Internships may be in such areas as research, engineering, sales/marketing, accounting/finance, hospitality, photography, journalism and customer service.
We place an emphasis on matching students to internships that promote RLA's mission to educate and inform Reverse Logistics professionals around the world. RLA Interns will have direct exposure to hundreds of future employers.
