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. :-)
