“I was given the opportunity to fill in the gaps that were left by the pandemic forcing everyone out of the classroom in 2020. Due to the restrictions brought on by Covid-19, I was unable to fully replicate the essential opportunity to work with this technology in a hands-on way. However, my time at McConkey allowed me to really dig into the weeds on the inner-workings of essential concepts that expand my opportunities across the industry.”Jackie Schatzer2022 Technology Intern
