Describe the steps you took to obtain your internship/research opportunity/fellowship.
I met with my career liaison, Krystle Graham, for help applying to internships as well as for help building my resume. I made sure to perfect my resume before attending the Career Center’s Engineering Day (now the STEM Career & Internship Fair) in January. I brought several copies of my resume to the fair to hand out to employers. I met with as many as I could, and this is where I met employers from Jabil, which is who I am interning for in the summer..
How far in advance did you prepare and begin applying for your experiential learning opportunity?
I began preparing in the fall to make sure I had everything I needed to land an internship.
If you used any Career Center services, resources, or events to obtain your internship/research opportunity/fellowship, what were they? How did they support your application process?
My Career Liaison was awesome. She helped with everything from my resume, to applying, to emails to HR. She was the first person I emailed when I received the internship because she helped me get to this point!
If you used any Career Center services, resources, or events to obtain your job offer, what were they? How did they support your application process?
I had to stay on top of updating the company with changes in my grades, as well as any new changes within my major.
