What’s happening at your internship? We would love to hear what kind of work you are doing!
I was a technology summer analyst, or specifically a software engineering intern. My daily job included programming to build helpful features for the firm’s website. Besides coding, I did make a lot of good friends and got to meet many awesome people who have been there for ten to twenty years or even for their whole careers.
Why did you apply for this internship?
I wanted to learn more about the tech industry as well as the application of what I learnt about computer science at Bryn Mawr. The internship was really helpful in the way that it gave me an insight into what a software engineer would do on a daily basis and specifically, what a software engineer at a financial institution would do and how that differs from what a software engineer at a typical tech company does.
What has been your favorite part of this internship?
Every single person I have met at the internship is talented, smart, hard-working, funny, supportive, friendly, and dedicated to their jobs. It is the people element that makes Morgan Stanley such a good company for me to consider to be a full-time employee there. I also got to determine what I wanted to do there instead of just finishing whatever tasks were given to me. Thus, I got my control over my career path and my future.
