Internships & Co-ops
International Paper is proud to provide students with exceptional internship & co-op programs.
International Paper's interns have the opportunity to apply skills and knowledge from the classroom and acquire new ones while working with a supportive team of experts. Your efforts will lead to the delivery of important products that people depend on every day. You will share in the pride and satisfaction of working with a global leader in the packaging and pulp industry.
International Paper has shown me that IP stands by its core values and embodies a culture that leads to a career with purpose. Each teammate I have interacted with has exemplified The IP Way - doing the right things, in the right ways, for the right reasons, all of the time. My internship experience reflects the transparent and genuine work environment that originally drew me to International Paper.
