Since 2015, hundreds of college students from Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula have participated in Internship Draft Day at Lambeau Field. The event is like an NFL Draft, but instead of receiving a football contract, students can be awarded a scholarship, in addition to a possible paid internship.
Internship Draft Day is organized by the Northeast Wisconsin Educational Resource Alliance (NEW ERA) and the NEW Manufacturing Alliance (NEWMA). They work collaboratively to expand manufacturing career pathways, in addition to building a talent pipeline through internships.
Preregistered students can get points before the event based on their level of participation in clubs, past work experience and GPA. They can receive more points during draft day based on how well they interview for any of their pre-scheduled interviews.
Each company chooses their MVI – Most Valuable Interview. At the end of the event, each preregistered student’s points are added. Top draft picks are announced for each school, followed by the overall #1 MVI.
Students can also choose to only network and not schedule any interviews, but will then not be part of the scoring competition. Either way, Internship Draft Day is a win for college students and NEWMA member employers.
Become a part of this great, annual tradition!
