What Former Interns Have to Say

SEAN GRADY


EMERGENCY SHELTERS APP

Entering the internship program is one of the best career moves I could have made. You will conceive the application's look with mock ups, design the code, launch the finished product and everything in between. The professionals in the IT Department will mentor you every step of the way. The environment fosters a stress-free working relationship where your contributions to the county's mobile applications are used and appreciated.

The internship program was a perfect introduction into the world of software development. Although my major was computer science and engineering, I had no idea what working as a software engineer actually entailed outside of the class room. Through the internship, I was able to see and experience it for myself by working with mentors and co-interns. The internship was exactly what I needed to boost my confidence and jumpstart my career as a software engineer. It even gave me an advantage in the class room because I had actual real world experience.

The internship program with Pierce County GIS department had a tremendous impact on my career. Before finishing it I started receiving job offers.

Jared is a very knowledgeable and patient mentor and working with him and Sean has been a wonderful experience. I strongly believe that Jared should be offered a teaching position with UW!

I have learned so much in short amount of time, and both Jared and Sean are always willing to take time to help me understand all the technologies we use for mobile development. I am very happy to have been a part of this
program, and with Jared at the helm, I think this program can go very far.

I’ve learned so much from a variety of different technologies.
Jared’s great at telling us when to dive deeper into a topic or when to step back or move on to different solution. Sean’s help has been invaluable as well. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

The internship provided me with a depth of knowledge I
wouldn’t have gained in the classroom alone. It was a pleasure working with everyone and I’m truly grateful for my time at Pierce County.
