    Solution Tree’s High School Summer Internship Program
    Solution Tree is a rapidly growing educational publishing company based in Bloomington, Indiana. Solution Tree employees and interns enjoy an innovative, team-oriented environment at a great downtown location.

    Solution Tree’s Summer Internship Program has been developed to help pique the interest of college bound high school students planning for a career in any number of business related fields, including (but not limited to): publishing, marketing/sales, accounting, professional development, customer service, or event/conference planning. Qualified students entering their junior or senior year in high school are eligible for this six-week internship program. This program provides area high school students with an opportunity to learn more about different careers.

    Students are required to work 2 days per week, 6 hours per day, for the internship period. This internship program is unique. Instead of working in only one department during their internship, at Solution Tree, students will work in a variety of different departments. Students will spend one week in each of the six different areas listed above. The goal is to give students exposure to different roles and careers. Solution Tree will provide a kick off celebration to start their internship and will host a recognition reception for the students and their parents at the end of their assignment. Upon satisfactory completion of the six-week internship program, each intern will receive a $1000 monetary gift.

    Students will have completed an application and completed a formal interview process. Students will be required to go through Solution Tree’s orientation. They will also be required to orient in the departments in which they will be interning. This internship is designed to give the high school students observation and as much hands-on experience as possible. It also provides students with interviewing and career skills to help prepare them for the workforce.

    Students are required to submit an application and two letters of recommendation (from a teacher, administrator or mentor) by TBA. Selected interns will be notified (TBA). Please contact 812-336-7700 ext. 231 or jobs@solution-tree.com for more information about Solution Tree’s High School Summer Internship Program.
