Doe Run Interns Gain Hands-On Experience in the Mining and Metals Industry – PR Web

The Doe Run Company (Doe Run) is pleased to share another successful summer with a near record-breaking number of interns.
This summer, 29 college-level students are receiving hands-on experience working alongside the company’s talented employees as part of The Doe Run Company’s internship program. The opportunity to learn outside the classroom and apply concepts is a great way for these young minds to prepare for their future careers in mining, engineering and geology.
This year’s intern class includes students from 15 colleges and universities in 10 states, including 16 students from Missouri schools. Internships are offered at Doe Run’s Southeast Missouri Mining and Milling Division, Exploration Department, Research and Technical Development Center, the Metals Division, and corporate office.
“The experience our interns receive outside the classroom is immeasurable. They learn day-to-day operations from some of the best in the mining business, including employees who were interns before they began working full time for Doe Run,” said Jan Lott, vice president – human resources at Doe Run. “We love seeing the growth and interaction between students and our team. It allows for new ideas and innovation in the mining and metals business.”
