and learning the whole business
“During my six-month Pella co-op, I was responsible for projects that directly affected the product and production. My mentor and the engineering team offered their experience and guidance with each new project challenge. I was able to take control as project manager, engage in problem-solving, and enhance relationships with vendors. The program also provided leadership training and many fun, hands-on activities, supplemented with insight and career advice from Pella’s leadership team.
“In addition, the Pella community provided opportunities to grow outside of work. For me, this included coaching soccer and volunteering in other youth activities. I completed my internship with a job offer, a scholarship, some great experiences and a career direction."
