    “The internship program with Roseburg was an incredible opportunity that enabled me to gain real-world experience. This program has equipped, encouraged and propelled me to grow as a young professional, which has lead me to discover new avenues of passion within my current role today.”
  • Andrew Hicks
    Western Regional Office – Forester I, 2015, 2016 & 2017 Intern

    “I had the benefit of being a member of the Roseburg internship program three times. Throughout the summers I not only was able to gain work experience for school, but also was given the opportunity to improve upon my career applicable skills and to refine my ability to present myself in a professional setting. Each summer I was able to return to familiar faces and familiar tasks, but with increasing responsibility and expectations as well, for which the internship program helped prepare me. From this I was able to work as a technician during the school-year and maintain a good connection with Roseburg, which ultimately put me in the position to accept a job offer when I graduated school.”
  • Beau Grauf
    Dillard Plywood – Quality Assurance Supervisor, 2015 & 2016 Intern

    “My internship with Roseburg Forest Products provided me with an excellent platform to grow an develop as a future leader. I was able to work hands-on with hourly employees and senior leadership alike, which ultimately prepared me to step into my current role as a supervisor with an edge that otherwise I would not have possessed.”
  • Tom Ziegler
    Springfield Corporate – Software Developer, 2014 & 2015 Intern

    “Before becoming employed with Roseburg, I had spent two summers as an intern in the IT department, while attending OIT. My first two summers allowed me to get more experience in the networking and systems side of IT. After that, I then decided that I wanted to develop software instead, and was hired with Roseburg as a Software Developer after graduating from OIT in 2016. Working as an intern got my foot right in the door, and gave me the experience and the excellent opportunity for working here or anywhere else in the IT department.“
