This year has been “non-traditional” when it comes to internships, but that didn’t stop us from pulling off a fantastic experience for some returning students.
You can only be a young college student for a short time of life. That time can be interesting…but doing an internship in the midst of a pandemic can be really interesting.
As we celebrate Intern Day 2020, we were inspired by our friends from SEPAC in New York. Their senior leader shared these thoughts: “Interns! Why hire Interns? Because we were all 19 years-old once. I’ve seen 6 or 7 of them grow up over (the) years. It was fun having them work in our Elmira and Syracuse plants. All of them great kids with bright futures. That’s the kind of company I want to build, be part of, and wherever you are I hope you do too.”
At HORST Engineering we want to be that kind of company too – the type of company that continues to champion bright students. We’d like to take this opportunity to shout out to our amazing 2020 HORST Interns:
- Michael McCarthy
- Cristian Pabon
- Steven St. Pierre
Scott Livingston, HORST Engineering’s president and CEO shared these thoughts: “Personally, I can recall working at HORST as a teenager and thinking about the future. I didn’t know what I wanted to be or what I was going to do, but my experience opened my eyes to the possibilities. I learned about work ethic and values.”
While some of our interns may return for another stint in the future, some may progress to a different work experience. We hope that their time spent with Team HORST was valuable and that they got “take home value” from the time invested to help make our family business better.
