Fenner Precision Polymers once again affirmed its commitment to education and the next generation of manufacturing by hosting three paid interns in various locations across the company this summer.
Stephen Meholic served as a New Product Development (NPD) intern in Engineering, giving him a feel for industrial engineering and how his studies apply to the real world.
“Through the internship I figured out that I enjoy the design aspect of engineering and I would like my future job to be a design engineer. I also would like to work with robotics.”
A rising senior at Penn State University – Harrisburg majoring in mechanical engineering, Stephen is hoping to find a job in new product development when he graduates.
Alyssa Gehr worked as an Intern with the Commercial Team, coordinating efforts among several departments to help understand how to take products to market.
“I’ve seen how critical it is for marketers to understand everything that is going on, so they can do their part to the best of their abilities.”
She will be a returning senior on Main Campus at Pennsylvania State University this fall, majoring in marketing and minoring in psychology. She is still contemplating her career plans post-graduation.
Luke Kessler served as an intern on the Supply Chain team, working to understand the complexities of a real-world business environment.
“It has been a big steppingstone to begin applying supply chain concepts to real world scenarios that aren’t always as plain and simple as taught in a classroom setting. Working as part of an outstanding supply chain team has allowed me to develop a better understanding of how different aspects of business can work together and communicate to move together toward a common goal.”
A Supply Chain Operations Management major at York College of Pennsylvania, Luke will graduate this fall. After graduation, he hopes to work in the supply chain management field, improving his skills in data analysis and adding more techniques to his repertoire.
