Groups I Identify With:
I'm Rowan, class of 2021. I'm from Florida and I signed with Expedia Group to work as a software engineer last November. To get the interview, I sent out roughly 120 applications, and only got interviews at Expedia Group and another company. I feel that part of this was due to my small network. I want to be a mentor specifically for CS and Math majors, and give them advice on how they can make themselves more hirable as engineers coming from a liberal arts college, and also connect them with other engineers I meet as I start my own career this June.
CS majors: do as many side projects outside of class as you can.
Math majors: do not fear code, knowing how to code as a math major means you can go into cryptography, data science, AI, or software engineering.
