Blogged while procrastinating doing my mass transfer homework. Hello everyone! Happy Sunday! This week I wanted to take the chance to explain a little bit about what Chemical Engineering means to me, and how my view of chemical engineering has changed over the past four years.

While SpaceIL still has its sights on lunar soil, I have moved on to another Israeli start-up: Flytrex. Flytrex specializes in drone development (check …

The internship hunt begins

Josue Josue, Viterbi Careers Leave a Comment

Even when you first start your education, people always ask you, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” This is always such a big question that we expect young kids to know. I had no idea what I wanted to as a young 5 year old so I always gave the same generic response “Doctor, Lawyer, Professor, …

It’s that time of the semester again: career week! That means that USC is putting on multiple events where students will have the opportunity to meet with potential employers, and hopefully secure jobs and internships!

Plans for the Future. As of now, thats all they are. As a sophomore, there are only so many opportunities out there as an engineer since most companies are looking for Juniors or Seniors.

Hey Guys, Over my four years, I have found that there is a natural gravitation towards people who are passionate about their field of study and genuine in their endeavors.  Genuine has become more and more of a topic for me this past semester.  It is interesting to think that there are more genuinely bad people than good.  There is …

As college students, summer is always on our mind. When school begins in the fall we already start thinking about how we are going to use our next summer. The word that comes to all our minds is the same: internship. It sounds magical, right? Sometimes. Other times it sounds terrifying. At least that’s my experience, because people only talk …

This summer, I was interning at GE Healthcare in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When I first heard that I would be living in Milwaukee for 12 weeks, I was definitely a bit apprehensive! I had never been to the Midwest prior to this summer, but I was ready for a change of scenery so Milwaukee it was!

This summer I changed gears a little bit from chemical engineering and interned at Accenture- a technology consulting company.  Before this summer I didn’t really understand what consulting was, and after this summer it is still really hard to explain.  Basically though other companies hire our company to fix their technology related problems!
