The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

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.
