On November 29th, Cabrillo Makerspace interns visited the headquarters of Plantronics, a leading producer of commercial and personal headsets. The purpose of the visit was to expose Cabrillo interns to a real world work environment. It also gave the students a rare chance to speak to the engineers, industrial designers and marketing managers about their jobs and the various skills needed to work there. Following a tasty lunch, Cabrillo students spoke to several Plantronic employees who began their employment out as interns.
Kudso to Courtney Cogan of Goodwill Central Coast who arranged for the Plantronics visit. Courtney serves as a liaison between Cabrillo ‘s Makerspace Intern program and local businesses.
