Deployment Intern

We Are Hiring

Internship opportunity- St. Louis, MO

Are you a student looking to gain healthcare, analytical and supply chain experience? Our "Intern Where You Learn Program" is divided into three separate experiences:

Shadowing Opportunity with Current Intern
Once hired, the intern shadows the current intern at his/her university to gain a base level of experience for the
following areas: The Resource Group, the supply chain industry, and the university’s needs. This shadowing opportunity
also exposes the intern to a professional network of executive level professionals at their university. The intern is
then responsible for managing these relationships throughout their internship to ensure a valuable customer service


System Office: St. Louis, Missouri
Once the academic year is over the intern will move to St. Louis for their twelve-week System Office experience. In most
circumstances lodging for the intern will be taken care of. Upon arrival, the intern will be paired with a Senior Consultant
from The Resource Group’s Deployment Team to learn and develop the everyday skills of an Analyst. This will include
a week of travel with the Deployment Team to a Participant location as well as other exciting hands-on projects and
experiences. The intern will also be responsible for continuing to provide the GPO support to their respective university
as well as special projects.


Intern Where You Learn”
The third and final portion of the internship occurs throughout the academic year post-summer. The intern will work
part time (10-15 hours per week) in conjunction with the Deployment Team and university administration. In addition
to their regular tasks of supporting the GPO, the intern will continue to develop recruiting plans for the following year’s
intern. After completion of this internship, the intern is granted three class credits towards their degree.
