2021 Summer Internship | Trade Marketing Development
The Southern Glazer’s Internship Program was established to develop the next generation of Sales, Trade Development, Operations, and Corporate leaders. Each summer, the program offers interns the opportunity to engage in career building activities while simultaneously learning and applying industry-leading practices.
All interns will be assigned a project at the beginning of the internship and will be required to make a presentation at the end of the summer to top executive leaders. If our internship is able to be in-person, Interns will also be given the opportunity to ride-along with Sales Representatives as well as complete a rotation within several departments of our business such as Sales, Operations, Marketing, Trade Development, Finance, etc.
This hands-on experience gives interns the chance to explore and understand the adult beverage industry. The knowledge gained from industry leaders will allow you to build a network of professionals within the beverage alcohol industry and here at Southern Glazer’s.
