Williams Students Online, Williamstown, MA
The main way I was able to get through my struggles was simply talking with my supervisor and working at my own pace. With this support, I was able to get a large part of the website redesigned very closely to what was proposed. Now, I am in the process of making refinements to it based on feedback from users, as I was given the opportunity to continue working with this internship during the school year!
This internship has been filled with personal and practical learning opportunities to grow as a coder. It has opened my eyes to a different path of computer science that I never would have previously considered. I have learned to pace myself when it comes to learning new topics, and not be afraid to ask questions when I don’t understand something. Working with WSO this summer has definitely prepared me for the upcoming school year and future job opportunities. It has also reassured me that I am capable of doing great things through hard work and with the help of those around me. I am grateful to the WSO team, the ’68 Center for Career Exploration, and especially the Class of 1966 for providing me with this experience.
