History at IBM (feat. Paul Schweigert)

Paul Schweigert studied History at the Graduate Center and is now a Senior Software Engineer at IBM.

In this episode of Alumni Aloud, I speak with Paul about his decision to leave academia, how he took advantage of the resources in the CUNY system to prepare for another career, and why he choose to work in software engineering.

This episode’s interview was conducted by Jack Devine. The music is “Corporate (Success)” by Scott Holmes.
