Location : Santa Clara County, California
Job Title : Software Development and Triage Engineer, HCL at Google (TVC)
I have completed my undergrad from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and have pursued my graduate studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I have used MATLAB and Android Studio (using Java) to some extent in my graduate-level project, as it involved signal processing, and also had familiarities with Python, C, and C++ while working on my other projects.
I joined GMH not because I wanted to switch tracks, but because I wanted to learn some new skills, and it was a great opportunity for me. Their career services are exceptionally commendable. getting a job requires much more than having technical skills. It requires confidence, proper showcasing of skills, and lastly, presentation. GMH has helped me orchestrate my career skills in ways unimaginable.
While really enjoying what I am doing now, I do miss my academic life and learning from my Professors and GMH instructors along with my classmates. My advice would be to build a strong connection while you are still a student, as it will help you immensely after entering professional life.
Being a fresh CS undergrad from Penn State University with no experience and a low GPA, I found it really hard to both get interviews and get through interviews. GetMeHired was a crucial part for me in securing multiple offers in the field I wanted (Software Engineering) in about 6 months.
