Hi everyone! Can’t believe it’s finally fall in LA, we had our first cold day today!  Fall always brings new experiences, and something new that I’m doing this fall is interning with Webcor Builders in Downtown LA, less than a ten minute drive from my apartment.  It’s been an amazing experience so far, and I can’t wait to get more into …

Somehow this week is my fourth and final undergraduate fall internship week! I swear I was just headed to my very first one with my freshman academy class. Lucky for me, as a senior this week means lots of networking with companies I am familiar with, as well as reflecting on the work that I’ve done in the past. As …

Sophie Chemical, Sophie, Viterbi Careers Leave a Comment

I’ve already talked a few times about my internship this year, because it was definitely the most exciting thing I did this summer! But believe it or not, it’s already time to start looking for an internship for Summer 2016. Searching for an internship can be a lot of work, and it starts early in the school year. Especially as …

Jordan Biomedical, Jordan, Viterbi Careers Leave a Comment

My #ViterbiCareer Hey guys, This week I wanted to write about my professional work experience here at the University of Southern California. My freshman year summer I worked with USC Summer Conferences and stayed in the Los Angeles area; they provided free housing throughout the summer, and I was able to see how things worked in a ‘hospitality’ based industry. …

Networking and the “Trojan Family”

Bria Bria Leave a Comment

You may have heard about the USC Alumni Association or seen the phrase “Trojan Family” on some t-shirts, and maybe you’ve even heard how USC has great networking. I know I heard these things before I decided to come here and also as an incoming freshman, but I didn’t know what being a part of the “Trojan Family” really meant until my hometown’s …


Advancing Your Career Early with Viterbi

Michelle Michelle Leave a Comment

It’s pretty common to hear that “It’s impossible to get an internship as a freshman in college!” In my experience, that’s definitely not the case at Viterbi! Coming into college, I had minimal experience with networking, and I never had the chance to talk to industry representatives before. But, after joining several organizations and looking into the resources that Viterbi …

Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.” As May 1st, 2012, college decision deadline quickly approached, I probably spent more time thinking about New Space (What is New Space? than …
