Keith Martino, Senior Vice President of Operations, hosted the workshop for the San Joaquin Valley Manufacturing Alliance membership onsite September 17, 2019. The workshop brought together 50 regional manufacturing leaders for the purpose of learning about the incredible opportunities to grow a strong workforce by utilizing both internships and externships.
Through internships, manufacturers can provide relevant, real-world experience to students while giving their staff valuable coaching and mentoring experience. Then companies can use externships to develop their teams into strong community ambassadors and industry advisors, while upskilling future generations.
“It was great to see our Fresno business leaders participating in this event to help promote internships with Duncan Polytech and other local high schools and universities,” shared Keith Martino. “We are happy to support this program, and welcome the opportunity to share our own ongoing success stories with student interns who have become amazing team members.” You can learn more about the organization here www.sjvma.org.
