Four from UAH’s College of Business Administration benefit from Boeing internships
Each summer, Boeing's Business Intern Program gives a handful of business students an enviable preview of what to expect after graduation with a three-month paid internship. Invariably included among them are students from The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), and this year was no different with four upperclassmen from the College of Business Administration accepting offers.
"Each local Boeing company site works with focus universities to find good young talent to come in as interns," says Lane Watts, Senior Manager of Financial Operations, Integrated Scheduling, and Employee Development at Boeing. "We continue to get a very high-performing field of young talent from the College of Business Administration at UAH."
Resumes were collected last fall via three avenues: college fairs, direct communication with the universities' deans, and Boeing's online employment system. "We're talking hundreds of resumes!" says Jack Kachelman, Senior Financial Analyst at Boeing. Once downselects were made in late September, candidates were called in for interviews in early October.
