EagleTech Grads- Where Are They Now?
MAX ADE (A&S'12)
Boston College ITS EagleTech program is the major student employment program within Boston College Information Technology Services. EagleTech is the major student formation initiative within ITS, and currently employs seventy students working in ten different departments.
Currently, Max Ade (A&S '12), former EagleTech, is working at ProBueno, an online platform where you can offer your skills to someone in exchange for a donation to a cause.
For example, if you're willing and able to help someone train for a 5K, teach him or her how to play guitar, or critique his or her resume, that person will make a donation to a charity or cause of your choosing.
Immediately after graduation from BC, Max was accepted into the first ever class at the Boston Start-Up School, where he received mentoring from leaders in the industries of product design, software development, marketing, and sales. During his studies at the Boston Start-up School, he was able to connect with the founders of ProBueno, and subsequently was hired to do marketing for them.
However, as is true for any start-up with just four employees, Max has to be a jack-of-all-trades at ProBueno, working on a variety of things from advertising campaigns with Google and Facebook, to starting a blog and managing the company’s social media strategy, to now working in sales.
During his time at Boston College, Max worked in ITS' Training and Communications department, which focuses on training faculty and staff on how to use core business and office software applications and informing the BC community about technology at Boston College.
One of the projects Max worked on in EagleTech was the updating and maintenance the Boston College website; he said that it gave him insight on how much work it takes to maintain a large website- insight that he finds valuable now in working with the ProBueno website. Also, Max commented that working at EagleTech gave him general knowledge about technology that he finds vital to working at a tech start-up.
