Since this is my first blog post since the start of my senior year, I thought I would fill you all in on all of the exciting things I got to do and experience this past summer.

I’ll start by filling you in on my internship with ABB. This was my second rotation working at ABB’s Cleveland office. Last summer I was in a systems engineering position, and this summer I was in a proposals engineering role. I worked closely with customers, account managers, and many other people throughout the company to put together proposals for around 32 different projects. These proposals define the scope of work of each particular project as well as what equipment the customer will be receiving.

It was amazing to apply what I had learned last summer as well as my technical and writing skills to make a difference for a company. It even ended in a full time job offer for after graduation! I am so excited to continue my career at ABB and see where it takes me.

I also did a lot of travelling this summer—something that has always been very important to me. I traveled to Nashville, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, as well as Carolina Beach with my family and friends. I saw so many new places and got to have so many different experiences.

I am very grateful for the amazing final summer that I had as a student. On to the real world next summer!
