College Works Paintings Internship - Illinois
Company: College Works Painting
Posted on: September 25, 2022
College Works Paintings provides college and university students
a unique, life-transforming opportunity to build business
management and leadership skills, hands-on. The internship empowers
you to run their own local businesses, manage their own crew of
people, and provide a much-needed service within their communities
- while earning money as well as an invaluable experience. You will
not be a house painter, rather you will learn to be an entrepreneur
and business person.
College Works is the most intense learning opportunity you can
expect to experience during your college career, in or out of the
classroom. Our business model has proven successful for both our
company and the students who work for us, year after year. Come
with an open mind, an open heart and lots of energy.
We're looking for an entrepreneurial spirit. Don't have business
experience? Don't worry-that's why you're here. We will teach you,
mentor you, support you and we will help you succeed. How well you
succeed, however, is thoroughly and entirely up to you. You must
come with your own great attitude and values: integrity,
leadership, passion, drive, balance, honesty, and a desire for
growth, communication and challenge.
What you'll learn with us is real business, management and
leadership skills that you'll use the rest of your life. The
College Works Program is designed to expose you to and inculcate
you in sales, marketing, estimating, scheduling, supply management,
customer service, hiring (and firing), accounting and sales
You will receive daily mentorship:
--- Daily contact with your District Manager who was previously a
--- Continued guidance throughout spring training and summer
--- Help with planning, troubleshooting and goal-setting.
--- Will advise by asking questions, not giving answers.
--- Will push you past your comfort zone.
--- Will give you autonomy as you prove your skills.
Here's how we do it:
-Funding: College Works Painting provides the training and start-up
funds for you; you don't provide any up-front fees whatsoever. What
you do provide up front is your time and
the commitment to acquiring your summer's business in the
-Management: Your District Manager, who has previously excelled as
an Intern and has been invited to continue with the company, will
help you on a daily basis.
-Marketing: CWP provides all the organizational tools you need to
learn to run your own business. We also have a trove of collateral
materials that are available for you to use as part of your
marketing plan. (Plan the work and work the plan.)
-Equipment: CWP provides interns with safety equipment to ensure
employee safety on all projects. Small supplies like caulk and
brushes are bid into each job's miscellaneous costs. To transport
equipment most interns hire painters with a vehicle.
-Muscle. College Works has the painting contractor's license,
liability insurance and workers compensation insurance to ensure
that all of us comply with the local and state regulations for
running a business. Just because we've done the paperwork doesn't
mean it can be checked off your to-do list; you will also learn
about these aspects during your training.
-Networking: In addition to your District Manager and the Executive
Management team at College Works, you'll be working with other
Interns just like you. That means you'll be surrounded by (and
learning from) those who see themselves and the world the way you
do-as a place to work hard and excel. Chances are you will make
lifelong friends and business contacts here.
-A Proven Track Record: By the time you go back to school in the
fall, you'll have run your own business and gained the confidence
that it brings. Will your classmates be able to say the same thing?
Experience has shown that we provide the unique background that
employers are looking for. Once you complete CWP successfully,
you'll be in a select referral program to help with your post
graduation job search.
