When it comes to starting your career, students who have a well-rounded resume are rising to the top. Boeing helps students prepare for their future through their Business Intern Program, which allows talented college students to help shape the future of aerospace.
Jill Grable, a recent graduate of Purdue University, took part in this program and found the possibilities were both exciting and challenging. As a dual major in both Business Management and Aviation Technology, she expanded her business skills and matched them with her interests and hobbies in commercial aviation.
“During my internship with Boeing, I was given so many amazing opportunities to see and experience the products up close,” Jill shares. “I was brought up on the flight deck of the 747 and even had the chance to fly the 787 simulator with a group of interns.”
At Boeing, students have opportunities that go beyond a normal internship experience. They’re assigned to a specific project that meets their interests and skills. Students can also learn about a variety of areas and functions within the company through activities such as:
- Boeing Site Tours
- Community Involvement
- Executive meetings
- Networking Events
- Training Seminars
Boeing’s focus is to help motivated students gain a well-rounded, paid internship where they can work on real-world challenges and projects. Additionally, they offer opportunities to expand their knowledge in areas of the business that they may not have previously considered. The 12-week Boeing intern program really develops a variety of skills, so interns are prepared for a great career after college.
“I feel like my work made an impact here,” says Jill. “But it’s more than just the actual work itself. It’s about the overall effect the experience has on you. The development that I received for my career – and myself – was huge.”
Jill is now a full-time employee with the company, participating in the Business Career Foundation Program – an opportunity that presented itself during her internship with Boeing. She encourages interns to branch out and learn about all the resources available to them.
“There are endless opportunities as an intern at Boeing – you just need to seek out the possibilities. There’s really something for everyone.”
