International Paper has a long history with the School, and returned to recruiting vigorously in recent years. In summer 2019, five interns were employed by International Paper, and all five were converted to full-time hires. 2020 is the organization's first year as a Scholarship Partner.
This summer, International Paper hosted two interns, Ethan Hall and Richard Chung. Ethan holds a bachelor’s degree from Purdue University, and before this experience he was an ESL Educator for VIPKid, part of the Writing Center Staff at Purdue University, and was Copywriter/Market Research Intern at WeCreate Media. Richard holds a bachelor’s degree from UIUC, and was a Research Assistant at the Leadership, Competition, and Collaboration Lab, and a Marketing and Recruitment Administrator for the Team Doberman charity.
