"At Intel, we believe that technology makes college more interactive, participative and exciting, but technology changes so quickly that sometimes students may get overwhelmed,' said Seasonal Shopping Marketing Manager at Intel Corporation, Alex Carvallo. "CollegeWeekLive provides Intel with a direct communication channel to youth, an opportunity to answer tech questions in real time, or simply provide the inside scoop on a career in technology.
