Summer Internship Panel

by Sebastian Gutierrez (write-up & minutes)

For our first meeting of the year, we introduced our new LUG officers and hosted a panel where our board members shared their experiences with recruiting, interviewing, and working in internships (with a tad on their open source interactions in real life)

Panelists included:

  1. John Sullivan (The Aerospace Corporation, LUG President)
  2. Daniel Blittschau (Microsoft, LUG Vice President)
  3. Anna Klempay (NDCRC, LUG Treasurer)
  4. Sebastian Gutierrez (Robinhood, LUG Secretary)
  5. Selina Nie (Kimberly-Clark, LUG Media Relations Officer)
  6. Jon Abbott (Microsoft, Senior LUG Member/Ally)

During the panel discussion, the floor was opened for all attendees to ask our panel questions about the job application process, career development advice, and for any general wisdom. Here are some of the highlights:

Of course, the most important question asked that entire evening by far: > Did you encounter linux or open source in any of your experiences this past summer?
