The best part of my Boeing internship experience was the opportunities I had to network with other teammates and meet executives. I learned something from almost everyone, and even met teammates from other countries!

How will your internship experience at Boeing influence your future career?

My internship with Boeing has taught me some of the things I think I'll value in a future career, as well as what I want to be doing for now (software development). Given my interview for IT Career Foundation Program, I plan to return to Boeing!
