USF S-M student wins lucrative title
MANATEE -- USF Sarasota-Manatee information technology student Marina Rambo, 34, topped 37 interns to claim the "Most Outstanding Technology Summer Analyst" honor at JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s Tampa offices.
Landing the highly sought, well-paid 10-week internship was an accomplishment, too. Sailing through the first round of interviews, she was flown with other candidates to Wilmington, Del., for an all-day question-and-answer session for one of the top internships in the country.
The job involved user-interface design for mobile applications, Rambo said.
Never miss a local story.
In addition to receiving the top intern award, she was offered a job upon graduation next spring.
"It's nice to know I have this waiting for me," she said.
