Garrett Internship Program Named to Top 100 Best Internships for 2022
Oct. 26th, 2021
The Garrett Internship Program is thrilled to announce its place on the 100 Best Internship Program Rankings for 2022 by Firsthand. The GIP was ranked as the 29th best internship program out of 100, beating out companies such as Comcast, KPMG, and EY-Parthenon.
In order to achieve these rankings, Firsthand asked interns to rate their actual internship experiences. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest and 1 being the lowest, respondents were asked to rate their internship experiences in six core areas: Career Development, Compensation and Benefits, Diversity, Full-Time Employment Prospects, Interview Process, and Quality of Life. To determine an overall score for each program, the ratings were assigned relative weights based on what interns told us they value most in an internship. The overall scores are based on the following weighted formula: 30 percent career development, 20 percent employment prospects, 20 percent quality of life, 20 percent compensation, 5 percent diversity, and 5 percent interview process.
In 2021, the GIP featured 20 interns based in Greenwood, Indiana, and various Denver, Colorado suburbs. The program featured guest speaker series’, Garrett Alumni Group events, and department workshops. Internships have proven to be increasingly vital to the success
of college students in developing their careers, and to the talent acquisition goals of our company. With much of the national workforce slowly coming back to the office, and some not coming back at all, college students are finding it increasingly difficult to secure internships where they can learn the vital skills of communication, teammate collaboration, and interpersonal professionalism. TGC’s award winning culture creates an environment where young students can learn from the very best example. At the same time, The Garrett Companies’ rapid growth and expansion to new markets demands non-traditional methods to attract and develop top talent.
