Patrick Hovsepian ’14 is starting his first semester as a Computer Science Senior, and has a job offer for after graduation. The position is at Fidelity Investments, where he has spent the last two summers as an intern. Patrick’s first summer he spent doing web development, updating websites, and working with databases. This summer Patrick spent his internship at Fidelity writing scripts, which are portable small-scale programs. This experience will be incredibly useful, as Patrick would like to pursue a future career as a software engineer. When asked what his favorite part of his internship was, Patrick responded, “It was cool to see the things I have learned in the classroom finally being applied and getting to use those skills. That was probably the coolest thing, being able to use what I know.”
Towards the end of Patrick’s internship this summer, he was offered a position trough Fidelity’s Leap Program. The Leap Programs consists of multiple tracks, and if Patrick accepts the position he will join the software and development track. This means that he will attend three months of technical/professional/business training, followed by a three-month assignment on a business-sponsored technical project. Upon completion of the program, Patrick will be placed at one of the three New England locations with a full-time role in Fidelity’s diverse technology organization.
