EWU accounting students visited Boeing in Everett, Washington, last month to learn about the ins and outs of the organization and how they can prepare themselves for the work environment.
Through a partnership between accounting faculty Jack Gambill, Boeing manager Greg Gambill ’91 and EWU Career Services, 17 accounting students received a personal tour of the facility, which is deemed the largest manufacturing building in the world.
Following the tour, students were able to ask questions of eight Boeing accounting and finance employees, receiving professional advice and their perspective on what it’s like to work at Boeing.
“One of the biggest benefits of this type of experience is that it gives students exposure to what a real work environment can be like and who they’re working with,” said Nate Bryant, employer relations manager in Career Services. “Having that interaction gives our students a better idea of what to expect and how to set themselves up for success.”
