career

There are a lot of company information sessions coming to Lehigh to show how their companies are and what kind of people they are looking for. Last couple weeks , we have some TE’s, Ingersoll, Chemours’ information sessions. There are a lot of others, but I went to this two, and not only found it very helpful to know more about the companies, and what they are working on, but also found them too be very friendly. Because some of people there were also graduated from Lehigh, they are very willing to help you to find what you like, and answer the questions you have for that company. I was given some chances to talk to them individually after the information session and they help to think over what kind of industrial I want to get in after I graduate.
