External job announcement (internal applicants welcome)

Position: Mechanical engineering design team member

Program: Corporation-wide

Reports to: Mechanical engineering design team leader

Classification: Unpaid internship

Organization overview:

Founded in the philosophical works of the distinguished Prof. Richard Buckminster Fuller, original designer of Tokyo Tower (among many, many other things) the mission of the Tokyo Global Engineering Corporation Charitable Trust (“TGECCT”) is to apply currently accepted scientific principles to the design of projects that cannot be implemented until the emergence of a global state.  Headquartered in the East Azabu neighborhood of Tokyo, TGECCT has volunteers around the world, with well-educated persons, such as university professors, as the organization’s advisors, and learners, such as university students, as the participants.  None are remunerated, nor do they feign unremunerative intent.

TGECCT has two divisions, and two corporate boards: the Operations Division and the Support Division, and the Board of Investors and the Board of Advisors.  Within the Operations Division exist the following departments: Bioengineering, Nanoengineering, Civil Engineering, Space Engineering, Global Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Environmental Engineering.  Within the Support Division are the following bureaus: Art, Business Development, Communication, Diversity, Econometrics, Editing, Finance, General Counsel, Grants, Health, Human Resources, Information, Innovation, Knowledge, Networking, Philanthropy, Procurement, Reputation, Scheduling, Strategy, Threat Analysis, Translation, and Workforce Education.

Position overview:

TGECCT seeks an opportunity to add a student of mechanical engineering to its mechanical engineering design team.  Mechanical engineering students that are seeking to complete an internship as a capstone requirement for an academic degree program should apply to complete the requirement via TGECCT.  No travel is required; however, university students seeking internship placement in Tokyo have some options available to them, pending approval from universities assigning grades.

Knowledge, skills, and abilities:

The ideal candidate will possess exceptional skills in mechanical engineering, and equally outstanding oral and written communication skills.  The ideal candidate will have the following additional experience and attributes:

  • Undergraduate degree preferred (or near completion); graduate degree strongly desired (or near completion)
  • Experience contributing to an engineering design team
  • Intense desire to lead and innovate
  • Demonstrated ability to build, supervise, and motivate teams and individuals in a collaborative manner
  • Supervisory experience strongly preferred
  • Remarkable technological savvy, with outstanding computer skills

To apply:  

Please complete a TGECCT Form 9, Application for Design-Team Enrollment, which can be obtained from TGECCT’s Human Resources Branch at the e-mail address featured on the “Careers” webpage.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.  TGECCT offers this position as a highly competitive unpaid internship.  TGECCT does not discriminate against applicants on the basis of anything that otherwise lands the worst of corporations in court, and prides itself in its pointedly anti-discriminatory policies, while demanding the same of all its internship participants.  All persons that believe themselves capable of performing all of the tasks outlined in this announcement should apply without delay.

Screening process:

Qualified applicants will be evaluated by the TGECCT Human Resources Branch’s rating panel to determine the most qualified applicants and will be based upon the degree to which qualified applicants meet the preferred qualifications.
