Industry Talk

Prasanth Padmanabhan spoke at the SJSU Computer Science Club room today about his experience in the industry.  He graduated with a BS in Computer Science at SJSU which is nice since he seems very succesful.  I was glad he came and talked to us because he has worked at many of the high-tech companies that most computer scientist are interested in.  He’s worked at Cisco, Apple, and Yahoo to name a few.  The other interesting thing was that he started as a developer and worked his way into a program manager position.  It was very informative hearing how he did that and why.

One cool thing he told us about working at Yahoo is that they have beer on tap available for free.  Sounds like a fun place to work.  He also mentioned that he used LinkedIn.com to get his last four jobs.
