Hard Work, Internships Lead to Data Analysis for Navy

For Tamara Smith, declaring a business information systems concentration was an opportunity to expand her knowledge of business information technology and databases. During her time at Roanoke College, she was able to complete two internships that eventually helped her get to a job with the United States Navy. "My concentration gave me the ability to understand how data works and how to analyze a database so that I could extract data," says Smith. "I am still working with vast amounts of data, but my mission is to make sure our planes are mission ready."
