"The Computer Science program has a co-operative education option, and I got to do a paid internship at IBM in Toronto for 16 months, which helped me to fund my studies. After graduating, I was hired by Slalom in Toronto to help clients set up a Salesforce CRM solution. As an engineer on the team, I build custom functionality enabling Salesforce to meet client-specific requirements. Lakehead gave me the opportunity to understand myself, helped me see what is best for me, and taught me how to analyze situations. These life lessons are going to stay with me wherever I go."
