Each business function determines the focus and scope for each of our internships based on business need.

    Training and Development

    We make sure you have the tools and resources available to you to be successful through comprehensive trainings and professional development opportunities. In addition to specific learnings that will help you understand your business function and the company, you’ll have access to explore a wide variety of online learning tools throughout your program.

    Mentoring Program

    From the first day of your internship, you’ll be assigned a mentor who will help you navigate your way at SC Johnson and answer any questions you may have through the duration of your internship. Your mentor is a connection you work closely with in addition to your manager, expanding your network within the company.

    Housing Assistance

    SC Johnson has arranged to have furnished apartments available to you, subsidized by the company to assist you with your housing needs. The apartments are located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Chicago, Illinois and Bay City, Michigan, helping interns to experience living in the areas surrounding our Global Corporate and North America headquarters.
