Posted by riverbedtest on July 21, 2011

Kate Murphy

Department at Riverbed:  Marketing

Age:  16

School:  Holliston High School

Interests/hobbies:  I love field hockey, hot yoga, running, traveling and spending time at the beach!

Have you interned at Riverbed before?

I have never interned at Riverbed Technology before.  I had heard a lot of great things about the community at Riverbed and its true everyone is so friendly and helpful.

What projects are you working on?

I have been working on the Marketing assets for all the Sales Kickoffs (Athens, Singapore, and San Diego). I have done a lot of research trying to update the photograph for the homepage on the Riverbed website. In addition, I have done research on LinkedIn gold accounts.  Riverbed is starting a career opportunities page on Linked In and would like to maximize the value of that investment.  

What are you hoping to learn at your time at Riverbed this summer?

I am hoping to gain a lot of knowledge about careers in marketing. This will help me decide what I want to study in college and what I want to do with my future.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hopefully in five years I will have graduated from college.  After college I plan on going on to grad school or starting a career for myself.            

As for now, I hope to enjoy and explore San Francisco! It has been a great experience living in a new city and I plan on taking complete advantage of all it has to offer!

Department at Riverbed:  Recruiting

School:  I am going to be a senior at Half moon Bay High School

Hobbies/interests:  I play volleyball for my high school and a club team called Vision, I love to ski every winter (preferably in KIRKWOOD!!!) I love going to the beach and swimming in the ocean, and occasionally surfing, and I love watching football and basketball.

Have you interned at Riverbed before?

This is my first year working at Riverbed Technology, and I love it! The recruiting team has been absolutely amazing and incredibly nice.  They don’t hesitate to help with anything I need.

What projects have you been working on?

I have been working on singling out potential candidates on LinkedIn as well as contacting them about job openings at Riverbed Technology.  I have also had the chance to schedule on-site interviews for some candidates and inputting some resumes into Trovix.

What are you hoping to learn during your time at Riverbed?

                  I am hoping to learn more about the business world, and what it is like to have a real 9-5 job in the city since I have never had a job previous to this internship.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

                  I see myself at a college on the east coast probably majoring in some form of engineering or mathematics, maybe pre-med. 

I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to my dad, Dave Peranich, for giving me the opportunity to participate in this internship this summer!!
