Tell people about what you do here!

Post by Erlex » Fri Jan 22, 2010 10:44 am

I am sure this is pretty much assumed, but some of you that aren't in college yet may not even think about it. If you are going into any kind of engineering, make sure you put on your résumé the projects you have worked on and during a job interview, tell the interviewer about them. I just got a REALLY nice job as a researcher through the university and I am only a freshman. Normally only juniors, seniors, and graduate students get these positions and ill bet money that some of it had to do with my modding experience. During the interview he asked, "So whens the last time you tore something apart or built something?" So I told him about this site and some other stuff I have built and he was thoroughly impressed, and I know I haven't done half as good of work as some of you all. So to make a long story short; if you are looking for an engineering internship or some sort of other engineering type job, tell them what you have made!

Hi, my name's Squintus and I'm an alc- oh wait.

Right now, I'm in my second semester for civil engineering with a specialization in transportation. Admittedly, it has nothing to do with modding.

I'm a marine biology student, closest thing I do to modding is a small bit of programming in a population modelling module.

Yea, I get a good discount. Modern Warfare 2 new for $40. Free rentals, etc.
And yea. I'm a pretty good beatboxer. People like "love" me in town, sometimes its annoying.
