The Boeing Company

Mechanical Facilities Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Everett, WA

What I liked

I loved the atmosphere at the Boeing Company. Everyone that I worked with was so welcoming and encouraging me to explore the many aspects that Boeing has to offer. I felt very much a part of the company culture.

What I wish was different

I was assigned a project to work on with other interns that took up much of my time. I wish I could have spent more time learning from those in my department, to gain more of a technical skill set, rather than working with other interns and serving in less of an engineering role.

Advice

Be open minded with what opportunities may come along at Boeing, and expect a challenge!

Manufacturing Engineering Intern

May - August 2021 • Oklahoma City, OK

What I liked

Very open and communicative team within the company. Had a great time working different assignments/tasks/projects in a very positive learning environment. The Boeing Company offers many resources for interns and employees alike to grow their professional skills and technical expertise through workshops and lunch and learns.

What I wish was different

Can't wait till students have the opportunity to enjoy the magic of having an in person internship experience again. Nothing can top living in a new city and gaining new experiences in person.

Advice

Be open to anything when you step foot into The Boeing Company or any career path, the opportunities are there for you, all you need to do is reach for them.

Vulnerability Management Automation Intern

June - September 2018 • Bellevue, WA

What I liked

I got to interact with various teams and people, and was able to try and work on different tasks. My mentor and colleagues were also always eager to support and guide me.

What I wish was different

I wish that processes, especially to obtain certain equipment or software, could be faster.

Advice

It's important to reach out, whether you want to know more people, receive help on work, or to have more tasks to do. People are friendly and eager to help, but you have to be able to reach out and talk to them first.

Software Engineering Intern, Cabin & Network Applications Team

June - September 2021 • Everett, WA

What I liked

What I liked the most about my internship experience was the amount that I learned about connected a user-facing interface to backend structures. As an intern on the Cabin and Network Applications team, I: - constructed an Angular billing component for user-facing web service, enabling employees to retrieve and modify data (livestream hours and amount of data stored) of a new, in-flight cabin video monitoring service; - used Java and JavaScript, as well as HTML and CSS, to create a user interface for employees to search for a specific airline’s data; - implemented RESTful APIs in Java controller that I designed to retrieve data for the specified airline, from the backend; and - gained experience using build tools like Maven to build and update the web application with my additions

What I wish was different

I wish I had the chance to interact with other interns. I was the only intern on my team, so I primarily collaborated with my mentor, technical lead, and manager, all of whom were adults. Collaborating with other students would have given me the experience of developing solutions to challenges with someone who has had similar experiences as I did.

Advice

I would advise other interns to take full advantage of the knowledge that older team members have. Take time to sit down with other people on your team, not just your immediate mentor, to understand the path they took to get to their current position. This is very helpful as a Software Engineering intern, as there are so many lesser-known paths available to reach jobs in the industry.

What I liked

Advice

Make the most of your internship by taking on as many projects as you can and always say yes; you never know what will come of it.

Industrial Engineering Intern

May - August 2021 • Everett, WA

What I liked

Gaining professional experience, having a 1-on-1 mentor and project, getting to tour the company within my working hours, getting to have informational interviews with company employees, feeling connected to the company community.

What I wish was different

Not a priority, but would have been nice to have known my program department explicitly before arriving. Knew I was going to be in BCA Industrial Engineering but not the specific program.

Advice

Talk to everyone you can and ask them about their work. Keep a running document of the people you meet and their contact info. If your work is stationed in a cubicle, don't feel like you are obligated to be there all of the time. Get up and explore! The company genuinely likes to show their interns all that they can.

Structures Test Engineer Intern

June - August 2020 • Tukwila, WA

What I liked

My managers were very accommodating and great communicators. I worked virtually for two managers and felt like I was in person because my team and managers met with me regularly.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have been in person to do more testing.

Advice

Push yourself to find your dream job. Make sure the company is right for you not just someone else’s dream job. Also, accept that you will not come into any job knowing everything. Be eager to learn.

What I wish was different

Electrical Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • El Segundo, CA

What I liked

The Company's staff and engineers were very friendly and accommodating to us first time interns. They provided an environment that created good opportunities to learn and develop technical, leadership, and social skills that surely will help us in the years to come.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship was longer! There was so much to do and learn, but the 7 week timeline was just not enough to fit in everything I wanted to do.

Advice

Try and help out with a variety of projects on site to get a complete picture as to what the company does!
