Software Engineering Intern - AWS
My experience at Amazon was a great challenge in understanding how to navigate the corporate structure of a large company. Many of the hurdles I faced originated from the independence and freedom being an intern on a large and busy team provides. During my 12-week internship, I worked to develop a full stack project along with 3 other interns where my primary job was to build out the front end UI/UX of a patching service on the internal side of Amazon Web Services. While I decided not to accept my return offer to Amazon, I believe it was an overall positive experience, especially learning how to “be an adult” on my own in Seattle, WA.
