The software industry has an intense recruiting system for internships. A supply-and-demand problem is part of the reason that it’s so crazy–there are many more employers than interns.
I'm Tess Rinearson, a sophomore at Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science.
In the past, I attended the University of Pennsylvania (for a year) and worked at Microsoft (for a summer) and Valve Software. (for a different summer). Somewhere in between all of this, I worked at CloudMine (for a semester) and went to a lot of hackathons.
I like to write about a lot of things. I write especially regularly on tech and feminism--sometimes at the same time.
