FCA US LLC College Intern Program offers a unique opportunity for highly motivated, innovative, and inspired individuals to work in a challenging assignment where contribution, teamwork, and communication are vital to the success of the organization. As a leading-edge company, we can provide real world challenges and rewarding intern experiences to candidates from a variety of colleges and universities while providing a competitive salary.
Interns are assigned to an organization department based on the candidate’s background, skill set and interests. The assignments are project-oriented, meaningful to the department and will allow you to take responsibility for major tasks. Interns experience a sense of personal accomplishment and contribution, and experience the corporate business culture through work assignments and structured activities. You will gain the communication and etiquette skills required in business while sharing knowledge gained from your recent academic courses. You will also enhance your computer skills and learn new systems and software.
Each Intern assignment consists of challenging projects with specific goals, providing opportunities for personal growth and development. Interns that demonstrate outstanding qualities may be invited back the following year for a second internship or offered full-time positions in our various new hire programs. Summer internships are primarily located at the FCA US Headquarters and Technology Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan, other facilities in the Detroit Metropolitan area, and Business Centers located throughout the United States. Interns may qualify for a housing allowance and/or travel assistance (transportation to and from work is the responsibility of the intern). During the internship, you will have the opportunity to participate in many activities designed specifically to enhance your knowledge of FCA, our brands, and the metro Detroit area.
The Sales internship experience introduces how we build, market, distribute and sell vehicles to our dealers and ultimately the retail customer. You will have exposure to multiple headquarters departments within sales, marketing, finance, and supply chain and be given assignments and projects that directly support our Sales senior management team. Typical workload may include extensive competitive analysis, creation of marketing & advertising materials, digital campaigns, event planning, and incentive cost evaluation as well as exposure to daily departmental tasks such national reporting and communications. Sales interns are not just observers but a true extension of our headquarters team. Our goal is to prepare you for an eventual full-time entry-level Field Sales position within one of our nine FCA field offices.
