Hanyu Yang
Hanyu is a Master of Public Administration (MPA) student at Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, UAlbany. Hanyu’s primary responsibility at CTG is assisting with the City of Schenectady Code Enforcement project. The focus of this project is to help the city develop a business case for automating and modernizing the operations of its code enforcement department.

What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
I have a strong interest in information management in public sector. I think integrating technology into public administration will greatly improve service quality and enhance efficiency and effectiveness. CTG has always been a technology leader in dealing with public affairs. When I heard that CTG was looking for project assistant, I applied, and it is exactly an organization I hope to join.

What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
Before I came to CTG, I interned for the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York, working with the fundraising department and assisting with brand marketing. I have also volunteered at different events in the past.

What are your plans/goals for the future?
I would like to work in a nonprofit organization where I can apply knowledge of information management in my daily work. I would like to collaborate with different groups and bring them together to work for public good.

How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
By working with CTG, I have the opportunity to work with government, and to help them evaluate their current system and make changes to be more productive. I have learned to use new software and to improve my applied research and analysis skills. This internship experience will prepare me for a professional career in the future.
