Bechtel Plant Machinery, Inc. (BPMI) is seeking business/supply chain co-ops (contract professionals) for full-time, paid positions beginning January 2021 through August 2021 in our Monroeville, Pennsylvania, office. A co-op allows a current college student an opportunity to gain relevant, hands-on experience as part of their education.
Are you currently a college sophomore studying business or supply chain management? If you’re interested in gaining valuable career training working with industry professionals, consider applying for a BPMI co-op! The BPMI co-op program gives participants the opportunity to work in their field of study while simultaneously pursuing their bachelor’s degree at an accredited college or university. Co-ops can enhance a student’s academic training while teaching critical business skills and allowing them to learn about BPMI, the Navy, and the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program.
A co-op position generally results in a full-time employment offer upon completion of the program.
What You Can Expect:
Close Mentoring - Each co-op is assigned a unique sponsor for the duration of their BPMI experience. Sponsors assist the co-op in performing day-to-day efforts while providing a more in-depth perspective of how the various assignments fit into the overall business. Along with the co-op's manager, a sponsor also provides general guidance and training on BPMI’s business and operations.
Training - Co-ops are provided with training opportunities in various procurement skills such as procurement planning, budgeting, negotiating, developing and maintaining strong supplier relationships, and contract management.
Shipyard Tour - Co-ops visit Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia for a one-day shipyard tour. This unique and exciting opportunity allows co-ops to see and potentially tour aircraft carriers, submarines, servicing facilities, and other areas of interest. The tour allows our co-ops to gain a better appreciation of the important work BPMI does and the key role the Navy plays in protecting the interests of the United States of America.
