  1. Job function – I worked on the release management team, helping my superiors to initiate updates to Voya\’s financial services framework through weekly releases. I was responsible for daily change ticket reports generated through data synthesis from Excel and Salesforce, as well as taking other data science related one-off tasks.
  2. Examples of projects – my primary project was working on the company\’s data center migration. This summer, Voya migrated all of its production and non-production environments to a new data center, and I worked with my superiors to consolidate this information, create a roadmap for migration of nonprod and prod applications, and initiate testing for these applications once successfully merged to the new data center.
  3. What you learned and how it relates to your major – This internship was perfect for me as it was at a financial services company, which relates to my finance major, but most of the work I was doing was MIS-oriented. I worked with big data sets daily, gained significant knowledge in Excel and Salesforce, and generally saw how the IT department of a financial services company maintains back-end processes to keep the front end running smoothly.
