Intern of the Week – Matthew Mercado 

Matthew Mercado is a devoted, well-rounded third year Computer Science student at Mount St. Mary’s University. He is expected to graduate in May 2023 with the dedicated goal to find a Software Engineering or Web Development job with the modest goal of impacting people’s lives.

Accompanied by furthering his own education, Matthew continues to impact others’ lives today as a Peer Mentor for his University. Matthew assists dozens of students enrolled in Computer Science II with troubleshooting techniques and Java CS problem-solving.

Recognized not only for being a leader within his peers, Matthew is also recognized for being the sole website developer for ‘Escape This Frederick.’ The website successfully decreased user bounce rates from 53% to 21% as well as increased the company’s conversion rate from 2.5% to 4.5%. ‘Escape This Frederick’ is now recognized as one of the most popular escape rooms in Maryland. Matthew’s transformation from a standard “Game Master,” to Manager, to Web Developer, demonstrates his passion and ability to excel in the position he is in.

Matthew’s avid problem solving and ability to not only absorb valuable information, but also put it to its intended use has landed him a spot on the Dean’s List 3 semesters in a row and the President’s list this past semester. Matthew’s passion for coding is what motivates him to continue to learn new skills and technologies to prepare him for a professional career in his desired fields.

Currently, Matthew plans to start an internship as soon as his semester ends, beginning May 16th, wrapping up before his next semester begins, August 12th. Ideally, Matthew would prefer a Remote internship, but is open to internships in Maryland or Southern Pennsylvania.
