Internships here involve far more than fetching coffee.

As an intern with us, you’ll be doing a lot more than just fetching coffee—our co-ops work on real-life projects and viewed as a true partner to the company.

You don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s what some of our past interns said about their experience.

Kenneth, Engineering Co-op
When I first started this internship I expected to work on small, easy projects in a supporting role while learning about the design process. While some projects were in support of other people, every project I worked on proved to be challenging, and taught me a lot about working in the industry, the design process, and team work.

Samantha, Human Resources Co-op
This internship has provided me with more hands-on learning opportunities than the classroom has ever had. Between the people I have worked with and the projects I have participated on, my skillset has expanded far beyond the job description I signed up for.

Craig, Engineering Co-op
At Bobcat Company, you are treated as a member of the team. People are always available to help you learn and grow with the company. My internship was a great opportunity for me to gain real-world work experience and show Bobcat Company what I was capable of. The value of the work experience goes well beyond the limitations of a classroom setting and really prepares you for your future field.

Syver, Attachments Co-op; Training Co-op
I took this internship to gain more hands-on experience with Bobcat equipment, as well as learn more about competitors’ equipment. I gained valuable knowledge and a better understanding of the machinery industry that definitely helped me in my career path.

Cale, Marketing Co-op
My experience at Bobcat Company has been a variable one; between international projects with Doosan products and national correspondence with our brand's dealers, I have been involved in meaningful project work in every sphere of the company. The importance of my work had observable and measurable impacts and added indisposable experience and work to my portfolio. I even found myself applying for an extension and the year I have spent here has rewarded me for my hard work.
