Engineering Internship Testimonial from Jicku

Engineering intern Jicku from the University of Wollongong.

“Most entry-level jobs for recent graduates require a form of experience. With the help of Career DC, I was able to obtain an internship program with a solar company in Canberra, even though this was not primarily my field of study. During those three months, I was blessed to have a mentor who helped me understand what it means to be a renewable engineer and an engineering manager. The internship helped me realize the importance of networking and knowledge of what being an engineer is like in the real world and at the end of the internship, I was absorbed into the company. Fast forward 3 years, and I am working as a project engineer in a fast-growing solar company in Canberra itself.”
