Alumni Highlight: Canary Ly ’17, RN working toward her DNP!

Career Update with Canary Ly ’17

Major: Neuroscience
Minor: Secondary Education Studies

Tell us about life after Middlebury. After Middlebury, I worked for a year as a Medical Assistant at a gynecology office in Vermont while taking prerequisite courses for graduate school. I was accepted to a few schools and chose UMass Medical School, Graduate School of Nursing to pursue a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), in which I am currently a second year student. The program includes an accelerated year of studies after which I was eligible to receive my Registered Nurse license. Upon passing my board exams, I started working part time at a community health center and per diem at a local hospital, both of which I balance with school. Only 2.5 more years for the doctorate!

Where are you working? I currently work as a Registered Nurse (RN) in 2 locations: Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center and UMass Memorial Medical Center Marlborough Hospital.

How did you find your job(s)? Networking! When I initially moved to Shrewsbury, MA, I put my name out as a babysitter on a Facebook community forum, and started sitting for a few doctors in town. Once I passed my boards, they were able to put in a good word for me at the hospital.

How did CCI help you find this opportunity? When I was at Middlebury I worked as a Front Office Assistant at CCI. After working with such a great group of people there, I saw the benefits of branching out and not being afraid to ask for help. It never hurts to ask!

What advice do you have for Middlebury students looking for an internship? Push yourself to do the most you can. Network, be yourself, and never forget that you have a great community of resources at your fingertips. You just have to use them!

What is the most rewarding aspect of your work? The most rewarding part of working two different jobs is that I get to see the best of both worlds: seeing families and getting to work with kids in the outpatient setting, and then being a part of the treatment team and caring for sick adults in the inpatient setting!

What do you wish you knew before interning that you would like to share with Middlebury students? Don’t doubt your ability to learn on the job–it’s not always about knowing everything in the books! Also, no question is a dumb question.

If you want to network, you can connect with Canary via Midd2Midd!

We are experts in Salesforce’s applications, platform, and technology, but explain it in terms of the business impact and value it delivers. SEs work primarily with the account teams to give our customers the confidence to move forward with their projects using Salesforce as their preferred technology. The key to this is unearthing and understanding the customer’s business imperatives. This is done through workshops, research, investigation, and spending time with key stakeholders. We then map Salesforce’s technology to these imperatives and prove how Salesforce uniquely addresses the customer’s requirements. This proof can be as simple as a one-off meeting or involve a complex account strategy involving large teams.

  • Assist with hands-on product workshops and education sessions
  • Assist sales teams with product demo design, build, and delivery
  • Assist sales teams in responses to customer RFPs and requirements documents.

  • Participate in all appropriate product, sales, and procedural training and certification to acquire and maintain the knowledge necessary to be effective in the position.
  • Demonstrate deep product knowledge of Salesforce products
  • Cover trade show booth shifts. Responsibilities include answering technical questions and demonstrating Salesforce solutions to customers and prospects.
  • Attain quarterly and annual objectives assigned by management.

Who are we looking for?

  • You will be or are a recent graduate (within 1 year of graduation, graduation of Spring 2019 or December 2019) in Computing/STEM, Informatics, Business, Computer Science, Management, Software Engineering, MIS or equivalent – or you’ve completed a degree with a combination of business and technical subjects.
  • You thrive when solving challenges – no matter how large or small.
  • You are inquisitive, curious, and approach work with humility, determination, and grit.
  • You are passionate about helping people through technology.
  • You are a technology enthusiast, excited by constant innovation and re-imagining the future. Whether you code, or just geek out the latest and greatest – there’s a place for you with Solution Engineering!
  • You value inclusivity and equality for all – in your community and where you work.
  • Understanding of Customer Service offerings in the market and ability to discuss cloud architectures
  • Flexibility to travel to customer on-sites
