Internship Stories

“Hunter team members gave me helpful, consistent feedback, which developed my engineering and process improvement skills. I was able to apply the skills I learned during the internship to coursework during my senior year and was later offered a job at Hunter Industries after graduation.”

“The Hunter Industries Internship Program provided me a unique opportunity to learn about the Manufacturing Industry. This summer intern experience has truly been worthwhile and helped me transition to become a full-time employee.”

“My 2018 summer internship at Hunter Industries gave me the opportunity to develop as a professional while being able to make meaningful relationships along the way. My thoughts and contributions were valued every day as an intern and that gave me confidence.”

“What I loved most about the internship was working alongside interns and employees on projects that actually impacted the company, not just busy-work. After being an intern, the transition to employee was almost seamless: same people, same projects, same process.”

“Whether you go on to work at Hunter after your internship or not, this is a great program that gives you real work, real responsibilities, and real opportunities that will help you when you go to launch your career.”

“My Mechanical Engineering Internship with Hunter in the summer of 2003 was very enjoyable. I really enjoyed the practicality of the projects that were assigned and how the work I was doing was contributing to an actual design improvement opportunity. In addition, I was really inspired by the friendliness of everyone that worked at Hunter and the amazing culture that they had. The internship also led to an opportunity for a full-time position at Hunter the following year, and I’ve been with Hunter since. What is amazing, but not surprising, is the qualities that made for a great internship at Hunter 17 years ago, still remain and hold true today. ”

“It provided a solid insight into the tasks, responsibilities, and challenges that an engineer faces in a manufacturing environment. The internship program will build the foundation needed to transition into a full-time career post-graduation.”
