Memorial Day in the U.S. traditionally kicks off summer activities, including Textron Aviation’s robust annual summer internship program.
Last week, interns from around the country met for orientation as they embarked on a new career at Textron Aviation. Between the organized college and high school programs, the company is hosting nearly 500 interns for two months of learning across all business areas.
Ron Draper, president & CEO, greeted the group with a dive into Textron Aviation’s history and product strategy and shared that one of his top priorities is creating a great culture. He shared two simple but effective guiding principles when asked for career advice: get along with people and work hard.
With a packed schedule and accelerated project assignments, interns have the chance to prove themselves over the summer months in their fields of expertise. Whether it is sales operations, industrial design, accounting or many other jobs within the company, the summer internship provides an on-the-job experience that draws interns in from all over the country to the greater Wichita area.
