The story of Grace Hopper (aka Amazing Grace)

I’m a big fan of Grace Hopper and I wanted to pay tribute to this rarely recognized pioneer. She always fought the status quo and the people that love to say “We’ve always done it this way”.

I hope you find her story, illustrated in this comic, as motivating as I do.

Expectations VS Realities of internships

I’m not saying all internships are bad but, unfortunately, a lot of them are just rip-offs. Specially on big ‘cool’ companies where there are plenty of eager aspirants waiting for the chance to take your position. You get on an unpaid internship thinking of the experience you would receive and how it would help you land a good job in the future. Instead you end up doing chores that have no learning value like picking up coffee and other stuff that the company would otherwise have to pay someone for.

Do you have any internship horror stories, or maybe a good experience you would like to talk about? Share on the comments!
