Failed Hackathons and Successful Internships
While our planned hackathon ORHX ended up being unsuccessful in hosting Intel as a venue, our connections and work prompted a VP to offer 5 internships for Oak Ridge computer science students. After a thorough application round between several Intel managers and us students, I was offered a position working under the Non-Volatile Solutions Group (NSG). This internship lasted throughout the summer of 2017, from which I extended my position and scope to keep working until February 2018. As my first internship came to a close, I transitioned to a new team where I worked with larger reaching products, full development team, and faster development cycle.
