Engineering a Career
My first experience with TT Electronics was in the summer of 2017 as an engineering intern, just after my Junior year of college. While I had learned a lot regarding electronics and their theory in my curriculum, I did not have much experience on the application side, especially the manufacturing aspects. Initially, I had seen a “Now Hiring” sign up the road from the facility, and I stopped in and asked about any opportunities for internships there may have been. Before I knew it, we had scheduled the interview process for soon after.
That summer, I had spent half my time working for two different engineering departments, allowing for me to gain experience in multiple different environments and focuses. I enjoyed having varied work that would also keep me engaged, as well as continually learning. I felt that my time at TT in the summer of 2017 really gave me a very positive impression of the facility, as well as the manufacturing processes of electronics.
The following summer I contacted the company again to apply once more for an internship and was asked to return. As I was already now much more familiar with the facility, this internship had added responsibilities, and was even more challenging and engaging. I was really gaining the sense that my contributions were improving the shop’s processes. At the end of that summer, I was offered a full-time position and accepted it, and have been working here ever since!
The internship process was a very welcoming and educational experience that I am extremely thankful for. I did not have a lot of knowledge on the specific field that the positions were for, but I was able to learn very quickly during the process. The last three years have seemed to have gone by so quickly, and I look forward to the coming years!
