Experience at IBM:
The internship at IBM provided me with the opportunity to see things outside the school scope. It made me realize that the real world is a lot different and broader than I perceived it. At the internship, I was able to interact with managers and other field experts who guided me in my career path. It opened many doors for my professional development and helped me become more marketable to the eyes of various companies. At IBM I learned the programming skills that constituted the focal point of my resume. My one year of internship was the most valuable and relevant work experience of my life. Thanks to the knowledge I gained, I was able to secure a job with IBM Poughkeepsie as a Software Engineer within the Mainframe Coupling Performance Evaluation Team.

I would like to express my gratitude to Professor Murphy and Professor Keen, who had faith in me and saw the possibility beyond the difficulty. :-)
