This week is career week here at Viterbi! Last night was an event called VINE, which stands for the Viterbi Industry Networking Event. Over 70 companies attended this event, and it was a great chance to get to know recruiters in a more casual setting before the career fair today!
Although I still went to VINE, and am planning on attending the Career Fair today, I have already accepted an offer to be an intern at Texas Instruments in Dallas this summer! I’m super excited to be working back home at a company I have admired since I was a little kid. I honestly used to stare at the TI headquarters every time we would drive by it on the highway, dreaming of sometime working there.
I applied online back in August, and was thrilled to hear back from them about two weeks later setting up a first round interview! About two weeks ago, I woke up to my phone ringing with the hiring manager I was working with on the line telling me they were going to extend me an offer. I think I woke up the entire apartment complex with my screaming.
You can never have too much Texas. Thrilled to be going home for the summer as a semiconductor manufacturing intern at Texas Instruments!

At TI this summer, I am going to be working as a semiconductor manufacturing engineering intern. This means I’m going to be working in a clean room every day, which is something I’ve never done before, but I’m super excited to give it a shot! I’m thrilled that I am going to be doing semiconductor manufacturing, especially since I just applied for my masters in materials engineering, and this will give me great hands-on experience.Meet Sarah
