I know I haven’t been posting as much, and a lot of that has to do with busy weeks crammed with Co-Op interviews and exams. One great thing about majoring in Mechanical Engineering is that it opens up a ton of opportunities for you.
Just take Co-Op positions as an example. Nearly every job listing under the Co-Op program was available for Mechanical Engineers, not so much for Civil, CS, or the other fields. As a result, I ended up applying to 11 different Co-Op positions, and I’ve had 8 interviews so far. Yes, 8 in a week. A good chunk of them were with Sanofi, however.
The companies that I interviewed for include GE, Exxon, Sanofi, Materion, Consigli, and Air Products & Chemicals. After a while, you start to realize that many of the interviewers ask the same questions, so you get used to them after a while. You just have to start tailoring your responses according to the company you’re applying for.
