Experience at IBM:
The IBM internship experience was extremely valuable and rewarding to me. I started as a Software Engineer within the Web Accessibility research group developing web applications for hearing impaired children. I then moved on to the Education Technologies research group in which I developed an educational web application using the latest technology which back then was Websphere Portlets. I took full advantage of the internship program by building my professional experience through these assignments, and ensuring I always expanded my networking group. Through these actions I was fortunate to have been offered a number of positions, one of which is the one I currently work in. The most important key take away is that the IBM internship puts your foot in the door to many fantastic career opportunities.
