Web Developer Intern

May - August 2021 • Rock Island, IL

What I liked

I like how interns were presented with multiple different paths to choose from. For example, I was very interested in coding websites whereas some of my colleagues were more interested in designing websites, and we were able to essentially choose our own path based on what we were interested in. Would recommend especially if you are already going to be living on campus over the summer.

Working 7-8 hours is a great way to prepare yourself for life after college, especially if you are going into a career with desk work. Applying for a job that will give you that experience is one that should be taken early in your college career not late.
