What I liked
My role at Nexteer seemed simple and rather small scale. However, that was not the case.
A little bit about me: I am a Computer Science major, and Graphic Design minor. I figured that having the front-end design experience as well as back-end experience would leverage me about other candidates for any type of software job in the future. But, the switch to CS was mainly due to having the ability to create anything I could imagine. That's the beauty of CS.
My role at Nexteer included working in the Quality department under the Global Quality Manager. My tasks were to update and develop training materials used by all employees in Nexteer. Also working on their front-end system for their quality page has proved to be quite the learning experience.
The internship overall was amazing. Although the meetings and work was impactful, fun, and intriguing, my favorite part would have to be the breakfast buffets and the lunch buffets. Every day you get to go to breakfast and grab anything you could image, afterwords you can go get any type of coffee, hot chocolate, french vanilla, anything you could imagine was in that machine.
Aside from the amazing food I got to work with the best group of people. My boss took me under his wing and introduced me to the corporate working life. There are plenty of corporate jobs out there in the world though, however, it is important to me to pick one that has an impact on everyday life. Nexteer Automotive works on steering columns as well as an abundance of other products. One of the best parts was getting a close up view of their autonomous driving in the works.
Aside from all of the food and meaningful work, the relationships I've built with individuals at Nexteer are relationships to last me a lifetime.
