I was just wondering if there are Boeing insiders who know if the commercial division of Boeing will be in a position to hire domestic entry-level mechanical/aerospace engineers over the next few months.
From my understanding, it seems that the 787 project, enormously successful as it is, is handled in near entirety by a handful of domestic subcontractors and a laundry list of European and Asian subcontracting divisions.
Perhaps the new 747-8 will fuel the need for domestic engineers? Or will this be another "order out" job?
I write this because I'm about 3/4 way through grad school and I'm just trying to come up with options before I graduate this summer. I've emailed human resources, but haven't gotten a reply for the past 8 weeks. The employment website is not very helpful either because it gives little info about the pace of hiring even as two major commercial projects are still ongoing. I can however, upload a resume... but I think it is too early to take such an action since I won't be available for employment until the summer. All I really need is info now... and for the life of me I can't get any.
