Kimball International provides a robust internship program by offering college students exposure to our unique corporate culture and commercial office and hospitality furniture market expertise. During their time with us students are given valuable real-world projects to enhance the student's academic, career and personal development goals. Mentorship and engagement with experienced employees in the organization is encouraged and common. Students are also provided with opportunities to network and collaborate with other interns throughout the organization.

Students walk away with project experiences such as website design and development, market research and reporting, product modeling and design, graphic design, IT system analysis, operations management, and accounting.


Kimball International also offers a program designed for high school students to expose them to professional careers they might want to pursue. Students are provided opportunities to experience day to day activities of professionals in their selected career field, to ask questions pertaining to their chosen career paths and to develop professional relationships that may continue beyond high school. These internships are typically unpaid and part of a high school course. This program can be a productive pipeline to an internship.

"I liked that I was free to get away from my desk and work in different places. I liked that I was free to socialize sometimes. I liked that the feedback was positive and I never felt criticized when things needed to change."

"I came in looking for a manufacturing atmosphere with a focus on designing new products and Kimball International did an excellent job of placing me in this internship. The projects I was able to work on and the freedom to complete the projects were a very valuable experience."
