What is a good internship for a Mechanical Engineering student who doesn't know what type of company they want to work for in the future after graduation, at this point in time?

I am currently a Mechanical Engineering student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and I am unsure of what type of job I want when I graduate. I am curious what a good company is to look at for a somewhat inexperienced engineering student. Where are some good places to look for internships in Mechanical Engineering? #internships #mechanical-engineering

Few websites to always keep your resume ready: Glassdoor, LinkedIn, and Ziprecruiter. Filter the job listings per your experience. If interested in summer jobs/internship, go to a few well known company and find out what job titles they use for summer internship and use them for job search on these websites. No internship is small. Just because your colleagues are getting into Google and SpaceX doesn’t mean you have to. Get your resume proofread, this will build connections. Actively check these recruiting websites and indulge in conversations to build external networks, beyond school and college. Make job search fun for yourself than an additional task every week.

Some good choices for doing an internship for researching your future career can be Automotive, mechanical, aerospace, or Infrastructure Engineering. You might do a bit of searching in these areas to see which is most appealing to your interests. The infrastructure we use for transportation is very important to the economics of the country as well as where we do business in the buildings. But maybe your sights are a little higher and want to see the world from a different perspective as in airplanes or from space. Within your lifetime all of these fields of choice will be important players.
