After four industry internships, some great experiences, and some hard lessons, Nita’s lectures helped crystallized my firsthand learnings into more concrete and universal principles. My Mechanical Engineering classes have helped prepare me well technically, but there are obviously many components required to thrive on a job. The ENGR 193 lecture on negotiating was especially helpful. I’ve always heard that “you should negotiate” about salary and other benefits, but never before heard how or why. I now understand the nuances better and feel more confident negotiating in the future. I’m going to miss Stanford, and classes like ENGR 193 are part of what made the experience amazing.
