LSV++: Externship at VMware

How do you value time? Time is an abstract concept, making it difficult to establish value, regardless of metrics. But the question still persists: how do you value time?

Personally, I value time using information. The more information, or learning, within a time, the greater value it holds. Therefore, the three days I spent at VMware hold so much value that there is no adequate way to represent it. Having the opportunity to work with Tom Gillis and understand the inner workings of his business unit was invaluable.

Throughout the externship the sheer amount of information I learned was incredible. By sitting in meetings, speaking to employees, and asking lots of questions, I gathered more knowledge than I would in a week of school. However, with the time passing in the blink of an eye, I realized that it does not matter how much time you have, but how you spend it. Three days at VMware was not enough and I wish I could have stayed longer, but I know that I could not have spent my time any better.
