ANDREE'S PICK: Functional Excellence (Engineering Rotational Development Program) at COBHAM

"From deep space to the depths of the ocean" -- that sounds so cool, right?!  

So check this out! Cobham is a leader in aerospace and defense systems, including things like satellite communications, defense electronics, air-to-air refueling, life support and mission equipment. Cobham was founded by a British innovator in the 1930s and today employs 11,000 people on 5 continents with customers and partners in 100+ countries. It's got that entrepreneurial spirit along with the resources of a large corporation that can truly make things happen.

This position is a 2-3 year rotational development program where you’ll work on varied projects across multiple disciplines and at different locations. That means you'll get exposure to all different kinds of work and you'll build relationships with employees throughout the business, while at the same time learning the technical and operational skills you need to be successful as an engineer. What a great way to start your career! Importantly, your focus can vary, based on your interests, but no matter the position, you'll get access to the most advanced tools and technologies available in some of the coolest markets, like space travel! 

If you're an engineering student, I suggest you apply for this today! And also consider searching Handshake for other "rotational development program's"; that's how I found this position and there are many others to consider as well.

The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour is a National Junior Golf Tour (HJGT) and was founded with the intention of providing junior golfers between the ages of 8-18 an opportunity to play exceptional courses in a competitive environment.

Over the past nine seasons the tour has grown at exponential proportions and has become the largest junior tour in the country. Wonderful news right!
