We’re only two weeks into my senior year at USC and I feel like I’ve already made so many new memories: I drove down to school from San Francisco, moved into my first apartment, made 60 wonderful new friends as a Panhellenic Recruitment Counselor, and just had an amazing labor day/gameday weekend. I can’t even begin to imagine how the …

I can’t believe the summer’s over but the fun continues.  Having interned at Chevron this past summer, I’m even more interested in the petroleum class I’m taking now: drilling technologies.  The class has been a great way to connect theory to the hands on applications I experienced in the field in Bakersfield.  The labs for …

The Start of Senior Year!

With the second week of school just beginning, it is crazy to think that I’m actually a senior now! It is weird to think just how fast college has gone, it feels like yesterday I was moving into Pardee Tower as a freshmen. As I mentioned, this summer I interned with Turner in the estimating department. I talked about my experiences …

Landing your first internship may seem baffling, but a little confidence and self-promotion go a long way. Even during your first semester at USC, you will have access to opportunities like the general career fair and the Viterbi School of Engineering Career Fair (During the Engineering Career Week) both in the Fall. These two events are fantastic methods for networking …
