Job Description

FCA US LLC College Intern Program offers a unique opportunity for highly motivated, innovative, and inspired individuals to work in a challenging assignment where contribution, teamwork, and communication are vital to the success of the organization. As a leading-edge company, we can provide real world challenges and rewarding intern experiences to candidates from a variety of colleges and universities while providing a competitive salary.

Interns are assigned to an organization department based on the candidate's background, skill set and interests. The assignments are project-oriented, meaningful to the department and will allow you to take responsibility for major tasks. Interns experience a sense of personal accomplishment and contribution and experience the corporate business culture through work assignments and structured activities. You will gain the communication and etiquette skills required in business while sharing knowledge gained from your recent academic courses. You will also enhance your computer skills and learn new systems and software.

Each Intern assignment consists of challenging projects with specific goals, providing opportunities for personal growth and development. Interns that demonstrate outstanding qualities may be invited back the following year for a second internship or offered full-time positions in our various new hire programs. Summer internships are primarily located at the FCA US Headquarters and Technology Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan, other facilities in the Detroit Metropolitan area, and Business Centers located throughout the United States. Interns may qualify for a housing allowance and/or travel assistance. During the internship, you will have the opportunity to participate in many activities designed specifically to enhance your knowledge of FCA, our brands, and the metro Detroit area.

Interns within Product Marketing will assist in developing marketing and brand strategies through assessment of customer aspirations and the analysis of the competitive environment. They will also help identify and develop marketing plans consistent with customer attitudes and values to achieve business goals. In addition, the Intern will coordinate buyers' demographics and research while obtaining knowledge of product and customers.

Interns within Product Planning will directly support their respective product team. They will be assigned to a project based on vehicle line segmentation to be identified at the time of hire. Depending on the segment supported, the intern will be involved in current and/or future program initiatives to help determine product content and scope. Roles will include benchmarking current and future competitive vehicle actions and extensive analysis and synthesis of customer data to help guide the development of a product plan.

Interns Will Be Able To Experience Being a Part Of One Of Our Unique Portfolio Of Distinctive Brands That Meet The Needs And Expectations Of Customers And Enthusiasts Around The World

Ram: Ram is a dedicated truck brand that stands for dependability, capability and efficiency with a strong core market in North America and a fast growing presence internationally. Since its launch as a stand-alone division in 2009, the Ram brand has emerged as a key player in the industry with the award-winning all-new Ram 1500, the longest lasting line of heavy duty trucks and a full range of light commercial vans -- all Built to Serve.

Passenger Car: Chrysler is the American brand that invented the minivan and continues to stand for innovation, efficiency and functionality.

Fiat is our mass-market brand primarily focused on small and compact cars with a distinctive Italian style. Founded in Italy in 1899, Fiat is rooted in a more than century-long tradition of designing and making small cars, many of which have become icons for entire generations and accompanied Italy's major economic and social transformations.
