Recently Elon Musk personally hires two Newfoundland interns who solved problems at Tesla Factory.
Mark Comeau and Matthew Lane studied engineering at the College of the North Atlantic and the Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John’s respectively and landed work placements at Tesla, which makes electric vehicles, battery packs and solar panels.
During the internship, Lane and Comeau saw a problem with the gating system on one of the production ramps at Gigafactory 1 and thought they might be able to do something about it.
Doing this, they made such a great impression on Elon Musk, that the tech magnet personally hired them to work for his company. Not everyone gets a chance to work with Musk’s company so easily neither does Musk personally calls the intern and offers them to work with him for his company.
Mark and Matthew did not just work for the sake of working or gaining some credit points at their internship but were passionate about what they were working on and was always willing to solve problems.
The two saw an opportunity to do something they weren’t necessarily assigned to be involved with, but which started them down the path to working with the company.
Every internship has something good for you. A work experience never goes in vain when you are actually willing to learn something and implement things you know. Have that eagerness to learn and contribute to the fullest, nothing goes in vain.
