Andree Joyaux, Recruitment Coordinator

ANDREE'S PICK: Masco Accelerated Career Experience (ACE) Program
APPLICATION DEADLINE: December 16, 2016

This is an excellent general business management opportunity!

ACE associates at Masco spend 2 years rotating through several business functions of this $8 billion, publicly traded, Fortune 500 company that designs, manufactures, markets and distributes home improvement and building products and is headquartered in Southeast Michigan. ACE associates rotate across three cross-functional business segments that are chosen based on the individual’s background and skills, career interests and the needs of the business. And as a part of a large national company, ACE Associates have the opportunity to work in multiple locations across the country. Business-segment options include: customer-facing units (Customer Service, Marketing or Sales), operations (Operations or Supply Chain) or support functions (Business Development, Finance or Human Resources). ACE associates spend a portion of the program rotating through each segment and building an understanding of various cross-functional processes, while developing general business and leadership proficiency.

For students interested in leadership development, management training, and exposure to all aspects of running a business, this rotational program provides a great opportunity to learn at a large corporation that’s made up of more than 20 individual companies and nearly 60 manufacturing facilities in the United States and more than 20 around the world.

I think these ACE associates could learn so much about so many functions across the company and have the opportunity to develop relationships with several managers and executives across the organization -- I say go for it!
