Mercedes McCarthy's mock resume.



My name is Mercedes McCarthy and I am in the freshman engineering program at NC State. I plan to major in mechanical engineering and my anticipated graduation date is May 2020. This date could change if I acquire an internship or co-op.

Why Mechanical Engineering?

I chose mechanical engineering for a number of reasons. I came into my freshman year thinking that I would major in biomedical engineering, but I soon realized that that was not the major for me. I chose mechanical engineering because it is such a broad field. I can still work for companies that hire biomedical engineers, but I can also work for larger companies that have less specified jobs. I hope to find out what exactly I want to do with my degree by gaining experience in jobs and internships before I graduate.
