Before working for CASS I was unsure whether the software development industry was the career I wanted to pursue, but I am now leaving CASS with an exciting career ahead of me in software engineering, and I could not be more excited to continue down this path. CASS is for people looking to get their foot in the door in the industry. Everyone I worked with was friendly, patient, and made me excited to go to work every day.
