Growing up in Cameroon, West Africa, Adrien knew all about engineering as both parents are engineers. It wasn’t until he got to college that he learned about engineering societies and the benefits of membership. After attending a resume-writing workshop sponsored by the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Adrien started to quickly take advantage of those benefits including a trip to a NSBE Career Fair where he landed an internship with Cisco. Two things happened next: Adrien developed an app to connect students to career fairs and student events that is widely used on campus. The other was he got a second internship with Cisco where he led a team of interns to develop a framework to migrate Cisco’s legacy applications to the cloud, a project with the potential to save Cisco millions of dollars and secure a job for Adrien with Cisco after graduation.
