Innovate for Maine Spotlight: Fred Knight and His Internship

...For Fred Knight, that meant working for the Cooperative Center for Aquaculture Research at the University of Maine: immediately contributing to engineering system projects and leveraging his undergraduate education in the workplace. By the end of the summer, Fred had accumulated an entire binder of the work he had completed and the projects he had been a part of, an item that helped him make memorable impressions in two different job interviews that fall.

“Right in the binder was an overview of the systems I had designed, along with comments, calculations and a bunch of pictures,” Fred said. “It gave me something to talk about for 15 to 20 minutes in each interview.”

And in the end, the employers were impressed, Fred said. He ended up receiving two job offers from two interviews, and will be working for General Dynamics Systems in Massachusetts as a systems and a rotation engineer after graduation in May. More specifically, he’ll be participating in their engineering leadership program, which will have him train to be a manager in their business. In this program, Fred will have opportunities to work full-time, internal leadership training, and also earn an engineering graduate degree. ... nternship/
