LITS Student Employee Profile: Sarah Robinson in Web Services

A few minutes ago Sarah Robinson crossed the stage at Commencement, but before that step we asked them a few questions about their three years on the Web Services & Application Development team here in LITS. After you read their answers we encourage you to read more about Sarah's most recent web project!

We're very proud of Sarah and of all of our 2017 graduates, and we wish them the best!

New York City

Class Year:

Computer science major, mathematics minor

Student Employee Position:
Lead Web Programmer

When did you start working for Web Services?
I started with the Web Team in June of 2014.

How did you hear about the position, and why were you interested?
I found the position through JobX. I was a TA for CS 201 that Spring, but I was looking for an opportunity to learn more about web development and work on cool projects.

What is your favorite LITS Web project thus far? Least favorite?
My favorite project was the most recent version of the campus map that launched in March. The project I enjoyed the least was researching different libraries that could be used for testing projects, since it involved a lot of comparison and not that much coding.

How do you think this position has helped your professional development?
The Web Team helped me develop better programming skills as well as critical thinking and teamwork. After a year working there, I was able to do a software engineering internship with Google as a rising junior.

Favorite class at MHC?
I've enjoyed a lot of classes at MHC; one of my favorites was Christine DeLucia's Place and Power in the American West and Pacific World, because we visited the museum often and worked with objects and atypical sources.

Career goals?

I would like to work in industry as a software developer for a while and continue learning on the job.
