With the World’s largest corporate university, learning is in our DNA. We are proud of our academic partnerships, including with Stanford University, Purdue, and Udacity, to offer our employees next-generation training at a pace and style that suits them.
We are born learners and explorers, but sometime during our formative years, many of us lose that ability to explore, experiment, and take calculated risks that increase our learning velocity. Design Thinking gives us a scaffolding for such "positive" behaviors – such as developing empathy, effective problem framing, and working in rapid, iterative cycles of prototyping, experimentation, learning, and continuous improvement. Applying these behaviors every single day to the issues we encounter – both internally and during our engagement with clients - can improve our creative confidence, and help us to renew the things we already do, while also enabling us to pursue new opportunities with conviction.
IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT WORK.
Service matters and Infosys provides a culture where you can give back to your community as well as the next generation of innovators.
Infosys believes in learning for life, and that technology and learning can greatly amplify human potential. In pursuit of the mission to bridge the digital divide in America, Infosys Foundation USA with internationally acclaimed non-profits and institutions like Code.org, New York Academy of Sciences, DonorsChoose.org, and the CREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon University, support and provide high quality computer science education and coding skills with a particular focus on underrepresented communities.
The mission of Infosys Foundation USA is to inspire children, young adults, and educators to become creators of technology. The Foundation is enhancing CS and Maker education in the US by expanding professional development and training, especially for educators at high poverty and Title 1 schools; boosting hands-on learning, with special emphasis on children and young adults from underrepresented groups and communities; and supporting and growing the community of like-minded advocates to increase awareness and drive greater thought leadership.

Change is the only constant in the STEM fields. The key to surviving as a tech professional is the willingness to learn and adjust quickly to emerging innovations. Any developer worth his or her’s salt knows that they need to keep the end user in mind with everything they do. We’re ultimately building things for people, so empathy is crucial when we develop new applications or technology for consumers. I believe more women in STEM will add that ideal mix of left and right-brained thinking that’s so critical for success in our industry.
When I was a student, STEM subjects were mandatory and so I remember them being as integral to my early education as history and language arts. Not that I minded, I loved every minute of it. There was something about coding in particular that inspired me to pursue a career in tech.
Like with every language, code has a specific form and framework around it that makes everything comprehensive, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for creative expression. The fact that you can be so literal or interpretive with it is what’s kept me fascinated after all these years, eventually leading me to earn a Bachelor’s in Computer Science and my Master’s in Finance.
It’s because I went through a school system that valued STEM that I am who I am today and because of that, I had a responsibility to cultivate that same passion in young people, especially girls. After all, many of them might come to work at Infosys someday!
That’s why I partnered with PENCIL, a nonprofit organization that connects business professionals with public schools across New York City. Together, we work with educators to create hands-on learning experiences for their students, helping them develop the skills they need to thrive in the classroom and beyond. PENCIL hosted their Principal For A Day® event earlier this month and I jumped at the chance to be part of it.
It was an honor to visit the High School for Math, Science and Engineering at City College in New York (HSMSE), one of the leading STEM schools in the country. I sat in on classes, met with the students and most importantly, talked with the principal about different ways they can strengthen the school’s curriculum. Adding real-world expertise to the everyday coursework will ensure that students are totally prepared for what comes after graduation—no matter what road they choose to take.
Meeting the students only confirmed that they’re headed towards bright futures. It was so energizing and rejuvenating for me to spend time with them, listening as they passionately explained their projects to me, going into impressive detail about the underlying concepts behind their schoolwork. The love for STEM is alive and well in our youth, and it pleases me so much.
You need to adapt and change if you want to succeed in the tech industry. A well-written piece of code follows the same principal. It takes endless hours of trial and error, but you wouldn’t know it from the end result. Just like an artist, you need to have the bravery to make mistakes, the humility to learn from them and the resilience to keep moving forward, never giving up until the final product is everything you’ve envisioned it to be. This was so important for me to convey to the students at HSMSE. Tech is ever-evolving and filled with so many rewarding experiences, but you won’t reap any of the benefits without taking a few risks.
And it’s not just the students that have a lot to learn. Even now, when I read about the amazing ways people are disrupting and innovating entire industries, I have moments when I feel as though I’m a child again, my eyes opened to a world I never would have dreamed possible. Those are the times when I’m overcome with that same sense of wonder I used to feel ball those years ago; back when it was all so new.
For me, taking the time to volunteer isn’t about outward perception, it’s about committing myself to something bigger. If I want my community to keep providing services to people, I need to do my part to contribute. It reminds me that my world is only a fraction of what’s really out there and it fills me with gratitude that I’m able to contribute with the skills I have. It can truly be considered an investment in my spiritual growth—and it can be for you, too.
I have been working at Infosys full-time (Less than a year)
A good place to gain knowledge on Software and testing tools. A good place to learners and to start software life.
Working under a bad manager will ruin our software life. Not every manager has the same mentality.
Advice to Management
Giving a project is not a giving a life to a person. Giving a good leader will effect in a good start for beginners to see the future.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Infosys (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2017.
I spoke to a campus recruiter about open positions during a career event at my university. This was followed by e-mail correspondence about the associate role for development, a phone screening about prior experience, and an online web-meeting interview.
