Are you thinking about a career in engineering? Lay the foundation to your career now, while you’re still in school. It’s never too soon to start planning for your career, and Applied Engineering offers two programs that give you valuable hands-on experience before you even graduate from high school or college.
Job Shadowing Program
Job shadowing is an opportunity for students to connect with a business professional who has specific knowledge about an occupation or career they’re interested in. At Applied Engineering, you’ll observe responsibilities and tasks associated with the careers that drive you and have the opportunity to ask questions about the knowledge, skills, talent and level of education required for the job. While the purpose of this program is to gather career related information and expand your networking contacts, it also allows you to be in a real learning situation. You’ll learn the trends of your field of interest and see workforce technologies in action.
What exactly is an internship? An internship is a temporary work-related learning experience for individuals who wish to receive hands-on experience in a specific field. It’s an experience that enhances the knowledge you gained in the classroom, while providing you with a competitive edge when you enter the workforce. Not only does it give you real world experience, it looks great on a résumé. You’ll work with talented professionals in the industry who can offer references, career advice, and information about upcoming job opportunities, and you’ll have the opportunity to learn firsthand about our organization, work style, and corporate culture.
