"Software Engineer at LexisNexis. I work as a full stack web developer building web apps for banks, law enforcement, and other government entities that provide anti money laundering solutions, risk management solutions, and identity verification. I got my college internship and my current job because of the CHS IT tech prep program. Every interviewer asks about the BPA awards and it leads into explaining all of the amazing opportunities that the program exposed us to in high school. My last employer told me at the end of an hour long interview and tour of the office that he was going to hire me on the spot to start the next day because of that IT program experience. I worked for that company for 5 years before moving on to LexisNexis. The presentation skills, team work, and early exposer to real world experience that this program offers is invaluable and impresses employers immensely."
