from FSU Art BA ’19 Conner Berg:
“This semester I had the opportunity to be a Developer for Covalent Reality. I was given this incredible experience by Thomas Jackson and his amazing team. When I say the experience has been incredible, I really mean it. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I’d be given the opportunity to work with a Virtual Reality Development team, and for that I am truly grateful. Throughout this semester I have been tasked with creating Virtual Reality landscapes and designs to be used by clients. This Internship has not only been an experience, but also a journey.
Building new virtual reality worlds was only the beginning for me at Covalent. My time at Covalent Reality has not only taught me the ins and outs of being a virtual reality developer, but it has also taught me how to function in a practical team-based workplace setting. One of the greatest things about Covalent is the people. The people I have met at Covalent have been so helpful and dedicated to seeing me succeed. When I first started, I faced many challenges. For example, I didn’t know the programs/tools I was working with and I didn’t know how to fix certain technological errors with my designs. But that wasn’t a problem. The people at Covalent guided me through the process every step of the way and now, because of this, at the end of the semester I feel as if I’ve received a genuine education in my field.
If you’re looking for a tech savvy, design heavy, Internship, I cannot recommend Covalent Reality enough. I’ve had so many memorable experiences here in one semester alone. From making presentations in front of my peers at the FSU Innovation Hub, to building new worlds with people I genuinely consider my friends, Interning at Covalent Reality has been the experience of a lifetime. Take my word for it, Interning for Covalent Reality has been truly amazing.”
