PE’s College Graduate and Internship Programs

Productive Edge’s positive working environment provides opportunities for up-and-coming young professionals to further the impact of emerging technologies on enterprises across the globe. Over the past several years, PE has focused on hiring students from top universities in the Midwest and beyond in order to supply these opportunities for growth and development through a dedicated internship program. Likewise, Productive Edge places an emphasis on the value of hiring recent college graduates to join the company as full-time associates.

Investing in Tomorrow's Leaders

“Productive Edge is investing in the future today by training the individuals who will be shaping it tomorrow,” said Tanner Morris, Director of Recruiting at Productive Edge. “Allowing interns and new graduates to experiment with emerging technologies instills passion in the career they are considering, so they’re especially energized when they eventually enter the professional workforce.” In 2019, PE is increasing investment in our program which focuses on cultivating the best and brightest young talent available. In order to achieve our graduate hiring objectives, PE has been touring college campuses to recruit the top student talent for internships, as well as students who are graduating and entering the workforce. These visits have allowed PE to adapt our offerings in order to put an emphasis on the employee’s experience.

Cultivating Talent Through Internships

Productive Edge internships have ranged from software development to digital product design and have allowed students to shadow employees at Productive Edge to gain insight into how the various roles operate within the larger organization. Along with collaborating with different teams, the interns also work with emerging technologies in real-world projects. Last summer, the interns at Productive Edge leveraged MXChip Azure IoTHub Dev Kit, Raspberry Pi, Microsoft Cognitive Services, and other tools to develop the initial stages of a first-of-its-kind IoT-enabled beer keg. The solution utilized machine learning technology to recall and suggest a drinker’s favorite beer based on facial recognition. PE believes that our employees are the prime reason we are a leader in an increasingly competitive landscape. We make it a priority to ensure we are always working to positively influence every team member by creating a supportive and challenging work environment where anyone from an intern to executive can learn and grow on their desired career path.
