Supply Chain Financial Analyst

May - August 2019 • Everett, WA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the fact that Boeing treated their interns as they would any other employees. As an intern, we were given meaningful work that had an impact on the bottom line. Personally, I had the opportunity as a financial analyst to work on various estimates on the 777X program.

What I wish was different

I wish I had prior experience/knowledge regarding the aerospace industry before my internship. There's a steep learning curve with all the vocabulary and abbreviations they expect you to know going into your internship.

Advice

Have an open mind going into an internship, ask lots of meaningful questions, and challenge yourself!

Software Engineer Intern

June - September 2019 • Seal Beach, CA

What I liked

Provided me with tasks that the team actually needed done and incorporated me into the Software Engineering team planning process. Actively asked if I needed anything and if I was enjoying my time. There were also many other interns to interact with.

What I wish was different

It was a pleasant experience overall so I wouldn't want anything to be different.

Advice

Most of the concepts and tools that you'll need to be successful will be taught at your job. Don't worry too much about not knowing everything.

June - September 2019 • Everett, WA

What I liked

The people I got to work with were fantastic. The projects were meaningful, interesting, and challenging. I got the chance to meet with people from all over the company. There were also lots of great intern events.

What I wish was different

Although the program is inclusive of all students. It's schedule is oriented towards semester school schedules which left most of august absent of any intern events.

Go in with an open mind and when you get there be an advocate for yourself. Take ownership on whatever you can and never waste your time.

Software Development Intern

May - August 2019 • Charleston, SC

What I liked

The location, the team I worked with, and the opportunities to work on real projects. In addition, the social and bonding events planned for interns were extremely fun and connected

What I wish was different

Transportation wasn't so difficult. Unfortunately, I had to pay for a rental car, which luckily came with a discount thanks to Boeing, but still, staying downtown caused some difficulties when getting to work due to the commute.

Advice

Don't let being an intern stop you from feeling confident and adequate. Pull your intern card and utilize any opportunity to work on any project and get as much experience as possible.

Cyber Secuity and Assesments Intern

May - August 2019 • Bellevue, WA

What I liked

I liked how they treat interns as full employees. My team was very helpful and nice.

What I wish was different

I wish there was an easier way to be dropped off by a spouse (the compound has armed guards at the entrance and you can only pass with a proper badge.

One piece of advice I would give is to ask questions. The people around you like when you ask questions and try to understand what's going on.

Systems Engineering Intern

May 2019 • Oklahoma City, OK

What I liked

The pay was great, and the people I worked with were very good. I had flexibility in what I wanted to work on, and had the opportunity to try different things. Overall, it was a favorable experience over any other place I've worked.

What I wish was different

The workload of the office I was originally assigned to wasn't sufficient to keep me busy when I showed up, and it wasn't the type of work I'd like to spend part of my career doing. I had to really network to find other jobs and find my own place with another team. I wish it would have been easier for me to jump into something, rather than spending half the summer trying to find my own way.

Advice

Get to know the people you work with, and use the opportunity to really figure out what you like and don't like. This will enable you to get a full-time position you know you'll be happy with. Working with a big company can be frustrating at times, but there are many benefits to offset it.

Production Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Everett, WA

What I liked

Loved the experience working with industry experts. There was lots of flexibility to explore areas of interest and my manager was really supportive in helping me work on meaningful projects. Really great experience!

What I wish was different

More communication about the post-internship process would have been helpful. I was not sure for a while if I would be receiving a return offer or not. Several factors contributed to this - all of which were outside my manager's control.

Advice

Use the opportunity to explore and find what you like. There is a lot of room to find your passions and interests, you just need to be proactive.

Manufacturing, Quality, and Safety Learning Solutions Intern

May - August 2019 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

It was a very supportive environment that put me in the drivers seat, allowing me to display my skills.

What I wish was different

N/A

Advice

Talk to as many people who work for the company as possible. I had roughly fifty reoccurring one-on-ones with people who ranged from managers to VPs. There was another intern who I had one-on-ones with that had over one-hundred biweekly tag-ups with Boeing employees. Needless to say, she was offered an opportunity to participate in one of Boeing's rotational programs and I fell short.
