Santana Equipment Trading Company’s Intern/Management Trainee Program Launches Nationwide
Date Posted: 8/1/2013
Santana Equipment Trading Company, one of the fastest growing companies in the materials handling industry, announces the 10 year milestone for its 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.
Kylie Sheehan, the most recent intern to partake in the program, was hired recently out of the University of Kentucky. Originally from the Chicago area herself, Kylie hopes to expand her working knowledge of B2B sales and marketing during her time 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.”
Santana Equipment Trading Company is an industry leader in the materials handling market. Santana primarily buys and sells used forklifts.
