Applied Math rising senior, Jess Rega, is taking part in a 12 week internship program at Santander Bank N.A in Dorchester, MA. She is an intern on the CIO Data & Corporate Functions, and specifically a part of the Enterprise Data Management team within the department. Jess is primarily assisting with the Universal Staging Area (USA). The department is trying to basically create a program to go through files and organize the major database. Other projects she will be participating in include learning the intake process analysis for USA, creating weekly reports of the status of all the projects within the team, doing technical writing, and business analysis for USA.

In Jess’ words, “The project I am working on right now is writing up advanced macros to connect to the daily reports and pull the data we need from other Microsoft tools. I will be doing a lot of analysis and programming which is exactly what I want to do. The business analytical skills and the technical coding languages that I learn here will help me a lot with my future. I want to become an analyst so the tools that I learn here would definitely tie into my future plans.”
