“After the graduation celebrations, there was a sudden moment of “Oh, now what? Where do I go from here?” The SEA team was super helpful, understanding, and patient. They took a very methodological approach to building up my job search and CV. I certainly credit their help in finding my dream job as an AI engineer at a software company called Verisk.”
