I’m really wanting to just quit my summer internship. I got placed in a location in the north east which I didn’t want to be in the first place. The people are rude here and I’m losing money because my salary is so low. I’ve already accepted a full time job offer with a different company so it’s like I don’t even need this internship at all. I know it’s heavily discouraged to leave in the middle of the summer, but are there any options that I could potentially take?

CS and SWE is great in that it can be applicable to a great range of fields, to create immensely helpful tools for other things.

What are some areas where SWE intersects with things that help people, country, and the world? Now also add in making a decent living and generally competitive with other SWE “industry”.

Things that come to my mind are government-related, military, some fintech. Sciences have great need of computing, and can have big impact, but income is less clear.
