Manufacturing Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Sterling, IL

What I liked

The internship consisted of one detailed main project, and multiple smaller projects. I am a naturally fast worker, and I like to stay busy, so the ability to have my free time from my main project filled made me happy as like to stay busy, and the amount of work that I completed throughout the summer made me feel like a truly benefited the company. In addition, this internship gave me the opportunity to work alongside operators on the production floor to gain knowledge of the companies manufacturing processes and to collect data relevant to my projects, which I was then able to use in conjunction with statistical analysis programs that I otherwise would not have much experience with using.

What I wish was different

I wish this would have been a co-op (spring semester into summer or summer into fall semester) because I genuinely enjoyed working this internship. I believe that there was still a lot that I could learn from the internship at the end of the summer, so I would have liked to have been able to continue to further my hands-on education.

Advice

Do not be afraid to ask questions, clarify confusion, or ask for more work. I had instances in which I was faced with these, and earlier in the summer, I would have been hesitant to do so, but I quickly learned that my supervisor was a genuinely nice guy who would not have an issue with answering my questions, clarifying my confusion, or finding me more work so that I was not just sitting around.

Demand Forecasting Intern

June - August 2018 • Sterling, IL

What I liked

The relationships formed with my mentors and co-workers, the experience in international demand forecasting, and the ability to learn about various business operations and how each are affected by one another.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have traveled with the opportunity, but I was able to communicate and meet various people from other countries.

Advice

Be open to whatever! This internship did not align with my majors, but it gave me business knowledge and experience and ultimately, I ended up learning how necessary collaboration is among business departments.
