Sierra Nevada Corporation Sparks, NV

About the Job

Come start your career with some of the brightest and most innovative minds in the country. Get your hands on actual projects and at the same time, prepare for a truly awesome career in aerospace and defense. This is not your parent’s co-op – you won’t be getting coffee and ordering lunch. Our Co-ops have the unique experience of getting both mentoring and coaching while working side by side with recognized industry experts on real-world assignments directly related to their field of study. Bring your knowledge and desire to learn, and we will provide the experience. Co-op’s are full time, 40 hour a week commitments and typically span an entire semester, with the possibility of starting the summer before (Fall Co-op) or extending into the summer after (Spring Co-op). Depending on satisfactory completion of certain criteria during your internship, you may be considered for a full-time position upon graduation. As a Co-op, you'll ask questions, get involved, bring your ideas, be part of an actual project team, attend planning meetings, complete assignments as tasked by your team, absorb and learn from your team and apply that learning to projects assigned. You'll have the opportunity to learn fundamental business processes and procedures, build your technical foundation through practice and mentorship, and participate in an in-depth program built by our University Recruiting team, that includes cross-functional workshops and meeting with leadership to gain understanding of the business and our culture.
