Santana Equipment Trading Company announces the 10-year milestone for their intern/management trainee program. The program is designed to provide college students throughout the United States with an opportunity to gain professional work experience, attain industry-related skills and learn real-world issues not taught in school. Santana Equipment Trading Company seeks sharp and talented college students/recent graduates as candidates for its intern/management trainee positions. The program was initially designed to recruit college students locally from the Chicago area. Now that the program has been running successfully for 10 years, Santana Equipment Trading Company has decided to expand the opportunity to students nationwide. The internship is geared toward current college students, whereas the management trainee position is for recent college graduates. Historically, the company has hired 90% of students who have completed the program to full time positions with the company.
Eric Davidson, President and founder of Santana Equipment Trading Company, notes “The program has evolved into a huge success, and we are very proud of the employees we have hired over the years. We have trained them with educational business programs, and it has paid off for us.” Eric also comments: “I have seen such diversity with our students, but we all get along as I encourage teamwork, positive energy, and contributions to the company with their unique ideas. As a company, we can develop our program to educate students in sales, marketing, and social media programs in ways that universities can’t achieve. Our students receive continued education through personal interaction and hands-on experience. This sort of training starts the students on a solid and successful career path."
