Say goodbye to using a firm handshake, direct eye contact, and polished business suit to capture potential employers’ attention. Say hello to presenting yourself via chat rooms, email, and even instant messaging. College career fairs have gone virtual. Welcome to searching for a job during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here at DISTek, we place a strong emphasis on our internship program. Every summer we hire a handful of interns to work alongside our teams to not only provide mentor-ship for those entering the field, but also to, hopefully, entice some of the best and brightest to join our ranks after graduation. This summer we were lucky enough to have David Schmadeke, an Electrical Engineering major at Iowa State University, join our internship program.
