Meet a Leidos Summer Intern: Jabari
Jabari has two months of internship experience under his belt and Leidos’ Power Delivery Solutions team cannot reiterate how excellent he has been since day one. Jabari is a part-time student instructor and a National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) student participant at North Carolina A&T; but despite his busy schedule, he has been a super engaged and attentive summer intern. He is a team player off and, on the field (read more below on that) and we are confident that he will use his Power Delivery internship and Mechanical Engineering degree to change the world.
Check out what Jabari has to say about his summer internship experience so far.
Where do you go to school and what are you majoring in?
I am a sophomore at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, and I am majoring in Mechanical Engineering.
You're a Leidos summer intern. Are you doing this in-person, hybrid or virtually?
I work in-person at the Charlotte office.
Tell us about your internship experience so far.
My internship experience so far has been tremendous! I am learning about the electrical industry- specifically the fundamentals and the technical skills of designing for Power Delivery Solutions.
What made you decide to apply for a Leidos internship?
I wanted to get work experience, and this was the best place to start my foundation due to the educational and supportive environment Leidos provides.
How will a Leidos internship help you meet your academic and career goals?
Leidos is providing a base that will help me better understand new concepts that I will encounter during my remaining academic years. I've also gained mentors that will give me the support and knowledge I will need to have a successful career.
Besides the internship, what else are you up to this summer?
I am taking summer classes and playing soccer in a tournament with my Leidos coworkers. I am the only intern on the team but other interns come and support us at the games. We are still working on our first win, but the memories and friendships I have made are worth the losses!
At Leidos, whether you join for a summer internship or sign on as a co-op during the academic year, you will have the unique opportunity to work directly with a team on critical projects, either at a Leidos facility or on a customer site.
