Today we say thank you and goodbye to our Honeywell Summer Interns who have been with us for the past 12 weeks busy working on projects, sales contracts and coding in our software centre.
This year we hired 15 interns across Australia and New Zealand, providing these Future Shapers with real life exposure to working life as young engineers.

What did you learn over the summer: The summer was great, it helped me build my confidence in myself, the ability to deal with lots of types of people in the workplace and try and influence them. I also really enjoyed my time out of the office at site, seeing how we deliver projects and getting to do some engineering problem solving work. It has made me get a better understanding of the type of career I want as engineer.
What you most proud of over the summer: I was working on a project with a Tier 1 client and was asked by the projects manager to create a few drawing in CAD on site to help with the engineering requirements of the upgrades we were doing. It was really cool to see the work I did being used by the team and the client, this made me feel really proud and that I had contributed value to the project.
As we say goodbye we wish all out interns the best of luck as they transition back into university and continue on their journey.
We are excited that we will be hiring interns again for the 2020/2021 summer – keep an eye out for roles when they become available from July/August.
