I am interested in software engineering, AI, edX, and consulting. I have combined skill sets of business and computer science as well as various intercultural experiences. I am seeking internship opportunities in both the computer science and business fields. I would like to hear from professionals working in both fields about their professional experience, industry insights, and career path. I am also interested in professional advice on how I can fully utilize my combined backgrounds. I am open to working anywhere in the states or even abroad. Additionally, I am earnest about entrepreneurship and startups. I would be happy to hear from founders of tech-related startups or alumni working in startups or incubators. Thank you so much in advance!

My name is Rishab Verma, and I am an economics and mathematics double major in my second year at Brandeis University. I have developed my analytical and quantitative skills at Brandeis and I hope to apply them in a future internship. I am looking for an internship in finance, business development, or statistics. I am motivated to learn and want to gain valuable experience. With my double major, I have taken a broad range of classes from Linear Algebra to Statistics in Economics to Financial Accounting. However, I am still confused to what career I can pursue with this range of interests. I have taken a couple business classes here and I love them, as you learn to apply all your interests from philosophy to psychology. Business is a field in which I am interested in as I love figuring out real world problems. Any advice from alumni in this field would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
