I came today to gain an insight as to how things work in companies. In school you’re just in a building and you don’t see the outside world or how your subjects in school apply to real life.
I learnt so many new things about a company that I always hear about, but never knew what they did. I also learnt about the different higher education options that are out there other than university.
I used to think careers in STEM were pretty boring and unattractive, but now I’m really interested by the problem-solving possibilities within a career in tech.
