Major: Software Engineering
Internship: TechCentric
Current: Fidelity Investments

Megha Thakkar’s internship at TechCentric, a full-service IT consultancy, set her up for success by stretching her technical knowledge and experience: “I worked two full office installation projects through the full project life cycle.”

Through that process, she learned the importance of being extremely detail-oriented: “At an IT firm you are in charge of all passwords, hardware/software documentation and the locations of all clients. Missing one password could cost you hours of billable time!”
