Position: Software Engineer Intern
Student: Economics, Engineering Junior

My internship this summer was in a Software Engineering role with Verizon at Irving, TX. This experience was fun and inquisitive. I got the opportunity to learn and improve as an analytic thinker and software engineer. I am a computer science and economics student and after graduating, I would like to work as a software engineer or program manager.  Through this internship I got to work on real work, I was not assigned an intern project. The project I was working on involved creating a product to help Verizon developers improve their ticket resolving process for a particular system. The project involved me learning about data analytics, using a new tool to understand the different occurrences within the system. Then I used that information to create an application for Verizon developers. This project caused me to learn new information including a new programming language, Angular 2. I also had to collaborate with a team of other interns to complete the project, this was exciting because it helped me develop friendships and network with people from all over the United States. Overall, this internship was a great experience. I learned a lot, improved my communication, business and technical skills. I also got to learn about Verizon, the different business they own, the different services they provide, for example I did not know that Verizon owns Yahoo and Tumblr. Overall, I loved my experience with Verizon, I got to make new friends, got to know a new city and learn different technical skills, and I am definitely looking forward to potentially working with Verizon post-graduation.
