Manufacturing Career Internship Program (MCIP)

Nearly 17% of Schaumburg’s total workforce is employed by the manufacturing sector and this critical industry is experiencing notable business growth that is generating the need for new talent. To assist in securing the long-term viability of the manufacturing sector the SBA works to highlight the types of jobs, wages, and careers that manufacturing provides offers to aspiring professionals.

During February the SBA partnered with our friends the Illinois workNet Center in getting local manufacturers involved with the Manufacturing Careers Internship Program (MCIP) – a comprehensive 12-week program designed to engage people 18-24 in a career in manufacturing.

Since 2011, more than 200 companies have participated and over 450 interns have completed the MCIP. More than 70% of the interns are now employed or pursuing post-secondary education and training. More than 85% of those hired immediately after the internship have stayed with the company for longer than 6 months.

To highlight the benefit of this unique program, the SBA’s relationship with the manufacturing community the SBA reached out to over 10 local manufacturers to let them know this beneficial program and we were able to secure five manufacturers to participate in this program.

The five Schaumburg manufacturers will be part of a 4-week Boot Camp that leads directly to an 8-week paid internship. During the boot camp, interns will visit and tour the manufacturers facility, learn essential “work-readiness skills”, brush up on their math skills and gain OSHA and Lift Truck Driving Certifications. At the end of the boot camp, participating employers interview and select interns for an 8-week internship paid by the MCIP.

Partnering with the Illinois workNet Center and bringing beneficial internship and workforce development programs to our members and local business is critical for our businesses to continue to grow.
