• Fall (September – December)

In addition to the job descriptions (below), here are a few other details to note:
- Actual internship dates vary based on each individual intern and their school requirements.
- Along with exposure to Safety Programs, the positions include regular data entry and clerical work.
- Interns are expected to work normal business hours Monday – Friday weekly.
- All candidates must be legally able to work in the United States. We do not sponsor anyone due to the short period of employment.
- The intern has the ability to fly as a non-revenue passenger during the course of their internship which includes all flights within the American Airlines system.
- We do not provide housing assistance and each position requires the intern to supply their ground transportation as there is no available public transportation to either office.
