I decided to take this internship because I knew it was a good company to have on my resume and I wanted to branch out and really explore my options that I have with my degree.

We started working on the Remedy 9.1 project. It was my responsibility to make sure the knowledge articles were all being transferred over to the database correctly and managed them as new ones were created.

Meeting people. I met so many new people who all held different positions within the company and by doing that it gave me a better idea of where I want to be when I graduate.

5. In what way has your VCSU experience prepared you for this internship?
VCSU prepared me for my internship by offering a wide range of classes that are helpful.

BOTE 336 was also a great one because it helped with understanding the functions of excel.
