Alaska Airlines

Technical Analyst Intern

June - August 2018 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

This was a fantastic experience that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in aviation, technology, or travel and is looking to get real, hands-on experience at a large corporation. From day one I was working on real projects that were important to the organization. There was no traditional 'intern' work of filing papers or getting coffee, I was able to autonomously work and contribute to the organization's bottom-line. In addition to being able to take ownership of a number of projects, Alaska as an organization makes an effort to give interns the opportunity to explore various facets of the business outside of their job description. Intern activities included collaboration and access to multiple members if the executive leadership team, a delivery flight for a brand new Boeing aircraft, and a VIP Boeing factory tour amongst many other things. Lastly, on weekends I was able to take advantage of employee flight benefits, traveling approximately 35,000 miles over the course of my summer.

What I wish was different

Nothing! I could not have asked for a better internship experience!

Advice

If you're going to work here, commit and jump all the way in! The people who got the most out of their experience took full advantage of all the opportunities presented to interns for their twelve weeks including extra-curricular events and travel.
