College Administrative Intern

June 2020 • San Diego, CA

Business Management Analyst

June - August 2020 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

The flexibility that the company offered as well as the meaningful work assignments and competitive pay.

What I wish was different

Working remotely due to COVID was unfortunate because I never had the chance to meet face to face with my colleagues and build more personal relationships.

Advice

Ask a lot of questions. The defense industry is like a foreign language because it is simply not taught to anyone outside of the business. You have to be ready and willing to always be learning and always ask questions to further your knowledge and understanding.

Vehicle Engineering Design Intern

May - July 2020 • Melbourne, FL

What I liked

Working at Northrop Grumman was an incredible and rewarding experience. I was fortunate enough to be able to complete my internship on site. I learned so much about the industry, engineering processes, and collaboration. I learned new software, and made a ton of connections networking. The people were super helpful and friendly.

What I wish was different

I decided to commute from Daytona Beach to Melbourne. I would not do that again. If the opportunity arises, I would definitely move for the summer. The drive is exhausting after awhile.

Advice

Be willing to learn as much as you can and don't be afraid to ask questions. No one expects you to have all the answers already.

Mechanical Engineering Intern

May - August 2020 • Roy, UT

What I liked

It was an enlightening experience to be surrounded by a diverse group of engineers in a professional setting. There were employees who had worked in the industry for over 50 years, and there were employees who had been in the industry for 5 years and all of them were able to offer valuable advice.

What I wish was different

I wish I had received my security clearance prior to my start date. I was still able to complete a fair amount of work without it, but my tasking was limited due to security protocol.

Advice

Northrop Grumman is an amazing employer and I encourage anyone interested in STEM to pursue an internship/career with them.
