Three Drexel University College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) undergraduate students were featured in a Feb. 22 article by Technical.ly on their experiences interning at Big Tech, also known as the five best-known American information technology companies: Microsoft, Amazon, Meta, Apple and Alphabet.
Salamata Bah, BS computer science '23, Ansh Chandnani, BS computing security & technology '23, and Jason Ngov, BS computer science '23 shared in-depth details about their co-op experiences at Meta, Google and Amazon, respectively, from applying to interviewing to working in Big Tech. They also shared how their time at Big Tech companies shaped what they want out of a future tech career.
Serving as the cornerstone of experiential learning at Drexel, co-op enables students to gain up to 18 months of work experience and build an impressive résumé before they graduate that will set them apart from their peers. In 2020-21, Drexel CCI undergraduates reported a median co-op hourly salary of $24. View more stats on CCI co-op via Drexel's Steinbright Career Development Center [PDF]
