For most people, Winter Break is a time to forget all about their studies and get some much needed— and deserved— rest and relaxation. While Winter Break should be used as a time to recharge for the spring semester, there are some things you can do to optimize your search for an internship, co-op, or full-time job. Engineering Career Services has compiled a simple checklist of activities you can do during Winter Break to kick start your spring search and reduce your stress during the semester.
1. Update your resume.
Before you can apply to any positions, it’s important that your resume reflects all of the new projects, roles, and opportunities you completed over the fall semester. Even if your projects or jobs are ongoing, be sure to update it with your recent contributions. A strong resume is a current resume! If you need help updating your document, use ECS … Read More

Today’s blog was written by Megan Conway, Campus Talent Acquisition Specialist at Eaton.
I remember being in my sophomore year of college for my engineering degree and asking all my friends in engineering what they wanted to do. That was such a hard question for me to answer at the time. My sophomore year was the first year that I was seriously thinking about an internship and attending the career fair at my school but was completely lost on what my interests were and what companies I wanted to talk to. Some of my friends were interested in design, some research, some in helping the environment, and they all seemed to know what companies they wanted to talk to at the career fair. For me, I knew that I didn’t like sitting at a desk all day, that I loved working in a team environment to solve problems, and that … Read More

The Future Direction of Tech & Ways to Prepare Now
Technology is constantly evolving and engineering in the corporate banking world is no different. There is a focus on customer experience while utilizing the latest tools and technologies. Although, we have found it takes more than just the latest and greatest technology to be successful. It takes great people. We have found that investing in the development of our associates will lead to greater success as an organization and the Technology Development/Internship Programs are a direct reflection of our emphasis on associate development. Since technology is ever changing, we need to change with it. Working in an agile environment allows us to do so. Our engineering teams are about 6-10 engineers per team working to drive products to production across multiple functions.
With such a wide range … Read More

Today’s blog is written by Renee Desing, current PhD Candidate in Engineering Education with a B.S. and M.S. in Industrial Engineering.
Throughout my career, I have worked in a variety of roles and industries and experienced many career transitions. These transitions include changing roles within a company, switching companies, and returning to graduate school. However, the toughest transition for me was my first transition from college to the workplace. Even though I attended a university that was 28% women, it was not until after I graduated that I realized what it really meant to be a woman in engineering. I found that while my undergraduate degree prepared me for the engineering responsibilities of my role, I was unprepared to deal with gender-based challenges. I have experienced discrimination and harassment because I was a woman engineer. While I worked hard on my job, there were times when I was … Read More

This week’s blog is written by Jeff Morhous, current Computer Science and Engineering student (2021) who participated in the 2019 Buckeye Trek in the Bay Area.
Growing up, computers always fascinated me. Once I decided that I would be making a career out of my passion for building software, I immediately learned as much as I could about the world’s most influential technology companies. Because of this, it’s no surprise that in my head ‘Silicon Valley’ grew notorious for its association with computers and innovation.
I applied to the Buckeye Trek because of my genuine fascination with the Bay Area. So when I got an email letting me know that I was going to be spending fall break exploring the area and its culture firsthand, my tremendous excitement was met with nervous anticipation.
Buckeye Trek was a unique opportunity to finally explore Silicon Valley, all while meeting wonderfully friendly people … Read More
