College Works Paintings Internship - Illinois

Company: College Works Painting
Location: Chicago
Posted on: September 25, 2022

Job Description:

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 territory organization.
You will receive daily mentorship:
--- Daily contact with your District Manager who was previously a successful Intern.
--- Continued guidance throughout spring training and summer work.
--- 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 spring.
-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.
