Nancy Xiao's CPT Project
In the summer of 2018, I worked as Software Engineer Intern at Facebook 's headquarters in Menlo Park. The SWE internship was a 12-week program that allow interns to work side by side with Facebook software engineers and tackle with real problems. I gave my resume to Facebook at Grace Hopper Conference, and was reached out by a Facebook recruiter a couple weeks later. After two rounds of phone interviews and filling a team-match questionnaire, I was assigned to a team under Facebook Core Apps.
The 12-weeks was an intensive learning experience, and company has high expectations for its interns. Thanks to this internship, I learned how to write clean and concise code, how to unblock myself when run into technical difficulties, and what is project ownership. I deeply appreciated this experience as it gave me a taste of working in the tech industry and helped me find out what I really want to be graduation.
