Subject: RE: HP Corvallis Big Data analyst college intern position

Ideally the candidate would be a Masters student with some demonstrated analytic experience (previous internship, etc).  I’m looking for someone who is curious, can stick with a deep analysis until finding insight, and at the same time think at a more general business level.  It is not unusual for our internships to turn into full time employment, so the candidate would ideally be well suited for such a transition.

Please find the description attached, including the URL and job number.  The job may be temporarily unposted, so collating and sending resumes would be helpful.

I’m copying John McKinnis, my intern search committee lead.  Please forward any resumes to him.
