It’s really hard to believe my time as a SPS intern is over. This past week was jammed packed with final preparations, practice, last minute documentation, and final meetings. I’m truly sad to see my internship come to a close, but all good things must end.
It’s hard to believe how fast time has flown—I will be presenting my results next week! I spent this week working on my presentation and analyzing my data. I still need to add one more visualization of my results, but otherwise the slides are all done!
This week, I finished my data processing application. I’m very excited, as I found an alternative database system that greatly speeds up queries and is much easier to package into a portable application!
This week felt a little slower, as I ran into a fair number of bugs in my project. I managed to finish a major module in my code and make great headway into another! I can now import job data into my program and perform basic searches.
This was another super busy week for me! I only had a few meetings for my internship this week, but I wanted to really start moving on my code. On Monday, I had the chance to have lunch with the other interns and department heads in APS.
Week three is in the books! This work week was a little shorter, as APS offices were closed for Juneteenth on Friday. I enjoyed a lunch with the APS Careers team on Thursday, followed by a fascinating virtual colloquium with SPS National President, Dr. Kiril Streletzky.
