You will hear from some of Boeing’s Summer 2019 Core Plus Aerospace interns and workforce development staff about how the internship experience works and what students get from it.
“The Core Plus Aerospace internship is a valuable experience for students because they really learn what it’s like to work in a manufacturing environment,” said Essentia Rivera, Senior Workforce Specialist at Boeing. “The first three weeks, students spend developing hands-on mechanical, electrical, and sealant skills. The final two weeks, they learn employability skills through mock interviews and resume reviews.”
Halima Abdikarani, 2019 intern from Puget Sound Skills Center, said the internship made her feel great because she improved her hands-on and professional skills over the summer.
