Krista McNair, Borah Labs in Brooklyn, New York
Krista McNair Is a student at Colorado Technical University pursuing her bachelors of science degree in information technology.
Tell us what drew you to this internship?
As a non-traditional student pursuing a career change, I wanted an internship within my field of study so that I can make a formal, professional transition and get my foot in the door.
What do you hope to gain from this internship?
Ultimately, I plan to begin a rewarding career as a computer research scientist, but finding a job within the technology industry is quite difficult without formal experience. This is why I am so excited about my internship with Borah Labs – I can demonstrate to future employers that I possess the ability to meet the expectations of an employee in the field.
How did Internships.com help you find your internship with Borah Labs?
Before joining Internships.com, my internship and job search was endless. Many of the companies to which I applied either never responded or had filled the position(s) prior to my inquiry. Internships.com offers a wide array of opportunities, makes my resume visible to future employers, and allows correspondence between the companies and myself. I am able to communicate to them exactly what type of opportunity for which I am searching. In addition, I live a great distance from many of the companies that offer internships via the website. However, Internships.com presents virtual internships as well – I can still get a jump start on my career without having to commute or relocated. I would not have had these doors open for me without Internships.com. Thank you SO much!
