How to increase chances of landing Internship as Mechanical Design Engineer?
I am finishing up my Masters in Mechanical Engineering in Ohio state. I am interested in getting a internship in Mechanical design filed. I have supporting experience of 3 years (Design Engineer + Project Management) from L&T limited (Larsen & Toubro limited) in India.
BTW I am International student and a woman engineer.
I started looking for jobs from last January but before anything pans out , COVID happened and most of job posting were cancelled. I started again from August for Spring 2021 internships opportunities now.
Thing is, so far I just got rejections and there is no progress for others yet. What do I do so that my chances would increase?
I recently gave Fundamentals of engineering Exam and now awaiting my EIT certification from board.
I have following skill set:
CAD: SolidWorks, CATIA V5, ProE/Creo, AutoCAD ( started learning UG-NX now since I need it for my Thesis)
Programming: C++/C, Python
Other: MATLAB, ANSYS workbench, Unity 3D (learning it now)
Know about: DFMEA, GD&T, Root cause analysis, FMEA
Six Sigma (Yellow belt)
What else should I do? What other skills should I learn? Certificates? Portfolio?
Any help is appreciated.
