What is your major? Mechanical Engineering

Where did you intern? What was your role there?
I was a product development engineering intern at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) this past summer.

How did you get your internship?
I attended the FIU Career Fair in 2019 where I met with a representative from FCA. He was friendly and asked me questions about my resume. At this point, I did not have much to talk about with respect to previous jobs and research. So instead, I spoke in detail about being a member of Engineers without Borders and my research on electric vehicles that I did for my Honors Innovation Project as a freshman. Later that day, I got a call from FCA for an interview the next morning. The interview consisted of about five questions in the situation, task, action, result (STAR) interview format. About two weeks later, I got an email for a job offer at FCA.
