Overview of the internship/coop objectives:
The intern will be heavily involved in internet research, entering information into our database, and posting information and/or video to certain websites. At that same time, they will gain valuable insight to Supply Chain and/or Recruiting as a profession.

Most of the duties and responsibilities of the intern will be based from our computer database. The student will assist the Office Manager with ongoing database maintenance tasks, helping to make our database efficient and profitable. He/she will be responsible for use of websites
such as Linkedin (a professional networking site), Indeed and Monster to search for possible companies and candidates, and heavy use of search engines like Google, to research missing contact information. Also the intern will assist in posting information and videos to certain sites,
and possibly have part in redesigning our website, based on the intern's knowledge of web design. As the intern becomes more comfortable with our business, and based upon their potential interest, the opportunity will exist to interact with supply chain professionals throughout the country.

What will the student learn from this experience?

The student will get a good understanding of both the Supply Chain and Consumer Goods industries. This position will help to better the student's organizational and research skills, and knowledge of Microsoft Applications. The intern will also get an in-depth look into the professional world. As we help supply chain professionals take their careers to the next level, the intern will learn the ins and outs of the job searching / interviewing process – giving them a much better understanding of exactly what employers are looking for. This internship
can be a great stepping stone into their own career.
