Intern – Research and Development Packaging- Summer 2024
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
As part of the Kellanova Internship program, you will participate in our corporate onboarding orientation and have the chance to visit our World Headquarters in Chicago, IL or our office in Battle Creek, MI during the Intern Finale meeting. These events consist of executive exposure, former intern & executive panels, networking events, community activities and much more.
This paid internship requires a 3-month, full-time commitment starting May 2024. Relocation advising and sign-on bonus provided – and did we mention we have plenty of snacks? Travel may be required but will depend on geography and placement. The internship concludes with a final presentation to functional leaders.
HERE’S A TASTE OF WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
- Packaging Iconic Brands – Work on cross-functional teams to support innovation projects for some of our most popular brands like Pop-Tarts and Rice Krispies Treats. You’ll also work on cost savings, supply chain support, and technical readiness for the company’s sustainable packaging goals.
