Software Engineer, working in EdTech or somewhere cool like Google

College (Majors, Minors): I will be attending Brown University this fall (in a month!) and I will major in Computer Science or maybe even Applied Math- Computer Science Track. I might decide to do an education minor, but I've also heard that a Business minor is a really great minor to have in general. Other Education (Graduate School, Certifications, etc.): I know I want to go to graduate school, so I'll probably just get a Master's in CS or an MBA. Skills (Personality-Related, Tech-Related): I definitely want to develop communications skills more, especially written communication. I can make public speeches just fine, but somehow writing professional emails just seems to cripple me. I also want to shape up my skills in Java/Python/Swift, and learning Excel in-depth is on my bucket list. I've been told I'm terrible at communicating ideas via Powerpoint, so I definitely want to improve that. Activities (Study Abroad, Volunteering, Extracurriculars, etc): I plan to study abroad, hopefully in a Spanish-speaking country. Not sure where that correlates with software engineering, but I'll make it work. I also plan on joining the Women in CS organization, an acapella group, and whatever else interests me in college. I know that there are usually hackathons at colleges, and I always love going to those so I'll probably continue in college. Might start a drone club in college, even though I know absolutely nothing about programming drones- it just sounds really cool, and the idea has stuck with me for a while. Job Experience (Internships, Entry Level Roles, etc.): I have an internship with Career Village right now :) I got an offer for an internship with Symantec earlier this year so I will probably pursue that in summer of 2017. #computer-science #computer-software

I'm not quite sure at the moment. Either I'd be some kind of computer scientist/software engineer, a bioinformatician, or a pathologist. I know I want to be somewhere on that spectrum between computer software and biology, but I'm not sure where it is I want to be. I hope to figure out whether I want to pursue medicine before I have to study for the MCAT, otherwise I'll be studying and taking a 7 hour test for no reason and that's just no fun.

I'll be attending Brown University this fall, most likely as a Computer Science concentrator. I've already had an internship for three years learning anatomy and how to perform autopsies, so I will likely try to get a computer science related internship (possibly @Symantec, where I've received an offer kind of?). I might even take a gap year to pursue this internship, but I'm not quite sure yet. After that, I want to try and get some kind of research experience to see if the sexual harassment is as prevalent as I've heard, and to experience the life of a researcher slash bioinformatician. And after that, if I still can't decide what I want to do with my life, I will invest in a dartboard and pursue whatever my dart lands on. #computer-science #medicine #biotechnology #bioinformatics

How do I negotiate for the best terms on a software engineering offer when I don't have another offer to compare against?

Hello! I am a college senior with an offer from a decently large enterprise tech company to be a backend software engineer after graduation. I wish I had some sort of sign-on bonus or some relocation funds with my offer, because I'm not sure I can afford the first month of rent when I haven't...

I spent most of my software engineering internship not programming. Will that hurt me in interviews for full-time roles?

I'm a CS major in college and I am about to finish up an internship in backend software engineering at a division of a very large tech company. Most of my time was spent reading code, reading documentation, learning to use internal tools, writing configs, writing test cases, minor bug fixes,...

What types of software engineering roles will allow me to spend the most time actually writing code?

Hi everyone. I'm a CS major in college, about to become a senior, and will be looking for a full-time role soon. I feel like I'm on track, and am considering what type of software engineering role I'd like to pursue. One thing that I've learned from my summer internship is how much of software...

How much of the time is a backend software engineer actually writing code?

I'm a CS major in college and I am about to finish up a 12-week internship in backend software engineering at a division of a very large tech company. I'm a little surprised at what % of my internship was actually spent writing code: just about 3 of the 12 weeks. The other 9 weeks were mostly...

What's more cost effective- minimum wage in an area with low cost of living, or an internship in a high cost area?

I'm trying to figure out what to do with my summer, with the knowledge that I have to pay for my own housing and all my living expenses. I'm a college freshman, so the internship probably wouldn't pay me too much more than a regular minimum wage job. Another possible option would be to stay in...

How do you enjoy life as a premed?

I really hate all the restrictions I have on myself as a premed. Basically all the things I did to get into college (fancy extracurriculars, stellar grades, 20+ applications, standardized testing, etc.) I have to do again to get into med school- but with a job on top of it. And I'm majoring in...

Is it better to double concentrate or get an BS?

I am trying to decide whether I should receive an AB in Computer Science, and also pick up a degree in Economics, or if it would be better for me to get a BS in Computer Science only. I'm not sure of two things: 1) if a Bachelor of Arts gets as much respect as a Bachelor of Science, and 2) if...

When an interviewer asks "Why should we hire you, compared to all the other candidates" what should I say?

I have no idea how to respond to this question since I'm a very inexperienced in the job market. I want to apply for web development jobs. What do I say if someone asks me this?...
