Saying goodbye (for now) to the summer interns

Jumping 5September is here again, and another group of summer interns at San Diego International Airport has come and gone. In early August the interns had lunch with Airport Authority President and CEO Thella F. Bowens, who shared career advice and professional insights.

At the beginning of the summer the interns were given a group project:  Design and implement an Web page to promote the Airport Authority’s internship program among colleges, universities and the general public and provide future interns with useful information. Over the next two months, the interns worked with their advisers – Mike in Human Resources, Jon in Marketing and Dat in Internet Technology – to unveil a really awesome site.ryan

This year, the core team of Airport Authority employees responsible for the internship program – Carol and Michelle in Human Resources, fellow Ambassablogger Sjohnna in the Quieter Home Program and me – implemented some changes to the already “World Class” program . . . so next year is going to be even better! Remember to check the Airport Authority’s employment website starting in February 2010 for more information about the program.

Oh, and as a farewell gift, the 2009 summer interns produced this music video showing them in action at the airport:

  1. We sure had a fantastic group of interns this year. Not that I am biased, but I would say the Quieter Home Intern, Mark, was especially talented! We sure enjoyed having him as our intern.

  2. I agree with you Sjohnna. While I think all the interns the airport has had over the years have been amazing, there was something about this summer’s group that really impressed me, especially when they got together and bravely presented themselves and their achievements to all of us at the SAN-formation Meeting.

  3. What a great summer it was at the Airport! Everyone was great!

  4. &I will second Austin’s comment! Without a doubt, it was one of the most memorable and unbelievably remarkable summers ever granted to us. Your faith in our success means more than we can ever put into words. Thank you SDCRAA for your generous hospitality and continued support! It will always remain an honor :)
