WCMA Launches Internship Exchange
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/15/2017

The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association has launched its all new Internship Exchange, a program designed to enhance the industry's workforce pipeline.

"With a national labor shortage looming, it's important that employers do all that they can to attract talented workers," said WCMA Director John Umhoefer. "An internship program is a highly-effective tool for companies trying to connect with future employees."

The program will pair interested students with dairy products manufacturers and processors and their supplier partners in the various fields, including Production, Machine Operation, Maintenance, Packaging, Quality Assurance/Food Safety, Marketing, Accounting, and Human Resources.

WCMA is partnering with the University of Wisconsin System, the Wisconsin Technical College System, and the State of Wisconsin's new WisConnect program to build a prospective intern pool.

A study from the National Association of Colleges and Employers found that approximately 67-percent of internships end with a full-time job offer, and that 76-percent of those offers are accepted.

To participate in the WCMA Internship Exchange, contact the association at 608-828-4550.
