CCD: Tell us about your internship experience. What were your responsibilities?
Maria: I worked on a variety of tasks and projects during my internship. I worked on a project implementing Amazon Echo Dot Alexa with TD Bank, and conducted research on artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, statistics and data science. I then presented that project and AI/Machine Learning research results to the TD Falmouth Mobile Development Team and TD New Jersey Business Team during the 2017 TD Mobile Platforms Mid Year Review.
CCD: How has this experience changed your future plans?
Maria: I received a great job offer, and will start working at TD Bank when I graduate from BU.
CCD: What advice would you give to another student about making the most of a summer experience?
Maria: Never be afraid to show off your skills, even if the internship does not match your area of study. Be proactive and make an impact at your internship site, and don’t be afraid to communicate and ask others for help and advice.
