We are only as good as the legacy we leave behind for future generations. That’s why it’s important to impress upon them what we have learned before it’s their time to step up and lead. The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA) is ensuring that traditions in the dairy sector live on as it is now accepting Fall/Winter 2020 applications for its Internship Exchange. This program pairs students with WCMA members, including dairy processors, manufacturers, and industry supplier partners, for at least one full semester of hands-on work experience.

John Umhoefer, Executive Director, Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association“Internships offer the next generation of workers a meaningful introduction to the industry, while they offer employers a much-needed workforce pipeline,” Executive Director John Umhoefer said.

The WCMA Internship Exchange will receive applications from students interested in the following career fields: Production, Machine Operation, Maintenance, Packaging, Quality Assurance/Food Safety, Marketing, Accounting, and Human Resources. According to a press release, WCMA works with the University of Wisconsin System, Wisconsin Technical College System, and high school guidance counselors to promote these opportunities.

WCMA invites members to indicate interest in hosting interns. Employers should expect to commit to an intern for a full semester, offer structured and supervised opportunities for learning, and be prepared to complete evaluations on the intern’s efforts for educational credits. Interested employers can email Communications, Education and Policy Coordinator Ellie Herman.

As we continue to build the legacy that ultimately lays the groundwork of the future, we at Deli Market News will be here bringing you the latest.
