How do I get hired at Boeing?

I hear this question at least once or twice a day.  The answer is:
  • Be qualified - carefully read the job description and evaluate your past training and experience
  • Be pro-active - do not wait for someone to do the work for you
  • Make sure your resume shows that you can perform the work described in the position description - employers can't read your mind so use "key words"
  • Look for contractors who work with Boeing in addition to applying to Boeing itself
  • Check the ReadySC website for open application periods.
  • Post your resume on the Boeing Talent Network site.  This allows Boeing staff to search for qualified applicants for new positions that become available.
At the time of this posting, at least two of these contractors (Yoh Aerospace and CDI) are trying to fill over 100 positions at the Charleston plant.  Please contact the Student Employment office if you are interested.  There is a job description on the Career Connection system.
