Tell us about your schooling.
I graduated in December from Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.
Is this your first internship?
This is my first internship. I heard of McCarthy Engineering because of their location in Boyertown. I grew up in Berks County. I went to High Point Baptist Academy in Birdsboro. I then researched McCarthy online and found their internship opportunities on the website. I actually tried two years ago but no internships were available at the time so when I contacted them again this past December interviewed and was offered the internship I was really excited to have the opportunity to work for a local firm.
Why did you want to intern at McCarthy Engineering?
I wanted to have an internship at McCarthy Engineering because it is a multi-disciplinary firm. Even though I graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering I took some Civil Engineering courses that interested me, and I am considering studying Civil Engineering in grad school. So I wanted to gain first-hand experience to see if Civil was a fit for my future and I thought it was beneficial to gain general experience in the engineering field to begin with.
What are your expectations of the internship?
I hope to understand the engineering field better and gain experience in new software and new processes that I learned about in college but now I get to use them in real life situations. I also look forward to helping the company and do tasks that will help the engineer’s workload and relieve their stress. I also look forward to making connections in the engineering field to boost my resume and make myself more marketable by gaining experience and problem solving and communication skills
