What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
After applying to many different web development internships, I came across an email for a position at CTG. The position was perfect for my interests and studies and CTG seemed like an interesting place to work, so I applied immediately. I've been here for a few months now and could not be happier. They offer a great workplace environment and I was able to jump right into multiple projects that fit my interests.
What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
Before CTG I worked in a variety of different jobs. During high school I worked at Summer Camp with four and five year olds. As a college student, I've worked at a convertible furniture factory, an Italian restaurant, at SUNY Albany as a TA, and, most recently, the Intrepid Museum. I am currently a Senior in my last semester at SUNY Albany.
What are your plans/goals for the future?
After I graduate this semester, I plan on moving back home to Queens and looking for a position in Web Development/Design somewhere in the city.
How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
I've already learned a great deal working on the CTG Alumni Map project and have begun other projects as well. They have been great at gearing me towards projects that will help me to build new skills as a web designer. I am confident that everything I've learned and worked on here (interactive mapping and graphing, parallax design etc.) will carry on to my next job and make me a more desired candidate when job hunting.
