I didn’t believe I had what it would take to get a job in the tech industry. I was a junior, had just started my CS major, and had only completed an introductory CS course when I was applying to the Big 4. But, with some persistence and a healthy dose of luck, my efforts paid off! ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

My experience at Amazon helped launch my career in tech; but, it was also symbolic of all the struggle I went through to find a tech job in the first place. In this video, I will be going over my experience applying to tech internships in college, and how I landed my internship at Amazon! ๐Ÿ’ผ

Can you provide referrals? No, as I am not employed by Amazon and cannot refer individuals I haven’t worked with.
Can you help with the interview or recruiting process? At the time, I do not offer career consulting services. However, there are plenty of other programs available on Google that provide such services.

What people think I do vs what I really do. A funny, light-hearted take at a day in the life of a software engineer at Microsoft, quarantine edition. One of the best things about working at Microsoft is the flexibility around work. It is possible, and often encouraged to fix your lifestyle around work, which makes is very easy to alternate slots on your schedule between work and other chores you have to do. And since the company can operate 100% remotely for engineering, quarantine hasn’t impacted our direct job function. Of course, being able to interact with colleagues physically instead of virtually is always great, but remote tech has made things a lot easier.

Hope you enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
