MIT and Internship Programs
The Marketing Manager in Training (MIT) program and the Internship program are both valuable opportunities here at Rich’s. Rich’s makes these programs unique by welcoming you in to our culture and receiving on-the-job work experience. You won’t be watching someone else doing the job or making copies all day. We are looking for young professionals who want to get a true experience in their field of study. Whether you are in school and looking for an internship or recently graduated and looking to accelerate your career, we invite you to learn more about each program.
The MIT program is an innovative program designed for recent Marketing graduates to obtain a fulfilling experience here at Rich Products. This fast track management program takes participating associates through seven rotations including, beginner marketing, customer service and logistics, food service, bakery sales, market research, product life cycle, and advanced marketing. It takes two years to complete, but each rotation varies in duration, and gives an MIT associate an integrated and diverse skill set in the field of marketing. This program also incorporates a senior level mentor to guide you through the process. Graduates of the program have the opportunity develop in to an associate marketing manager position after they have successfully completed the program.
The MIT program is relatively new, but has already produced four graduates and currently has two associates in the program.
One of these associates, Lauren Lopez, received her bachelor’s degree from Geneseo College and her MBA from the University at Buffalo. She started her career at Rich’s as an intern and was selected to join the MIT program. Lauren feels one of the most essential things she has gained from this program is an internal network at Rich’s. She now has many contacts in the company which will help in her career. “The program is a great foundation to diversify your marketing skill set and build upon managerial skills,” said Lauren.
Krista Corigliano is another associate in the MIT program. Krista is a graduate of Geneseo College and has her bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing. According to Krista, the MIT program “is a great opportunity for learning and growing in your professional career.”
The MIT program is a great opportunity for ambitious associates in the marketing field that are looking to accelerate their career and develop their skills.

How do you distinguish yourself from your college classmate who are taking the same courses and getting the same degree that you are going for? You obtain valuable internship opportunities – as many as you can!
Rich Products can offer you that unique experience through the various internship opportunities that are available throughout the year. Although we do not have a formal internship program in place, internships are typically available in the areas of communications, customer service & logistics, finance, information systems, legal, human resources, marketing, and research & development. Credit bearing internship opportunities are available year-round in communications and HR. The internship experience varies depending on the department, but all offer a unique opportunity in the corporate work force for undergraduate and graduate students.
One of our interns in the communications department is Rob Crowley, a senior at Buffalo State College majoring in Public Communications. At Rich’s, Rob is gaining hands on experience in various disciplines including public relations, organizational communications, and media relations. His main duties involve writing articles for Rich’s intranet, updating/writing information for Rich’s website, crafting press releases, and working on public relation campaigns, including helping with one of Rich’s important community initiatives, the company’s annual United Way campaign.
While the described duties highlight Rob’s main responsibilities, things change from day to day (one of the things Rob loves most about his internship experience!). Rob is often given new responsibilities, which is another thing he likes about Richs. “I am so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to learn and gain skills in the field I am entering after graduating from college. You can’t get this type of experience just going to class.” When asked why Rich’s is such a great place to do an internship, Crowley added, “Rich Products gives you hands on experience in your field and makes you feel like what you do is truly important. The culture and environment makes you feel like you are part of a family and your presence and commitment is appreciated.”
