Since the 1990’s, M.E. GROUP has facilitated an internship program for college students; a program built to guide and mentor future leaders. As of the summer of 2018, M.E. GROUP has 12 full-time employees who took part in a company internship. An opportunity where questions are encouraged and daily engagement with professionals is the norm, an internship with us is where a career is begun.
