Internship: Southwest Michigan First

 

Summer internships for Southwest Michigan’s college and university students are heating up

KALAMAZOO, Michigan – Southwest Michigan’s college and university students should start thinking now about summer for all the right reasons! The Monroe-Brown Internship Program, a collaboration between Southwest Michigan First and the Monroe-Brown Foundation, has announced its 2015 internships offered by local companies to currently enrolled college students. This year’s 33 internship offerings at 26 companies include opportunities in engineering, health sciences, information technology, production planning, merchandising, architecture, interior design, human resources, marketing, sales and financial management.


Founded in 2006, the Monroe-Brown Internship Program provides interns with $3,000 in scholarship 
funding for college, an hourly wage paid by the employer and invaluable career experience. A number of interns have gone on to be hired by participating companies into full-time positions upon graduation. The program’s simple formula of allowing the employer and intern to have a look at each other and see if it’s a fit has found tremendous success.


“Finding and keeping talent is the priority of our region’s top companies. They know that internships are 
one of the best ways to locate and develop it. Our local students should take advantage of these great opportunities to discover why Southwest Michigan’s companies are globally competitive and their home marketplace is where to start when looking for a job after graduation,” said Ron Kitchens, chief executive officer of Southwest Michigan First.


“Linking Southwest Michigan’s post-secondary students with career choices in our region is the mission 
of the Monroe-Brown Foundation. We thank our 2015 partner companies for offering these eye-opening opportunities,” said Robert M. Brown, president of the Monroe-Brown Foundation“Our hope is that this year’s interns, like many of our past ones, use this opportunity to find a path to their future employment.”


The program is open to incoming juniors, seniors and graduate students at Western Michigan 
University, Kalamazoo College, Davenport University (Kalamazoo Campus only), Michigan State University, University of Michigan and second-year students at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Students attending Michigan State University and University of Michigan must have graduated from a high school in the greater Kalamazoo area.


Once the intern is hired, he or she will work for the company for a minimum of 400 hours between May 
and September. This is typically full-time for ten weeks, but can be customized to suit the needs of the individual companies and interns. Throughout the internship, the student will receive hourly wages, valuable networking opportunities and applied career experience.


Available internships and further program details can be found and applied for on the Southwest 
Michigan First website at http://www.southwestmichiganfirst.com/talent/monroebrown_internship_program/monroe_brown_internship_program.cfm.
