Most of the companies that come to campus that I’m interested in working at start their internships/co-ops at the Sophomore level. So this was the first that many of the companies took me seriously. Armed with my new resume, I put on my Sunday best and ventured over to the field house.
I targeted the same companies that I’ve targeted in the past: Lockheed-Martin, Northrop-Grumman, Missile Defense Agency, ATK, Puget Sound Naval Ship Yard, and Raytheon.
Raytheon and ATK seemed to take a particular interest in my background, especial the work I did for my Senior Project at the University of Washington. ATK took down my availability for an on-campus interview and the Raytheon person I was talking with pulled in another guy because of the interest in Command and Control systems.
PSNSY was also interesting because if I get into their co-op program they will pay for my college for every year that I work their after I graduate. However, it is a civian job so it doesn’t have all the issues with joining the Army. Hmm.
In any event, I’m still looking for a shadowing opportunity at Lockheed-Martin, so any inside help would be nice.0
