MBFS recognizes that young people are the future and one way we help ensure our future is to partner with universities for our Internship/Co-Op programs. These programs feed the future talent needs of MBFS while also increasing the diversity of our new talent and identifying potential future leaders.
We provide internship opportunities for students at U.S. universities and colleges, as well as for international students. An internship program provides mutual benefits to the student and the organization. Internships are a competitively paid position where the intern gains “real world” work experience but no educational credit. MBFS’ Internship Program allows our organization to benefit from the opportunity to assist in the individual student's development and to build a lasting relationship with local colleges and universities. The Internship Program can also enhance our long-term recruiting efforts by allowing us to evaluate different academic programs as potential resource pools for future talent.
We also provide a Cooperative (Co-Op) Program for students currently enrolled in a co-op program at their college or university. A co-op program provides mutual benefits to the student and the organization. The student obtains on-the-job training while receiving minimum wage and educational credits through his/her school. This differs from an internship because an internship is a paid position through which the intern gains “real world” work experience but no educational credit. When participating in a co-op program, MBFS benefits by receiving additional temporary resources, as well as a good resource pool for future talent.
