Hello, readers of this awesome blog, my name is Chelsea. I am/was this summer’s intern. I’m a rising second year at the University of Virginia. I am majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Studio Art, and have been interested in web design for about ten years now.
How Did I Get an Internship Anyway?
Thanks to a recommendation from a friend, I learned of this awesome company and that they offer internships. I decided to apply for one since I had made a decision last year that the field I wanted to go into was, in fact, web design/development. The biggest reason I took the internship was in order to gain experience in a job field. In computing, experience is sometimes even more important than a degree. I also took the internship to find out for sure that web design and development were what I really wanted my career to be.
