While studying computer science I got an internship at a financial firm. Then I switched to another internship at Mastercard. I was their very first intern, so to this day I was the youngest person ever on their standard payroll. I did tech support and other technical stuff in HR. I connected with a development manager and switched over to software development. I took a full time position there after graduating.
