ICPF Partners With Students, Recent Graduates For Campus Outreach Over the years, and throughout the months of the pan- demic, the International Corrugated Packging Foundation (ICPF) has continued to leverage outreach, education and the recruiting of students and new graduates into the industry through unique partnerships. One of the most significant partnerships has been with students and new hires in the industry who have attended ICPF events and used ICPF resources to acquire internships and full time positions. For example, ICPF’s student advisory board members have provided valuable input on the establishment of ICPF’s “virtual” student/executive dialogue dinners and assisted with plans for converting ICPF’s Teleconference on the Business of Corrugated Packaging & Displays and the Careers into a virtual format.

of thousands of moving parts, each working in tandem and each with its own set of responsibilities and maintenance needs. Enter Helios, a Software as a Service solution that empowers box plant leadership to make more efficient and informed decisions around when to schedule down- time and order parts to prevent machine failure. All of these decisions were driven by and dedicated to customer needs. Finding solutions to their challenges is best achieved through the collective efforts and ex- perience of employees, from the leadership team to the service technicians. At SUN, decades of combined expe- rience in Operations, Distribution, Engineering, Planning, Industrial Engineering, Quality, and Purchasing -- and their abilities, talents, experience, and backgrounds reflect their commitment to offering complete solutions that customers can depend on.
ICPF also continues to recruit and work with designated ICPF student representa- tives on18 campuses who promote corru- gated packaging careers, participation in ICPF’s initiatives and the utilization of ICPF resources among their fellow students. ICPF’s industry mentoring program that matches ICPF selected students with stu- dents seeking internships or full-time posi- tions has also proved successful. Addition- ally, ICPF recruits exceptional students to serve as student program manager interns to provide assistance with its outreach to students. More on ICPF’s most recent stu- dent intern, Emily Anderson, follows: “My name is Emily Anderson. I am from Tampa, and just entered my senior year at Clemson University. I am pursuing a Bach- elor of Science major in Packaging Science with a Minor in Business Administration with plans of graduation this coming December 2022. “For as long as I can remember, I have possessed a creative mind and a curiosity about the inner workings of different sys- tems. I love hands-on experience to see how a product is developed from start to finish. So in my sophomore year after tak- ing an Introduction to Graphic Communi- cations and Packaging Science class for fun, I became fascinated by the elective. I immediately joined the Clemson Packaging Science Club to participate in club meetings and to network with professionals. I then applied to change my major from industrial engineering to packaging science, and was accepted.
