Career Expo

The Career Expo took place on Oct 2 from 9AM to 3PM at the Activity Center. This was my first time at the career expo. All major companies like Honeywell Aerospace, Boeing, General Atomics, Hawker Beechcraft, Northop Grumman etc. were present here. Almost every company had presentations the previous day and all the students were invited to be a part of it.
I did attend the presentations of Honeywell Aerospace, GE Aviation, Hawker Beechcraft, Center for Space Nuclear Research and US Space and Rocket Center. The presentations basically included an overview of the company and their products. Some also detailed out the specifications/requirements for the internship program. There was free food and lots of cool stuff to grab, obviously.
Career Expo basically was a platform to know about a company, or to let a company how interested you are to be a part of the company after you graduate. It is a great experience for a freshman as it allows one to get a basic idea of what kind of graduates are companies looking for and which companies will suit your needs. You get to know what kind of work you will be doing if you are in Avionics, Structures or Aerodynamics Department of a company. It really made me think about what I want my next 4(or 3) years to be like.
The Rotorway also had a full size helicopter at display during the Expo. GE Aviation gave out lots of squishy aircrafts. AeroVironment gave out balsa wood gliders. Northrop Grumman gave out light pens, computer bluffs that are actually great-Benefits of going to the Career Expo!
I am surely looking forward to make my resume look much better the next time and am all geared up for getting an internship in the 2nd summer.
