps to be paranoid. That’s how you don’t end up with malware and the likes on your system…
