Altria will be back on campus this spring seeking intern candidates and I would appreciate you forwarding this on to any of your CMCL students that may be interested. Our internships are challenging and give students real life experiences. From Day 1, they will be given 30-50 accounts of their own to manage all summer. They will assess the market’s business conditions, create plans for growth and sell against their account’s opportunities. Our internships are 10 weeks long and offer a highly competitive pay. The 2013 rate is at least $18.00/ hour, with a living stipend if they choose to intern in a city where they don’t live (our opportunities are typically in larger cities within Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky), mileage and a company laptop. According to Business Week, Altria is one of the top 20 best places to launch your career.
We have student ambassadors on campus that successfully completed their internship this past summer and were given full time offers upon graduation. I would love to set up a meeting between one of them and any interested students you have so they can learn a little bit more about who we are and what we do before interviews start! We will have recruiters on campus January 24, 2013 to meet with students and our official interviews are the week of February 4. Internships are for current Juniors. Being a CMCL alum, I believe that many of the skills I learned through this degree has prepared me well for a successful career with Altria.
Thanks so much for your support and feel free to have any of your students contact me with questions!
