Intern II

June 2023 - August 2023 San Diego, CA
“I loved the environment, intern cohort, and mentorship availability.”

Intern II - Airport Planning

June 2019 - August 2019 San Diego, CA
“Above all, I really enjoyed what I did. Over the course of a summer, I got to do a variety of tasks that introduced me to the various aspects of what an airport planner would do in their job. In addition, I liked being in charge of a group project and the opportunities to work with the other interns. I also enjoyed the atmosphere and work culture, everyone seemed happy and energized. Being able to work at an airport and see aircraft all the time was something I also liked. The intern program featured occasional tours of the airport, introducing us to different facets of the airport and the careers that went along with them. ”
