Alexandria, VA...

The ICPF Teleconference grand finale this past February included ICPF's 2018 Student Packaging Design Presentation Competition. Three student teams from Cal Poly, Millersville University and University of Texas at Arlington were tasked to show, tell and sell their packaging designs by explaining the objective, the research conducted, design elements and other background. University of Texas at Arlington secured first place, second place went to Cal Poly’s student team and the Millersville student team won third place. All three teams received a cash prize. These exceptional students have posted their resumes on ICPF’s career portal and are using the portal to locate student internships and career openings. 


With hundreds of students interested in industry openings, now is your window in time to recruit 2018 student interns and  graduates. For those ICPF corporate partners (and firms considering corporate partner pledges) that have entry level openings or wish to offer a student internship, one of the most proven tools for recruiting is ICPF's Career Portal.  Not only do you get direct applications from new or upcoming graduates, the posting of an opening allows your firm to search ICPF’s online Resume Bank that has over 200 resumes. If your firm has an entry level opening in packaging design, graphic design, sales, business or engineering, or you wish to locate a student intern for this coming summer or fall, contact rflaherty@icpfbox.org to get started.  ICPF's Career Portal is a free benefit for ICPF corporate partners.
