Internship Program

If you are looking to hit the ground running, the Frederick Group’s Internship Program will help you build valuable business and leadership skills. For a university/college student, the real-world professional experience you’ll receive during the internship will help you stand apart from the crowd and will be more than just a line on your resume. 

As an intern, you get a chance to work side by side with accomplished industry professionals. Interns at the Frederick Group provide a fresh perspective on client issues and create innovative solutions that help the Frederick Group be effective. 

We are a hands-on firm! The Frederick Group provides a high energy environment for a wide variety of talented people who are working to start their careers and make a difference in Michigan. Our interns are the most important people at the Frederick Group because they represent our future. We seek self-motivated, professional intern candidates who can work independently and are not afraid to ask questions. 

Interns are expected to hone their networking skills; interns build their professional and networking skills that open doors before and after graduation. In addition, our interns will be expected to participate in public presentations, lead projects, and prepare themselves for post-college employment.
