Summary of Internship

As a records auditor, my position in the facility is given detail oriented responsibilities. On the first day, I was expecting something more diverse. I assumed this internship was all about learning to fly aircraft and attending specialized ground school classes. When I arrived in the records department, I was assigned with a personal desk and computer. The IT team assigned me an email address in order to communicate with other co-workers and representatives. I was taught to carefully audit Federal Aviation Administration (U.S.) and Joint Aviation Authority (Europe) records for various pilots and flight attendants. The plentiful task that has to be followed for auditing is very intricate, and it was my responsibility to interpret this system in a hasty pace. My goal at this internship is to be able to start up, take off, maintain, and land an aircraft with my own self-determination. As I would enter college in an engineering field, I would like obtain broadened experience and knowledge in technology and different perspectives of engineering in advance. This internship provides with countless sources and superior-beings in which I can utilize to expand my conception. Being able to have an internship in high school really gives one not only an advantage, but also more hands-on experience than others. Throughout my internship, I had a wonderful experience spending time with my co-workers in the department and my mentor. I have had the chance to take ground school classes among others and to spend a great amount of time learning how to fly and initiate emergency procedures in an aircraft. Every week, I learn something new not only about aviation training, but also about the general corporate world.
