Major: Computer Science
Clark Days: While at Clark, the Shelton, Conn., native secured an internship with Nasdaq, which led to a job offer — and last summer his image adorned the Nasdaq tower in Times Square to publicize National Interns Day. He says he enjoyed many opportunities at Clark that have positioned him well professionally, including working on the university-wide transition from the Moodle to Canvas learning platform and working as a system administrator in the Computer Science Department. He cites the strong connection with CS faculty and participation in student groups as significant contributors to his success.
Post-Commencement Plans: Jack has joined Nasdaq as a software developer for marketing information systems and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). He works on web application development for a system called MPP, and is in the process of assisting with a major multiyear migration from MPP 1.0 to MPP 2.0. This year, Jack will also earn his master’s in information technology through Clark’s Accelerated Degree Program.
“You’re more than just a number at Clark, and that’s why I’m doing computer science here. I knew I was going to be integrated into the computer science community in a way that wouldn’t have happened at other schools.”
