Launched during the summer of 2013, DMS has been committed to offering workplace experience to qualified students interested in learning about the manufacturing industry in a marketing capacity. While DMS is planning on opening up the program to other departments in the future, the current Internship Program is offered only to marketing and design students who will work alongside the Sales & Marketing Department at the DMS World Headquarters at 1068 Elkton Drive in Colorado Springs, CO.
This summer-long experience is available to students eligible to receive course credit through a college or university, who want to learn about video editing, social media marketing, blogging, photography, graphic design, web design, trade show and event marketing, inbound marketing and more. The intern will assist with marketing functions for Diversified Machine Systems and our subsidiary brand, Freedom Machine Tool, as we continue to grow nationally and internationally to award-winning acclaim.
Each summer or internship term is unique, since students work side-by-side with the DMS In-House Team on upcoming events, media outreach and opportunities and occasional statewide exposure, such as when Senator Michael Bennet recently visited DMS as part of his Colorado Innovation Tour. Each student has the opportunity to showcase their work and expand their portfolios, as well as being the focus of a PRWeb press release published about them and their career goals.
“It’s important, especially in a competitive employment environment, that students get to learn what it takes to get results on a marketing team,” says DMS Director of Marketing, Courtney Thurman. “It’s always to our benefit to commit time to educate the manufacturing leaders of tomorrow - marketing people included.”
Last year, DMS signed a standing agreement with Pikes Peak Community College to offer this program to their Graphic & Multimedia Design students, to great success. Diversified Machine Systems is looking to expand on that collaboration with other colleges as well as make it available to individual students.
