Hey everyone, I'm a junior in a college in Virginia and obviously interested in snowboarding. My major is pretty technical and I am looking into manufacturing/engineering type internships. I would gladly get an internship during the school year, but of course nothing is located in Virginia. I am willing to go almost anywhere for a good enough opportunity. Also, I already have searched many company websites and malakye.com

So my question is, are snowboarding related internships even offered during the summer? What are some good companies that are open to helping students get started in the field? What are the special key words that these companies would look for on my resume?

Thanks in advance if I get any responses!

Are you looking for something in mechanical design or the actual manufacturing process?
Either one really. Right now I am learning how to use CAD, CAM, and other related software in lab. In class I am learning about the steps in the manufacturing process and how to be the most efficient and solve issues.

wrath - thanks, I'll contact them!

kansas - well, my major is only offered at my school. I study integrated science and technology (ISAT) and one of the branches I am studying is manufacturing/engineering. The other two branches I've chosen are biotech and information & knowledge management (which is mostly computer programming)

I'd be pushing for Mervin as they are on the forefront of integrating sustainable biotechnology into the snowboard manufacturing process.

You would love it there.
