Think you can recognize different flavors of Skittles®, blow five-inch gum bubbles and demonstrate top-notch trick-or-treating skills? You would’ve qualified for our Confectionery Connoisseur internship!
Our 2018 Confectionery Connoisseur was Andrew Willett, a senior public relations and advertising student at DePaul University, who joined our team at the Mars Wrigley. headquarters in Chicago.
“I stopped everything I was doing and sent my resume the second I saw that post!” Andrew said in an interview with the Today Show, when they stopped by for an inside look at the world’s sweetest internship and all the fun Andrew had during his summer.
He got the opportunity to concoct a personalized batch of chewing gum, test new candy flavors created by Associates before they even hit store shelves, and took to the streets to hand out samples of the new Sweet & Salty flavors by Snickers®.
Of course, the internship involved much more than good tastes — Andrew also met with our business leaders across different departments, organized Mars Volunteer Program events, and contributed to our Instagram handle, @MarsWrigley. He got a great idea of what it’s like being a Mars Wrigley Associate, and the fun, innovative work environment of bright, energetic minds for which we’re known.
While we’ve built a reputation for creating some of the world’s most beloved confectionery brands, not everyone who works here tests candy and mixes chocolate! We’re also a global Food and Petcare company, with brands like Uncle Ben’s® and Tasty Bite®, and products for furry friends from Whiskas®, Pedigree® and Iams®. Our internship program features diverse opportunities all around the world, each tailored to provide interns with real-world Mars experience and skills to succeed.
