Going to San Fransisco was an incredible experience. Meeting other UMICH alumni who studied things outside of computer science and engineering influenced my perception of career opportunities for me in Silicon Valley. Especially at Pinterest and Netflix, I realized that my creative writing experience and ability to do historical and sociological research are skills pertinent to both marketing and human relations departments.
In terms of near future plans, this internship inspired me to keep pushing forward with graphic design. I am so grateful that I got to go to Netflix because I could really see myself working in a creative department doing marketing and data analysis. I also received amazing career advice in regards to structuring my resume and how to sell myself as a potential candidate in interviews. This Flash Internship was inspiring and motivating! I have gained so much confidence and I am ready to start looking for jobs after my senior year.
