When I accepted my position as a Software Intern at Celsee Diagnostics, I expected that I would be writing and debugging code most of the time, but to my surprise, I’ve only spent about half of my time doing that so far.
For most of my internship, I feel like I’ve been in more of a “software support” role; I have helped standardize the company’s software installation process, helped set up a server and migrate code, and even got a chance to create some logos and icons for our software programs. All of the projects and tasks my supervisor has given me are important, I just didn’t expect that so many of them wouldn’t involve writing code.
My expectations thus far have been much different than reality; I didn’t realize that there were so many other things I might have to do–especially since I’m working for a young company. It’s definitely been a fun and educational experience so far!
