Why You Should Get a Summer Internship

Why You Should Get a Summer Internship | Senior Seminar Project (Internships) | Scoop.it
Despite the controversy surrounding unpaid internships, the advantages for students are many.
Connor's insight:

I love this article and it defines why students need and want interships. It allows for us to try out our field and be risky and try new things without setbacks. We gain valauble work knowledge and we learn how to apply skills leanred in the classroom to the workplace. It allows for students to decide if they want to go down certain paths. Most importantly is it allows for students to start networking and put their foot in the foor or create a advatange over other students coming out of college in the competative engineering world. If your a student and havent thought about a internship then this article may be the thing that either gets you thinking about it or changes your mind.

It gives some basic advice for every interview, but a internship interview is not much different from any other interview. Some advice like how to dress, make sure your paperwork is all completed for your internship process, how to physicallly approach your interviewer, etc. Overall something good to look over before you go in for interview for your employer if they call you in or a interview is required to apply.

Seattle Aerospace Engineering Internships

From EngineerJobs.com, the world's most-visited engineering job site, find every aerospace engineering job available in Seattle without having to register.
Connor's insight:

This website offers a source to finding internships throughout the greater seattle area in the field of areospace. Most of the internships on the website work through Boeing though because they are the only ones that post public internships in the area. If you are looking for a Boeing interhsip this is a great site for that, but in the general field there is a lot of private companies in the greater seattle area that you are able to get interships from. This is only a small section of the pie.

My Thoughts:
Although I cannot apply to a job through this site, I can find engineering jobs around my area with no cost. There are multiple sources not just Boeing I can look at, this helps/ stabilizes my thought that there are more opportunities out there. There are specific options out there that there is to choose from, such as location, groups and jobs. Once you click on the desired jobs search, you can look through the descriptions and read more to find out if it’s the right fit. It also gives general, technical and other information about that job.

LiftPort Group

LiftPort Group | Senior Seminar Project (Internships) | Scoop.it
Connor's insight:

The Liftport group is my main option i'm looking to intership for. They are a private areospace company looking at creating the first lunar space elevator. This idea is revolutionary and will change humanity when completed. I met the president of the company at the International Space Elevator Consortium and after talking to him and getting his buisness card I will probably contact him about a possible intership. They are small so they don't offer paid internships, but none the less I could use it to gain experience in the field and the company's work is literally out of this world and offers many oppurtunities in the future.
