Prompt: Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences in the space below or on an attached sheet (150 words or less).
And also I am a little over the word limit. Any advice?
"This is the PTB-3150-MV. This is the PFA-250-RG." The first day of my internship at XXXX. Already overwhelmed by the complex names of the power supply models, I am immediately given the task of completing a modification record of the PTB-3150-MV power supply. My mentor walks me through the steps. I proudly hand over the finished record to my mentor, who scans over it and hands it back to me. Oops. I forgot to write down the quantity. Sheepishly, I slowly write down the number 12, double-checking to make sure everything is right. This time, I receive a simple, yet satisfying, pat on the back.
I look up at the clock, and it is 5:00. As I prepare to head home, I realize that 8 hours of any work, whether plucking at wires or filling out paperwork, is truly exhausting. I suddenly think of my dad, who will also be heading home at this time. Though I have finished my internship this summer, I continue to appreciate and admire my dad for the effort and optimism he puts into his job.
