Do you remember what it was like when you were in high school or college and you were trying to figure out what you wanted to be when you graduated? Do you remember thinking you knew what you wanted to do but just wasn’t sure? This is probably the case with most high school and college students. The only way to really find out if a particular career is something you’re interested in pursuing is to try that career out. One way to do that is through an internship or co-op experience.
Here at Anderson Development Company (ADC), we welcome interns and co-ops to local students or students who attend local College and Universities. Anderson Development Company partners with local colleges to get interns to work as an Engineer Co-op, in our Research and Development Labs, or newly added Environmental Group internship.
Here’s what a couple interns had to say about their current intern experience at ADC:
“I really like the atmosphere at ADC and the people that I work with every day.”-Elizabeth June
Elizabeth June is interning in our Polyurethane R&D group. She joined ADC in January 2015. She graduated from Adrian College this past spring, majoring in Biochemistry. She originally thought she would go into a medical related field, but her current projects and research here at ADC has really sparked her interest in Chemistry. She thoroughly enjoys the problem solving and research that is involved with the systems she’s working with.
“I really enjoy working at ADC because everyone is very open and welcoming here.”-Jeryl Struder
Jeryl Struder began her work as an intern in the summer of 2013, also for the Polyurethane R&D group. Jeryl is a student at Calvin College, but is working on transferring to a local college, likely Siena Heights University. She is entering her senior year of college and plans to obtain a degree in Chemistry. Upon graduation, Jeryl is hoping to get a job to get some experience and look into going to graduate school to pursue nanotechnology.
Anderson Development Company is committed to our community and making our it a better place to live. Allowing students to come into our facility to learn and gain work experience is just one way that ADC gives back to our community.
