In this series, recent grads share their journey to landing that first job out of college. After years of studying and working toward a degree, these Panthers’ hard work paid off. Now they’re paying it forward by letting you know how they did it. 

Name: Andrea Vieira

Hometown: Born in Venezuela, raised in South Florida

Degree/major: Bachelor’s degree in computer science

Where are you working? Title? Facebook, software engineer

How did you get your job? The best way to find a job after graduating is through internship experiences. Before joining full-time, I interned at Facebook for two summers. During my sophomore year, I was accepted into Facebook University, a program that equips minority students starting college with strong technical skills and development training in IOS or Android, all while exposing them to the industry. I picked up Android, contributed with this new skill and received a return offer at the end of my junior year. I’m happy to see more FIU students taking part in Facebook University every year!
