Bayer MaterialScience LLC and the Pittsburgh Penguins have announced the first dual-internship program associated with the two iconic Pittsburgh names. Both Bayer and the Penguins currently have independent internship programs; however, the two Pittsburgh-based organizations have decided to team up and offer a dynamic internship experience to college students in the region.
“Offering a job-specific experience, such as an internship, with a global company and a member of the National Hockey League, will provide students valuable experience that will continue to benefit them after the internship ends,” says Jeremy Zimmer, Senior Director of New Media with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The six-month internship, focused on new media, will have the student assisting the Penguins’ Director of New Media, from June to August and then working with the social media team lead at Bayer MaterialScience LLC, from September to November. This type of internship is appropriate for college students pursuing a degree in Multimedia, Communications, Marketing, Interactive Design or a related discipline. The student should be completing his/her sophomore year of college at the time of application and have experience in website development and social/digital media. To see the full list of required qualifications and to apply for the internship, visit penguins.nhl.com and go to the bottom of the page and click on “employment and internships.”
“We are excited to expand our teamwork with the Penguins as well as set an example for other organizations, by illustrating the outcomes of innovative and collaborative thinking,” says Lauren Dorsch, who leads social media efforts at Bayer MaterialScience LLC.
Through innovative thinking, Bayer MaterialScience LLC and the Penguins have created a collaborative model for other organizations to give college students an opportunity to expand their experiences as they begin their careers.
