Engineer/Design/Supply Chain Internship Opportunity
I'm a Junior at Michigan State University Studying Applied Engineering Sciences. Simply put, its a combination of some sort of business concentration (supply chain, packaging, etc..) and engineering, however it is apart of the Engineering School and the majority of the class load is strictly engineering. I have been in search of internship opportunities lately and to be completely honest, none of them sound all that appealing.. I was wondering if anyone could offer any advice or insight on how to get in contact with the right people in the ski business. I have been an avid skier since I was young and I cant see a more fulfilling career than one in this industry!
Newschoolers is a solid place to start. There seems to be a lot of brands like ON3P, Surface, 4FRNT, Amplid, Icelantic, etc... That offer internships. Look around on their websites and see if they have any info on internships. If they don't, don't be afraid to shoot them an email asking about it. Or, shoot an orange name account here to get some info as well.
To get a great look inside the industry, read the recent Jason Levinthal Q&A. That interview gave me more insight than most other sources have.
Its easier than youd think. Just email them uour resume with an adult like paragraph teling them how you can benefit them and make sure the6 understand you will do anything they need (just because you're an engineer doesnt meen you wont be sweeping floors). I did this and got myself an internship at bern helmets my sophmore year of hs and it got me some great connections in the ski world
What it is.
I got my Associate's in Mech. Engineering and my Bachelor's in Business MGMT and interned at evo in Seattle as a copywriter. It was a seriously awesome experience and got me into the outdoor industry, which I'm still in. Just email/check the job pages of all of the companies you would be stoked to work for and hope for the best! Also check out malakye.com; it's an outdoor company job finder site and they sometimes post ads for internships. Good luck!
