Interns had the opportunity to attend the Coffee and Careers speed networking event. The event started off with Bruce Albrecht who spoke to the group about his internship experience. The interns then participated in a networking event, where they were able to connect with over 25 senior leaders and hiring managers. During the event, they were able to ask the leaders questions and gain insights from their experience at the company. Some of the takeaways that interns had listed were to “not be afraid to get out of your comfort zone”, and to say “yes to opportunities.”
Interns also participated in a two-day orientation, where they were able to become familiar with the 80 products of the Welding Segment. This also included a presentation from Becky Tuchsherer, Group President, and Dave Lambert, VP of NA Sales, for the the interns on ITW and it’s values, and more about their experiences that got them to where they are today. They all left with their own nametags that they plasma cut and welded themselves!
