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! 🙇🏽‍♀️

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! 💼

This is based off a Quora answer I wrote about 1.5 years ago, which you can read here: https://qr.ae/TWRwt5 ✏️

〰️ faq 〰️
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.
