Student Employee Position:
When did you start working for the LITS Web Team?
How did you hear about the position, and why were you interested?
I saw it posted on JobX. I applied because I'd learned a bit of programming during a gap year after high-school and was interested in an on-campus job that was unrelated to my major!
What is your favorite LITS Web project thus far? Least favorite?
My favorite project was the Digital Signage system that is currently being used by different departments for running slideshows at locations across campus. I don't really have a least favorite project.
How do you think this position has helped your professional development?
Starting with my first job interview ever and ending with a snippet of my code being accepted as part of a contributed Drupal module, this job has been a very important part of my Mount Holyoke experience. I have unexpectedly learned a lot about how modern web development is carried out and how our college website is built and run.
Favorite class at MHC?
I will be attending graduate school and want to pursue a career in neuroscience research.
