Hoover High School Academy of Information Technology students recently spent the day at Qualcomm Inc. shadowing executives and touring the new Qualcomm Museum.

Employees led student tours through various parts of their facilities, from the data storage room and IT Communication/Customer Service Center, to its new museum that showcases Qualcomm's rich history of innovation.

Guides provided insight into Qualcomm's history and talked about their employees’ daily work and responsibilities. During lunch, presenters informed students about the various careers in computer technology and shared their own career path stories, in addition to offering students an opportunity to network and talk with mentors in small groups.
