Job hunting for this semester has begun! It’s exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time, but fortunately, Viterbi provides a lot of great resources for engineers looking for summer internships, co-ops, and full time offers. And while I’ve been accepted into the Engineering Management Masters Program for next year, I’ll still be avidly looking for internships or full time offers to defer on until next year.
In the past I’ve done a lot of research, but this year I plan on casting a wider net when looking at jobs. I’ll be checking out consulting firms like Deloitte, PwC, and Accenture, in addition to looking into engineering firms like GKN Aerospace, SpaceX, and even Chevron. All the applications for these companies are just coming out, but Viterbi provides additional resources through events like VINE- a networking night open exclusively to Viterbi Juniors and Seniors, getting us a “foot in the door” so to speak before applications are due.
Outside of the job hunt I’ve still got classes, extracurriculars, and research going full blast. This week is going to be pretty intense on the research front, with tons of machining to do, and the building of a control system to regulate an electromagnetic clutch for the woodpecker project.
Also, my hand is finally starting to heal after I broke it about a month ago, so I’m super excited to be going back to rugby as soon as it heals! USC Rugby just got a new coach this year- a professional player from Tonga, so I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for the rugby team.
