Looking back at all of my previous internships, my experience at CNBC's Summer 2012 Internship was the most memorable and had great impact on my career. Entering the final year at my university, I was convinced my next job would be in automation due to my skillset. Like many students in the same position, at times I felt confused by whether this was the appropriate career path for me. Automating web applications using Quick Test Professional (QTP) was my first taste of development, so when I joined the CNBC Automation Team I figured it would be a walk in the park. I imagined the program to be like many other experiences where interns would shadow professionals to gain knowledge but I could not have been more wrong.
CNBC Quality Assurance Team helped me to feel welcome and part of the family by including me in common practice work processes and frequent meetings with different talents within the company. I was exposed to assorted departments of the company including marketing, broadcasting, and business, so that I could capture a complete picture of how the organization comes together.
My role as an automation developer was to work alongside a Selenium developer and create a proof-of-concept on whether the CNBC Quality Assurance Team should be using QTP or Selenium as their automation tool. My manager, Prabhu Panchaksharam, seamlessly guided me through the process while helping me strengthen my skills. His management style encouraged me to face my weaknesses head-on as it would ultimately make me a better developer.
Due to my experience at CNBC, I dedicated my last year of studies to taking web development courses and increasing my knowledge in the web applications I was automating. I could not be happier with the career path I have chosen. My dream of becoming a full stack web developer and entrepreneur has become a reality and it began with the Summer Internship Program at CNBC.
