As a hardworking and naturally inquisitive second-year computer science student, I am seeking software development internship opportunities for the summer 2023 term.
From my first day attending Western University's "Bit By Bit" computer camp as a child, I knew coding would be a lifelong passion. With the desire to express my creativity through code only growing throughout secondary school, I landed on the Lakehead-Georgian partnership program to take my study of computer science to the next level. This program allows me to work towards both a Computer Programming Diploma and an Honours Bachelor of Science concurrently, offering me the opportunity to complete lots of hands-on work to complement the traditional computer science curriculum.
After finishing first year with a GPA of 95%, I began an internship at Lakeside Process Controls with the Business Operations team where, among many other lessons, the importance of creating thorough documentation of my work was instilled in me. Coupled with the experience of working on a massive real-world database, this internship was invaluable to me in connecting the theoretical knowledge I gained in school with actual industry practices.
With the knowledge gained through both an internship and two years of studies, I hope to find a software development internship this coming summer where I can use my creativity to solve challenging programs while making a difference in the world. If you have an opportunity like this, I can't wait to hear from you!
