In a week or so, my school is hosting an 'expo' wherein dozens of companies will descend and begin to recruit engineering students for internships. I'm interested in getting one over the summer, but I'm hoping I can get some feedback and advice from PF first. The biggest challenge I can foresee is that I have absolutely no work experience. I've never even gotten a burger flipping job. There are a lot of reasons for this, but none that I'd be able to explain through a cover letter/resume. Does this completely kill my chances at an internship? Another is that I haven't completed any design courses yet. My current courses are statics, intro to programming, diff eq's, intro to aerospace engineering, and an engineering communications class. Next semester will be similar: dynamics, thermodynamics, slightly-more-advanced programming, vector calc, and mechanics of solids (deformations, etc). And clearly I haven't completed any of these, so how can I sell myself as an engineering intern when I haven't demonstrated success in engineering? Not to say I haven't demonstrated the ability to work physics problems, but physics is not engineering. Quite frankly, my resume is crap-on-a-stick at this point, and I'm wondering as to the futility of even attending the expo. Any advice - any - would be greatly appreciated.
