The last thing you’ll have to worry about with an internship at Steelcase Inc. is having a sparsely furnished office. The company, founded in 1912, is the leading office furniture company in the world, with annual revenue of $2.3 billion. Steelcase has approximately 13,000 employees and dealers in more than 600 locations around the world.
Internships are generally available in marketing, finance, design, engineering, IT, supply chain, materials management and global sustainability. Responsibilities vary, but all interns are assigned project-based work based on their academic experience. Steelcase organizes summer events for interns, including a speaker series, career discussion panels and other community-building activities. About 15 to 20 percent of interns are offered positions at the company upon graduation.
Varies by position, but the company generally looks for students who can commit to at least one year. A minimum GPA of 3.0 is typically required and demonstrated leadership qualities are preferred. Non-U.S. citizens are welcome.
