How do I effectively use time off from school?
Dear Mrs. Louis, I want to be an engineer. So far I am really interested in civil engineering. I have already completed one year of college but this past fall I had to take the year off because my parents are having some financial difficulty. While I am out of school I would like to shadow some civil engineers, gain a lot of experience, and take part in research. I am a very motivated person who loves to learn. Since you have a lot of experience in the field what would you suggest me to do? Could you refer me to a great internship program? I really want to have more experience in the field while I am out of school. I would not mind relocating. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my message. Sincerely Anina
