Last year I created a summer internship program for the Equipment Innovations team at PepsiCo. The program was so successful that it’s back by popular demand for 2013. The job description stays pretty much the same from last year (click the link below to see details). Those interested can apply by emailing our talent acquisition manager.
Most of the work will focus on the Pepsi Interactive Vending Machine (www.pepsiinteractivevending.com) which was launched into limited test markets earlier this year. There is a great deal of flexibility for ideation and innovation, so I’m looking forward to interviewing some great college candidates in Computer Science for these positions.
Pictured below are the 2012 Summer Interns that made the program such a huge success with a much talked about final presentation to our Senior VP and VP of Innovations (along with a host of other cross-functional executive members at PepsiCo) based on outstanding work done throughout the summer. Many thanks to these interns for the great job they did and for showcasing the value of this summer internship program.
