Employer Information: Southwestern Advantage and their Global Director of Campus Relations, Dr. Ralph Brigham, have been selected for the 2019 Charles F. Kettering Award. Each year, Cooperative Education & Internship Association (CEIA) recognizes one recipient of the Charles F. Kettering Award for excellence in industry, business, or government internship/cooperative education programs. CEIA is the national leader in cooperative education and internship program management.

This award comes with the distinction of being rated as the top rated internship/cooperative education employer in the nation. Southwestern Advantage joins a prestigious group of past winners including IBM, NASA, Walt Disney, AT&T, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Bloomingdale’s, Ford, and General Motors.

For over 150 years, Southwestern Advantage has offered a sales & leadership program that gives university students a way to afford their degrees, gain entrepreneurial skills, and build character. Each summer, a sales force of over 1,600 independent student reps market an educational learning system to families across the US & Canada.

University students in our sales & leadership program represent over 240 campuses in more than 20 countries around the world. We empower student reps with the tools, training, and coaching they need to build their own businesses and gain transferable life skills. Our product line of early learning, homework help, and SAT/ACT resources help millions of children excel academically and feel excited about school. Student Reps meet with families for short consultative visits to discuss education and show a line of websites, apps, and books that help families reach their academic goals.

The Employer in Residence program enables business students to interact with employers through booths, presentations, résumé reviews and more. Students can learn about industries, internships, and full-time positions. A different employer is featured each day throughout the school year.
