ICPF’s Corrugated Career Network Has Many Multi Major Graduates and Student Interns Still Seeking 2020 Positions

During the past six months there have been over 60 job postings placed on the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation’s (ICPF) career portal by ICPF partner firms wishing to get an early start on their college recruiting for spring 2020.  However, in both ICPF’s resume bank and in ICPF’s corrugated career network, ICPF continues to have by far more students seeking summer internships and new 2020 graduates seeking entry level positions than reported openings among ICPF corporate partners.  Many of these students and upcoming graduates are facing a challenging year because of hiring freezes not only in our corrugated industry, but in other packaging industries and the CPG’s. 

This year poses a great opportunity for forward looking corrugated manufacturing firms seeking to attract personnel who will grow into future managers and executives. Many of ICPF’s corporate partners have been in contact with ICPF over the past two months for assistance in meeting new hiring needs.  However if you have not, and you may consider additional hiring this year, please ask your HR managers to contact ICPF on using ICPF’s career portal and resume bank to recruit students and new graduates who have concentrations in packaging science / engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, sales & marketing, business, industrial engineering, packaging design, graphic design, supply chain management and related.  Many of these students have interest in sales, production & operations management and design. Contact info@icpfbox.org for more specifics.

The International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) mission is to generate a stream of increasingly qualified students to enter the corrugated packaging and displays industry.  ICPF is dedicated to the creation and building of partnerships within the education community, provides curricula, equipment and other resources to advance corrugated curricula, works to expand student internships within the industry, and promotes corrugated packaging & display career opportunities for packaging engineering, graphic design, structural design, business, marketing & sales, supply chain management, mechanical & chemical engineering, industrial engineering & design, tech and related graduates.
