What does your position at The Boeing Company entail?

I manage projects related to Quality Improvement for the 737 Airplane Program.

How were you selected to become a recruiter for The Boeing Company?

Mark Lyden, lead recruiter for The Boeing Company, gave me the tools and opportunities to join Boeing, so one of my main priorities was to join the ERAU recruiting team and bring more students to Boeing, as a way to thank Mark Lyden and ERAU for the dream come true event that happened in my life.

As a Boeing Recruiter, what are some of the biggest mistakes you have seen ERAU students make when seeking work at The Boeing Company?

One of the mistakes is that students only apply for opportunities during company visits or career events. Managers post jobs and internships based on their availability of free time to do so, so you should continuously seek out and apply for openings.

What advice do you have for students and alumni seeking work at The Boeing Company?

BE PATIENT AND APPLY, APPLY, APPLY!!!!!!!! Our system is very slow, so please be patient. Also, you need to be applying to 50 jobs or more; just because you get turned down from one job does not mean that you will automatically be disqualified for the other 49.
