A Lincoln Electric Co-op or Internship is more than just work.
Networking: Lincoln Electric is committed to keeping our Co-ops and Interns fully engaged in our company culture. Co-ops and Interns are each assigned an employee ‘Peer’ to help introduce them to the company and serve as a mentor throughout their term. Various networking events are held for our young professionals to interact and socialize outside of the office. Previous events have included: Cookout at our Centennial Park, Ice Cream Social, and sporting events.
Community Engagement: As one of the largest employers in Cleveland, Lincoln Electric maintains a positive presence in the community through philanthropic efforts and corporate functions. Employees participate in community service projects through organizations such as the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity. Every Summer, Lincoln Electric fields sports teams to compete against other companies in the Cleveland Corporate Challenge – and we like to win!
Professional Development: As the Welding Experts, we couldn’t let our Co-ops and Interns leave without teaching them to strike an arc! All Co-ops and Interns participate in a week-long course in our world-renowned Welding Technology Center. Co-ops and Interns are invited to “Lunch and Learn” on a weekly basis with leaders from departments throughout the company. These sessions are designed to introduce Co-ops and Interns to departments outside of their own, and provide exposure of how each department functions as part of the company.
At the conclusion of the term, Co-ops and Interns take the spotlight to present their project work in front of peers, supervisors, and company leadership — even the CEO!
