Packaging Engineer Intern at General Motors

How did you hear about the internship opportunity?
I heard about the internship at a NSBE conference I attended last year.

Why did you take advantage of this opportunity? What factors led to your decision in accepting the internship?
The factors that led to my decision include the internship location, industry, and compensation/benefits.

How did you apply for the internship?
I applied for the internship through the General Motors online internship application process.

Where was the internship? Did the location play a part in your internship choice?
I worked in Parma, Ohio, just outside of Cleveland. Yes, the location did play a part in my decision. I like to be close to larger cities.

What did you get out of the experience? Did the internship help in solidifying your degree choice? 
The main thing I learned was professional decorum and how to interact in the workplace. My internship helped me feel comfortable in my major choice and confident enough to move into management roles.

Would you recommend this internship to others?
Yes!

What advice would you give to students this recruitment season?
Explore your options. Fixating on working for a certain company can place a limit on possible experiences.

HendersonSpace Launch Systems Propulsion Engineering Intern at Boeing

How did you hear about the internship opportunity?
I interned with Boeing my freshmen summer and knew about what kind of internships they offer.

Why did you take advantage of this opportunity? What factors led to your decision in accepting the internship?
I plan to pursue a Master’s and a PhD focused in Propulsion and Combustion and knew this would be a great opportunity to see if it was something worth pursuing or if I should revise this goal.

How did you apply for the internship?
I was already in their system because of my previous internship so I leveraged my connections with hiring managers to get the position I was looking for.

Where was the internship? Did the location play a part in your internship choice?
One of my top goals for the summer was to work in Houston, Texas which was the internship location. I wanted to be in a city I knew was fun and where I could find alumni.

What did you get out of the experience? Did the internship help in solidifying your degree choice? 
I learned how much I love technical work. I will definitely be pursuing my graduate school degrees focusing in Propulsion and Combustion.

Would you recommend this internship to others?
Yes! I worked with some stellar individuals this summer.

What advice would you give to students this recruitment season?
Do not be discouraged and never stop trying. Do something different by reaching out to companies you would not think of working for because you never know what they have available.

Co-op Student at ExxonMobil

How did you hear about the co-op opportunity?
I heard about co-ops through Professional Practice Division Database (P2D2), which is now the Center for Career Discovery and Development (C2D2). This department focuses on connecting students with internships and programs.

Why did you take advantage of this opportunity? What factors led to your decision in accepting the internship?
My primary reason for seeking this co-op was to gain work experience. I had none to speak of when I came to Tech as a freshman. I continued with the co-op because it paid very well and opened up excellent post-graduation career opportunities with ExxonMobil.

How did you apply for the co-op?
I submitted my resume to P2D2 and was selected for an on-campus interview. The location had very little impact on my decision but, given a choice, I may choose to work in Texas but not in the Houston area.

Where was the co-op? Did the location play a part in your internship choice?
The co-op was in Baytown, Texas, just east of Houston.

What did you get out of the experience? Did the co-p help in solidifying your degree choice? 
I learned about jobs in the petroleum industry as well as piping and pressure vessels and several kinds of analysis software including ABAQUS (for finite element analysis). It certainly helped me choose to stay with Mechanical Engineering.

Would you recommend this co-op to others?
Yes, absolutely.

What advice would you give to students this recruitment season?
The best time to start a co-op is sophomore year. Internships are probably similar, but you have more freedom in when you choose to go because interning only takes one semester. If you’re looking to do something the summer of freshman year, consider study abroad (especially if you’re an out-of-state student).
