IT Professional Apprentice™ (Co-Op)

This is not a standard Co-Op program. This is a Professional Apprentice Program that helps students acquire real-world skills that give them an added edge in the workplace. As one of the first large scale co-op programs developed in the Northeast Ohio area, we’ve also been recognized as one of the best! Our program has won awards and accolades throughout the years for providing meaningful work experience and the opportunity for students to build their professional portfolio.
Always an innovative concept, our program has matured into what is now referred to as The Professional Apprentice Program. We look for students with talent and enthusiasm to join our program and they are expected to perform at the highest levels, while maintaining high academic standards.
Information Technology typically offers over 70 long-term Professional Apprentice positions to students who are willing to commit until graduation and at least one year or more to the company. Students work part time hours (15-28 hour/week) year-round and are able to continue with the program up to six months after graduation. A wide variety of positions are available in the following areas: Infrastructure, Corporate Applications, Internet Services, Security, Client Services, and many more.
We treat our students as we would our full-time employees. They are given feedback regarding their performance regularly and they participate in the year-end review process. In addition, the Professional Apprentice Program has a dedicated Career Engagement Representative who coaches students and requires that they be informed of development and training opportunities. Also, we assign our students a mentor to direct them through their first professional experience.
As part of the Sherwin-Williams Professional Apprentice Program, students are given opportunities to network with influential business leaders, as well as with other students within and outside of Sherwin-Williams.
Our ultimate goal is to provide students with a meaningful work experience while they are contributing to the success of the business.
