Where are you working?
Texas Instruments.

How did you go about getting your full-time offer? What steps did you take?
I received a full-time offer after my internship last summer, which I applied for through
OCR.

What classes do you think were the most valuable in getting your job?
Definitely all of the MIS classes. I will be working with customers, and MIS 374 has taught me how important client interaction is. MIS 325 has also been really valuable
because I will be using SQL.

What skills do you think were the most important for you to get your job?Previous internship and leadership experiences. Communication skills were also very
important.

What advice would you give to others as they search for a job?
While many of the top popular corporations are great places to start your career, keep an open mind to opportunities that may not seem as glamorous at first. Get as many
internship experiences as you can, and determine what is most important to you
and make your full-time decision based on that. In the end, don’t stress but
keep the big picture in mind – remember, this is only the beginning of your
career!

Can you describe how your interview went?
I had two phone behavioral interviews. They wanted to get to know my personality to
understand my learning style and see which team would be the best fit for
me.
