Kentucky State University alumna develops software for Fortune 500 companies
A Kentucky State University alumna found her calling by chance during her time as an undergraduate on the Hill.
Jordan Perry, class of 2015, switched her major from undecided to IT security to software development, which led to her career path. Perry said she switched to software development because she likes to think of herself as an artist.
“I enjoy creating,” Perry said. “Through code and various frameworks, the options of creation are limitless.”
After graduation, Perry has been developing software for various Fortune 500 companies, from Walmart to BMW.
“I’ve had the pleasure of developing across multiple platforms such as mobile, web and in-car applications,” Perry said.
Perry said the most important thing she learned at Kentucky State was how to be resourceful and to not be afraid to ask for help.
Her best advice to current or future Thorobreds?
“My best advice is take that course, even if it’s not in your major but sparks your interest,” Perry said. “You might find your passion from going out on a whim.”
Perry added, “Enjoy these years of learning and connecting. Don’t underestimate the value of networking.”
