Invent U Internship Program
Where in the World Will Your Passion Take You?
At Axalta, we go beyond the ordinary in everything we do. That includes the evolution of our internship program that we call Invent U. The twelve week internship program provides interns with the resources, exposure, and support needed to develop their skills and capabilities in a realistic work environment. The Invent U program matches interns’ academic and career interests with a relevant department and role at Axalta. Each intern works with a supervisor to assist and guide the intern through the completion of large-scale projects and smaller assignments that are essential to the daily operations within our company. The internship program is expanding to other selected countries where Axalta does business.
Key Project Program
Axalta’s Invent U program delivers a meaningful and professional experience for college students. To enhance the real-world experience, department managers assign each intern a unique project designed to challenge interns to build a diversified set of skills and experiences, have true business value, and contribute to the growth of a global company. At the conclusion of the internship, interns present the results of their Key Project to senior management during a formal business review.
Each week, interns hear from members of Axalta’s senior management team through our Execu-Com Series. Heads of major departments and business units deliver 60-minute presentations during which they explain their role at Axalta and share insights into their professional journeys. At the end of each presentation, interns have the opportunity to ask questions and explore facets of the presentations in greater detail. Through this series, interns learn about leadership, innovation, passion, drive and ways to propel their own careers.
Axalta North American Summer Summit
Each year, Axalta brings all of its interns based in North America to Axalta’s global headquarters in Philadelphia for an intensive three-day program. During the Summer Summit, interns learn more about the history of Axalta, tour our major facilities in the greater Philadelphia area, and connect with important customers. In addition, the program is filled with team-building exercises, such as a half-day professional development session that focuses on personal growth. These three days provide interns with the opportunity to expand their professional networks and have a more extensive understanding of everything Axalta has to offer.
