How about instead of “going to work” you “came to fun”? Consider being an Intern at ZFX.

ZFX is a fast paced, creative, and just down right fun place where you will learn a lot in a short amount of time. Don’t be fooled, though. It’s as challenging as it is rewarding. Sell us on why you are the one for this opportunity, and you can intern in any department: Automation, Fabrication, Harnesses, Logistics, and of course Flying. 

Oh, and you get paid too. How cool is that?

Summer internships are six weeks long, cycling through each ZFX department.

Fall and Spring internships are more intensive, focused on a single department. 

Think you’re special? Prove it. Send an application today!

Applications are accepted year-round. Most summer and fall applications are reviewed in early March with optional face-to-face interviews at USITT. All you need to do is send the following to

1-      A heartfelt letter about why you want to intern at ZFX. Show some character and your personality. Use your imagination — we want to get to know you! 

2-      Your resume and don’t put anything on it that you can’t do the minute you walk in the door.  If you list “welding” then we expect you can lay a bead and adjust all those fancy knobs on the front of the machine.  We are more concerned about what you want to learn than you exaggerating what you already know.

3-      List what you have of the four “A’s”: AttitudeArtistryAptitude, and Ambition (wait, does that count as five A’s?).

Attitude means of course the right attitude. Tell us how you’re easy to get along with and how well you play with others.

Artistry is your creativity. It doesn’t’ have to be in singing, dancing, or painting. Every facet of the company requires an artist’s passion and creativity.

Aptitude is not about what you already know, it’s about how much you can learn.  Tell us how you adapt and learn quickly.  Examples are a great way to demonstrate.

Ambition means we want to know what lofty goals you have in life and more importantly how you plan on achieving them.  We don’t want this opportunity to go to waste.

Although an internship at ZFX does not guarantee a job, it does guarantee a life experience. Join us!
