There are tons of companies looking for young engineering talent (even at the freshman level), and the right approach made finding a company that worked for me very doable. My …

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!
