Join us for our next department tea! Lunch will be available and our speaker will be Lauren Yeary who will talk about her internship experience over the past summer:

"OMG I got an internship in Silicon Valley!! I am the real deal!! I am OFFICIALLY a computer scientist!" This was the thought that ran through my head after I got accepted to be a summer intern at Chegg in Santa Clara. My job at Chegg was my first experience working in the 'real world' with my CS skills so I was curious as to what it would actually be like to work instead of learn. I was surprised to find out that a big part of working as a software engineer was learning! From the super cool offices (and free lunches!) to the incredibly smart, talented and creative people all around me -- my summer at Chegg was far beyond what I could have imagined! Come hear about what I did all summer, what I learned and all about my experience in the valley!
