I woke up Friday morning thinking about preparing for a giant storm to hit Seattle while also planning to hand deliver a few of my wind prototypes to a large ballroom at the University of Washington for a career day event. They were expecting two to three hundred students to show up with resumes in hand, however I was told that more than 500 students came through to apply for summer internships at almost two dozen companies.
I was honored to be in the presence of recruiters from large companies such as Boeing, Microsoft, and the US Navy, but even more honored to be handed almost a hundred resumes from some of the most ambitious electrical and aeronautical engineering students I've ever met. Most of them already studied my website and had some great questions thought up inquiring about me and the future of Pterofin, Inc.
Needless to say I had a few incredible discussions with some very eager students who wanted to spend their time interning and helping develop Pterofin technology. Some of them were extremely passionate about the usefulness of the technology which helps deliver clean drinking water to populations who fight that battle day after day and year after year. Other students were very animated and passionate about the physics behind Pterofin technology, and how they'd absolutely love to be a part of my team doing R&D.
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about meeting some of the future leaders in technology, taking such an active interest in clean energy and playing their part to not only help save our environment, but also save lives on a global scale. I'd like to think they're all keeping their fingers crossed and hoping I'll get back to them before the fist day of their summer vacation, as I think that's how long it might take me to go through the stack of resumes and make my decision.
