Ten Yeshivat Frisch junior and senior computer science students who are seriously considering future STEAM careers got a one-of-a-kind tour of Google Headquarters in Manhattan on May 29. There, they heard from Principal Software Engineer Micah Lemonik about careers and internship opportunities at the company, what it’s like to build a career at Google and how individuals in various fields of engineering work together, as well as different careers in engineering and computer science.
“It was very interesting to see the way that a multibillion dollar tech company, like Google, manages its employees, and how the many different engineering career choices are applied to projects on a larger scale,” Sam Goldberg ’19.
“I was almost afraid to explore computer science because I thought of it as someone sitting behind a computer all day,” said Michal Katz ’19. “After seeing Google, my view of the entire concept has done a complete 180. It just comes to show a young ‘engineer’ that there really is no limit to what we have the potential to accomplish.”
