Want to know what it’s really like to work at IBM? Podcast newcomer Chris “Spence” Spencer, a technology strategist for IBM Software Group, takes a few minutes to give podcast host Christine Guerrini the inside story about life as an IBMer. Spence got his first taste of IBM as an Extreme Blue intern in the summer of 2004, while working on his MBA at North Carolina State University. Since then, he’s lent his talents to the ACM-ICPC through IBM’s Academic Initiatives Program and alphaWorks. Spence also fills us in on what it takes to transition from an intern to a full time IBMer, so take notes, students!
