Ryan Wilson

Liberal Arts Major(s): Economics
Hometown: Lancaster, Pennsylvania

What was the best part of your experience?

The best part of my experience was being engulfed in a completely new work culture and working with technology I had minimal experience with. This really helped me not only develop technical skills with ERP Software and the sprint development process, but also helped me see how the critical thinking I often use in my major can translate to other industries.

Academically, I'm now able to connect the dots between the content I learn in my economics courses and its actual impacts on major firms in our macro-economy.

How did this experience impact you academically?

Academically, I'm now able to connect the dots between the content I learn in my economics courses and its actual impacts on major firms in our macro-economy. When we discuss technological innovation shifting our production function up, there's no better place to see how this phenomenon actually develops than in Silicon Valley!

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This experience solidified my aspirations to work in the software industry. More tangibly, this experience has directly affected my immediate career; after my internship I was offered and accepted a full-time role as a QA Engineer with Workday in the San Francisco Bay Area!
