College Recruitment Program

Do you want an exciting career contributing to an industry that creates products essential to everyday life?  For more than 40 years, Carpenter Technology has offered  a wide array of Co-Op and Internship opportunities to help students apply what they've learned in school to real-life work experiences. Every Co-op/Intern is assigned a corporate mentor in the student’s field of study to help them learn their way around their work site. Many students hone their technical skills and learn about the world of work each year; many return to the company in entry-level positions. Outside of a challenging and rewarding work experience, we offer a competitive salary, paid holidays, and fun-filled summer outings. Programs include part-time 6 month co-ops year-round, and full-time summer internships, depending on which department you will be contributing to. Students living outside of a 50 mile radius of their work site may qualify for a housing or commuting stipend.                                                    

Carpenter Technology is large enough to provide you with professional growth and small enough to recognize and appreciate your personal contributions. The friendly work environment and close-knit relationships with co-workers will guide you on your journey to the career you've always wanted. If you'd like to play a role in our success, following are some of the areas we offer challenging opportunities for students at Carpenter Technology.
