Planning to stress renewable energy in my application for my 10 year plan (short term plan would be to get some experience in the consulting and/or manufacturing realms). My low undergraduate GPA is partially mitigated by the fact that it was Cornell University, majoring in mechanical engineering with a minor in civil engineering. Additionally, I helped with recruitment efforts at my job for three years, two of which I was the Recruiting Lead for Cornell. Outside of work, I like to rock-climb (10-12 hours a week). I am also a mentor within Clark for younger employees as a part of our mentorship program and have been for the last year and a half.
