Last October, I applied for a summer internship at Boeing and was accepted later that month. By the middle of Fall Quarter, I already knew my plans for the next year. Now, as Spring Quarter comes to a close, it seems almost unreal that in just a few weeks I’ll actually be walking into the Renton offices and starting my job for the next three months.
I’m extremely excited for what Boeing has in store for me. The managers have been taking classes to learn how to optimize their intern’s experience, and this year all of the interns will have desks on the same floor. It will be fun to meet other business students from around the country who have come here to work. I also haven’t met my manager yet, so I’m looking forward to introducing myself, finding out his role in Boeing’s marketing and communications, and getting my first assignment.
Although I’m sure working at Boeing will be both challenging and rewarding, I also have to take summer classes at night. I’m working on completing a degree in Digital Design in addition to studying Marketing at Albers, and the added work load has kept me extremely busy. Hopefully I will still have some time to relax and rejuvenate myself for senior year!
