Internships are a great way to experience and communicate with professionals in the career that students take interest in. Raisbeck Aviation High School has the special opportunity to offer internships from many different jobs to its students.

 

Students that have gotten internships with Boeing enjoy and love the experience sometimes even want to do it again. Vladimir Nazarov shares his insight on his experience with Boeing internships. For Vlad it was a very enjoyable experience for him and it has deepened his image of the Boeing company and his future career.

 

“With the internship at Boeing, it was a eye opening experience to a large company such as Boeing and team work and a lot of organization because it’s such a big company as well as a lot of safety precautions,” said Nazarov. “especially on a factory level there’s a lot of people working a lot of moving parts, a lot of big parts that all create a risk factor and there’s a high safety attention at Boeing, thats what i noticed.”

 

This definitely builds some excitement and self awareness when on the job site and adds on to the awesome experience that the internship will offer.

 

When going on the job site it will expose the student to different job opportunities that boeing offers such as Nazarov.

 

“there’s so many divisions within Boeing that you could pursue,” said Nazarov.” i mean just about anything you could find there, and everyone is willing to work for you at the Boeing company.”

 

An addition to the process of getting more information on the different divisions it also exposes you to the friendly community and employees that are at the Boeing job site. This is always important because a student doesn’t want to spend time around a negative community that will make them uncomfortable and not want to be there.

 

In addition to the process of getting more information you also get yourself some pride and confidence and say stuff that some people older than the student don’t get to say like what Nazarov explains.

 

“To say that i was an intern for Boeing as a high school intern, it is a really powerful statement not even college students can say that and, i mean its really lucky, i’m really lucky to have that kind of experience,” said Nazarov. “and it’s changed my resumé, it’s changed my experience and changed my outlook for future job opportunities within Boeing.”

 

To say that you have been an intern with one of the biggest aircraft manufacturers gives you a lot of honor and it’s just one of the many special opportunities that RAHS has to offer. It also increases your chances at getting a job or getting accepted to a University because who doesn’t want someone in their job or college that has been an intern for Boeing?

RAHS has been offering Boeing internships for a couple years now.It shows a lot of respect and trust when such a large company provides internships to school and Mr, Davolt shared his insight.

 

“ It recognizes both the students,” said Mr, Davolt. “as well as the quality of the education that students receive here.”

 

“Last year there were 14,” said Mr, Davolt. “and we had about 95 kids that applied to that position.”

 

With these chances you have to make sure that your application stands out from others, in a good way.

 

“You want to make a cover letter that makes sense,” said Mr, Davolt. “And that is well done.”

 

This will increase your chances of landing the internships.

 

“ Secondly, be open to whichever position becomes available,” said Mr. Davolt. “so look carefully at what sounds interesting and then work to make sure that your application is tailored to those applications.”

 

So you have to find something you’re really passionate about and then work your way towards getting that internship.

 

In 2013 Boeing started providing internships for RAHS and has been ever since. “About four years ago, and they start out by offering two or three,” said Mr.Davolt. “And then it got a little bit more the next year, and then last year we got fourteen.”  

 

So by looking at this, maybe RAHS can see an increase in the number of internships provided by Boeing.
