Hi, I'm Amethyst O'Connell, I am currently studying Electrical Engineering with a Sustainability Studies minor at the University of Minnesota. Why am I your perfect employee? Because I can write better than most Electrical Engineering majors. I'm a former volunteer writer for the Twin Cities Geek. My essay was Third Place in the Midwest Climate Summit's 2021 Climate Stories contest. If you need someone who can bridge the gap between the arts and engineering, I can do so with flair. I am also highly passionate about finding solutions to the climate crisis, and have a unique knowledge base in that area, having unusual expertise for an undergraduate in sustainable transportation, renewable grids, and community solar.
Current status: Seeking sustainability or Electrical Engineering career for December
Packed with all the office essentials, has a projector ever glitched out during a presentation? Amethyst can fix it. Being formally trained at Nine North's TV Studio in Studio Technology, Amethyst has a sophisticated understanding of AV technology which can save any engineering presentation.
Amethyst can use a wide variety of engineering technologies such as Altium Designer, Bentley Promis-e, Autodesk Inventor, and more!
Understands the engineering business, from patents to profits. Knows the role that engineers play in a larger business strategy.
Do you need technical writing? Documentation? Presentations? Do you need someone outside of the engineering space to understand what engineers do? Amethyst can do that.
Understands climate change, and emerging technologies in the sustainability field.
Has part time availablity during the school year, and will have full time availability starting upon graduation in December 2023, and is quick to onboard.
Amethyst was a great team member that really aided our project in several ways. Her attention to detail allowed us to fully understand the challenge and solution, and her hard work was evident in our final results. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to do electric vehicle research or production.Nathan Butler

I am so thrilled, so proud, but certainly not at all surprised to announce that 24 student leaders were elected and appointed to represent their peers at the statewide level. Congratulations, and thank you for your willingness to serve the students of Minnesota!Committees and Appointments and Opportunities, Oh My!, LeadMN
Congratulations to Hamdi Ahmed, Amethyst O’Connell and Celina Tragesser, recipients of the 2018 President’s Scholarship, one of Saint Paul College’s highest academic honors.

I was so jealous of my peers that I didn’t realize what a wonderful pig I had until it was too late. It’s quite ironic that Wilbur was named for the pig in Charlotte’s Web, a pig trying so hard to not be eaten, only to realize the value in who they are inside. We have one life to live, so why not be a pig in the suburbs? Embrace your differences, and cherish every opportunity life gives you.A Pig in the Suburbs: How I Found My Normal, Pearson Education
