How did you get your internship?
I am still connected with alumni from Theta Tau. One of the alumni, Amanda Nguyen, works in the software development department at Applied Medical. She put in a good word and I got an interview with the team managers. Their team heavily emphasizes teamwork. Luckily, my involvement with campus jobs and BCOE organizations was well received by them and they extended me an offer as their Software Development Intern for the summer!
What is your most memorable experience?
Like most other interns, I am constantly surrounded by individuals who have worked hard to get to where they are today. It’s a lot of fun helping them with their projects and seeing how software is built on a professional level. Additionally we go out to eat every Friday and that boosts the overall morale and atmosphere of the office. I love meeting new people and learning as much as I can from them, so the everyday interactions are what I cherish the most.
Applied Medical's impact and experience
Don’t be afraid to talk to people and make new connections. Computer science is an extremely social career path and no one can succeed alone. Create a solid study group, join some organizations, get involved in research, or do whatever else you are personally interested in and passionate about. You will be surprised with what you get out of it all. If anyone wants to know more about software development at Applied Medical or getting involved, shoot me an email or message!
