Meet Samsung Interns
Saeid, Software Engineering Intern, Samsung Media Solutions Center America (MSCA)
- His Background: Saeid was working towards obtaining his Master’s degree in Computer Science from California State University at Long Beach, when he first joined SRA as an intern for the summer of 2012.
- Real Responsibilities: Saeid worked on an exciting yet challenging project to develop a new video learning application for Khan Academy, a not-for-profit educational organization that Samsung’s MSCA was partnering with. The application was developed to enable students to draw, write, and take notes on their tablets while simultaneously viewing one of Kahn Academy’s extensive instructional videos.
- High Impact: To commence the partnership, a program was launched in which Samsung provided the Mountain View Whisman School District with Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets, preloaded with the application. Playing an integral part in this initiative, his work acted as a catalyst to bring new and immersive digital learning experiences into the classroom, improve student engagement, and empower teachers
Upon graduating, he accepted a full-time offer and is continuing to pursue his passion in innovative technologies with Samsung.
I Applied! What Happens Next?
Thank you for your interest in joining our internship program. We hope that you feel passionate about the positions that you applied for, as much as we are excited to learn more about your unique talent.
- Contact from our recruiters: If we see a good fit between our goals and your qualifications, our recruiter will contact you to learn more about your interests and background. This is also a good chance for you to ask questions that you might have in regards to the position! As we just started our conversation, we are sure that you would want to know more about it – don’t hesitate to ask.
- Speak with potential supervisor and team members: Samsung candidates are typically invited to an onsite interview after the initial phone interview; however, given that our interns come from all over the U.S. and abroad, the onsite interview may be substituted with phone or video conference calls.
The interviews are conducted in order to further assess your knowledge, skills, and passion in regards to the role that you are interviewing for. If you applied for a technical position, please be prepared to answer technical questions to exhibit your proficiency in coding, algorithms and data structures.
- Hiring decision: Decisions will be made after careful consideration by everyone who you have spoken with. This may take some time – although Samsung is a fast-paced environment, inviting top talent is one of our utmost priorities and we want to take time to ensure that this opportunity will allow us to learn and grow together. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your recruiter.

- Ask questions. This may be the single most crucial tip for your success for three main reasons. For one, it tells us how interested and passionate you are, as well as how much you understand so far. Secondly, you will also get to know more about what it is really like working here, which will help you make the most informed decision. It also helps creating rapport, so the interview becomes more of a natural two-way conversation.

Additional Tips for Technical Interviews:
- If you get stumped, ask the interviewer to elaborate, give you hints, etc., to get you through the coding exercise or question.
- It is okay if you do not have a perfect answer, but it is important to demonstrate your problem-solving approach.
