What did you find most challenging about your internship? The technical part of my internship was very challenging to me since I am not a very technical person. At some point I had to learn and apply different programming languages and eventually architect different solutions for clients.

What advice do you have for other students looking for a similar internship? My advice is be proactive, and different. Try not to be another resume in the pile, try different things and different approaches!

How did Eller prepare you for your internship? Eller did a good job with getting me ready to present my work. A big portion of my internship was presenting my findings and solutions to both clients and other IBMers, Eller gave me the tools to deliver great presentations.
