The featured student this week is Cassandra Finney, a chemical and biomolecular engineering student from Clarksville, Tennessee, who worked as a co-op student at Exxon Mobil Chemical Plant.
In reporting on her rotation, Finney specifically worked in the technical department where they produce Santoprene. She was able to interact with all departments in the plant and gained a variety of different experiences.
Many projects were beyond her knowledge, but she was able to ask questions and take them one step at a time and accomplish them. A major lesson she gained from her co-op experience was that communications and business relationships with people are key for success.
