Storm internships give students opportunities to learn about manufacturing, and to get some hands-on experience before graduation. This gives students real-world experience to help tackle their senior-year capstone coursework, and allows them to be better prepared for a position on their first day employment, providing them with an advantage over other candidates.

Our summer internship programs let students immerse themselves in projects and make a real difference here at Storm. We’ve got great internships all over the company, from Marketing to Engineering, and more. Many of our interns end up with great careers, right here at Storm.

Meet a few of our Storm Interns:

Market Research Intern Nichole Lee

Market Research Intern Nichole Lee graduated in spring 2013 from Georgia State University with a degree in Marketing and Psychology. In the near future, she will begin working toward a Master’s degree in Market Research at the University of Georgia—the only school in the southeast that offers the degree.

During her internship, Nichole’s major project was researching the strategies that businesses employ to increase their online channel sales. The data she collected, along with her evaluation of that data, has been published in a report titled, Business to Business E-Commerce Best Practices.

“I was able to learn about an industry I might not otherwise have experienced. Most of my professional experience has been in the hospitality industry, so learning about the industrial/manufacturing industry was very interesting. The internship helped me understand the hierarchy in manufacturing, to learn about the day-to-day operations, and how things are done differently in an industrial setting than they are in other industries. “

Finance Intern Lauren Dymecki

Lauren Dymecki is a senior accounting major at Auburn University who worked in accounts payable in the Finance Department this summer. Lauren was able to gain hands-on accounting and finance experience because her position was designed to provide real-life project work. This kind of experience can truly help the student make realistic and knowledgeable decisions about their future career goals.

“The internship at Storm was an amazing opportunity, and helped me learn so much about manufacturing industry,” states Dymecki. “I gained exactly the kind of in-depth financial and accounting experience I was looking for from an internship.”
