At McCormick Stevenson we understand the importance of professional development and industry networking and the impact it has on our company’s culture. It’s one of our top core values. Our ownership team of Melissa, Noel and Paul enhance the team’s dynamic by encouraging a spirit of collaboration and mentoring. This philosophy extends to our internship program. For over 20 years, McCormick Stevenson interns have learned new skills, explored our organization, networked with experts, connected with industry leaders, and finished up with a resume that opens doors.
Having a desire to enhance our industry networking and internship program opportunities, McCormick Stevenson became a founding member of the Tampa Bay Engineering Internship Alliance (TBEIA). TBEIA began in 2013 when we joined forces with other local business leaders, as well as both the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Tampa Bay to create a coalition of technology companies dedicated to ensuring high-quality internship opportunities for engineering and technology students. McCormick Stevenson is pleased to have brought on another intern this year as a result of the TBEIA mixer; Ray Burdge shared his thoughts on how he got started with McCormick Stevenson.
“I first heard about McCormick Stevenson through my professor who recommend that I attend their internship mixer. After submitting my resume on their website, I was asked to come in for an interview and had a great conversation with Nat and got a tour of the facility. After about 2 months McCormick Stevenson reached out for a possible internship, and a few weeks later I joined their team as a part time intern. All of this would not have happened if it wasn’t for the internship mixer. The mixer provided me the opportunity to network with industry professionals and companies, and ultimately helped me get an internship.”
If you’re a Tampa Bay engineering or technology student or a local industry expert looking to get involved with TBEIA, please plan to attend our next mixer to learn more about us and make valuable connections.
