GE Vernova

Aero Equipment ITR electrical engineering intern

What I liked

I was given a dynamic role and a real Opportunity to observe senior engineers and learn

I wish they gave us more monitored training specific to our role

Advice

Don’t be afraid to fail. You’ll be in a better situation failing and taking correction than waiting too long to get it right

Mechanical Engineering Intern

January 2023 • Imperial, PA

What I liked

Very challenging, did a lot of self learning but those around me were also very helpful in my learning process, worked with FEA and learned about solid state transformers

What I wish was different

More women in the office, slightly more defined tasks

Advice

Be very communicative with your employer in an internship. They don’t always know what you’re looking for, so if you explicitly lay it out for them, they can do their best to help you reach your goals

Power Converter Validation Engineering Intern

May 2021 - August 2022 • Salem, VA

What I liked

The team worked a lot with me to ensure I knew the content and the system-level information. They were very supportive and really cared that we learned and enjoyed the internship.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been a few more interns there (there were three of us).

Advice

Network with people from across the business to learn about what everyone is working on. It will help you develop a better understanding of whether you find GE Vernova's work interesting along with helping you develop engineering skills.

Edison Engineering Development Program

June 2022 • Greenville, SC

What I liked

The people at GE is truly what has set it apart to other companies I have worked for. They are true to their company values and implement them on a day-to-day level. On every team you will find hardworking engineers that want to develop you in your career. They are purposeful in the projects they give you and always check in to make sure you're interested in what you're working on.

What I wish was different

Advice

Be open minded to different technologies and industries that you may have counted out before. I always thought I would only ever be interested in renewables, but since getting hired into the Gas Power organization, I've learned how vital gas turbines are to the energy transition. I never thought I would be passionate about a gas turbine, but here I am!

Process Engineer EID Intern

May - August 2016 • Minnetonka, MN

What I liked

I was assigned a few different projects and was able to work independently on them, but I was also given help when needed. These projects were relevant and I was able to actually see how I was making a difference in the plant.

What I wish was different

I wish my internship was longer. Obviously I could only go for 12 weeks because that was the whole summer, but it was one of the best experiences I have had and I wish it could have been longer.

Advice

Ask questions for things you do not understand. You are there to learn and asking questions is how you will learn a lot. Also, make meaningful relationships with the people you work with and work for. Those people can be important contacts when later networking for jobs, but it is nice to keep in touch with those people now and then, as well.
