On April 11th, Spirit Cultural Exchange staff traveled to Mexico City to host an Engineering Interview Day. Along with staff from thyssenkrupp North America Inc and support from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, over 30 candidates listened to alumni presentations, learned about available positions, and discussed the J-1 program.

During their presentation, Spirit Engineering Program alumni spoke about how they developed new professional skills during their time in the U.S. while also becoming part of their community. Alumni spoke about the different holidays they celebrated, female-led engineering groups they joined, new friends they made, and amazing travel they enjoyed. Professionally, the alumni showcased some of the amazing machines and technology they were able to experience and about how they had gained advanced training during their time in the U.S.

After attending the presentations, candidates had the opportunity to speak with Spirit staff and a representative from thyssenkrupp North America Inc regarding available opportunities. Candidates learned about J-1 Internship program requirements, the visa application process, the components of the available positions, and were able to ask questions.

Spirit staff enjoyed the opportunity to see our alumni discussing their experience. It is always exciting for us to hear about what Interns learned and enjoyed during their time in the U.S.!
