Tim’s Answer

I would share that to find the best training programs one should first find a professional who is performing the work you wish to train in. This individual could be interviewed being asked "the good, the bad, and the ugly" of their current position. To learn what they would encourage as additional training, education, certification(s) etc. could prove invaluable. In fact, to find similar individuals prior to completing a degree and obtaining their input might save prove insightful. This approach facilitated might transition from engineering to industrial management and ultimately to Healthcare Administration. Caring and patient C-level individuals made it possible to bridge the academic and real-world applications and shorten my actual internship time.

GREAT question! I think that most consulting companies (ex. Accenture, Deloitte, Price Waterhouse, McKinsey) have great programs, and then many of the traditional manufacturing companies also have great rotational programs (ex. Ford Motors or Proctor and Gamble)

Your college career services office will probably have some insights into this too!

I would search for a job fair where you can talk to different companies. This is where companies go to recruit new talent! I think that's your best bet. Dress up, bring your resume, bring questions and interview them.

Good luck!

What industry are you interested in? I have a background in hospitality and the major hotel chains have great training programs, Hyatt, Marriott, Four Seasons. I did the Four Seasons management training program and it really opened many doors throughout my career.

NBC Universal has a great one for new graduates from undergrad degrees. There's also many programs for post-MBA students- Comcast, AT&T, BoA, etc. Most larger companies have rotational type programs. Might be worth investigating further.

You can either start with the area of business that you are interested in, or you can search for companies with great training programs. One place to look is GlassDoor. This is a website where previous or current employees leave reviews about companies they worked at.
You could also check out SAP - this is a great global company with offices all over the globe, including US West Coast. Best of luck!

Hi there. This really depends on what field you're interested in. For example, if your goal is to want to be an engineer then you'd likely want to find a tech company with a good program. If you're interested in general business then Enterprise and Disney are both companies with reputable management trainee programs. I'm not sure if this helps but I recommend writing down a list of skills you want to learn. From there it'll be easier to find the right place for you :)

This is a two-step answer:

First, create a list of all "best company training programs" by Googling this search phrase;

Second, pick one co. name to research as follows: Example: Citibank

Then Google "Citibank in California Training Programs" and get results to follow up on.

Jack recommends the following next steps:

Review each search result for training information, contact info, etc.
Contact by email, social media, phone etc. to find out the application process to follow.
