Matt | Mississippi State University
“My internship at GP was a great opportunity to experience what it is like to work in a manufacturing organization. I learned a ton about how the products we use every day are made, and the role that the accounting organization plays in those processes. Since I started at Georgia‐Pacific as a full time employee, I have had many different opportunities to continue learning and to apply my knowledge in ways that contribute to the company. I also feel that I have been surrounded by talented people who are committed to helping me succeed.”

Amber Arthur| Auburn University
“My internship last summer with the treasury team was nothing less than amazing. Everyone with whom I came in contact helped me to not only grow my technical skills, but also grow professionally. The hands‐on experience that I received allowed me to return back to school my senior year, ready to put what I learned into practice. What I enjoyed most during the internship program was the networking, both within GP and amongst the other interns. However, being offered a full‐time opportunity at the end of the program triumphs it all. I am still so thankful to be able to start my career with a remarkable company and team.”
