During the past six months, there have been over 70 job postings placed on the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation's (ICPF) career portal by ICPF partner firms wishing to get an early start on their college recruiting for spring 2020.
However, in both ICPF’s resume bank and in ICPF's corrugated career network, ICPF continues to have by far more students seeking summer internships and new 2020 graduates seeking entry level positions than reported openings among ICPF corporate partners. Many of these students and upcoming graduates are facing a challenging year because of hiring freezes not only in our corrugated industry, but in other packaging industries and the CPG’s. This year poses a great opportunity for corrugated manufacturing firms that are capable of going forward in seeking to attract personnel who will grow into future managers and executives. Many of ICPF's corporate partners have been in contact with ICPF over the past two months for assistance in meeting new hiring needs. However if you have not, and you may consider additional hiring this year, please ask your HR managers to contact ICPF on using ICPF's career portal and resume bank to recruit students and new graduates who have concentrations in packaging science / engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, sales & marketing, business, industrial engineering, packaging design, graphic design, supply chain management and related. Many of these students have interest in sales, production & operations management and design.
Pictured are Emily VanderMoere, a 2020 graduate of Michigan State’s Packaging School, and Kelsea Potthast, a University of Florida junior majoring in Business Administration (concentration in marketing) with a minor in packaging science. After attending ICPF’s Student / Executive Dialogue Dinner, Emily was offered a position as structural designer with Green Bay Packaging and Kelsea acquired a sales internship with Hood Container Corporation.
