This summer, 10 college students or recent college graduates were selected for internships in various departments within MKC. Many were referred to the internship by current employees or were recruited at college job fairs. Others have previously been summer employees for MKC and were approached about the internship.
Jeff Frizell, Human Resources Manager for MKC, says that the internship program, “gives us high quality talent during the summer months to assist the cooperative with special projects.”Although MKC has had interns for a number of years, Frizell says this is the fourth year for the improved program since it was reorganized, with the number of interns significantly increased. One of the biggest developments of this year’s program is the manager for each intern was brought in to a special meeting to create a list of goals for interns to complete over the summer.
