Building our future trailblazers

Project Impact

Reynolds American Inc. is passionate about strengthening its talent pipeline with diverse and highly skilled employees. Through the RAI internship program, undergraduate and graduate students can shape the future in a culture that empowers and encourages everyone to blaze new trails and challenge the status quo.

Throughout the 10-week program, interns lead a range of projects across numerous departments at RAI and its subsidiaries, including finance, research and development, consumer and trade marketing, operations, and many more. Interns are given the opportunity to exercise initiative, and to engage in creative problem solving, teamwork, and influencing — core skills that will help them thrive no matter where their careers may take them.

The 2016 group of interns came from various colleges and universities across the country. Most interns feel that their biggest takeaway is the valuable experience they gain in their fields, as well as knowledge on what it’s like to work within the RAI companies as a whole. We are proud that our 2016 interns rated their experience so highly that our program earned us placement on Vault.com’s Top 50 Internships list and #1 internship in Retail & Consumer Products internships overall.

Our internship program is more than just a summer job. The program is rigorous and, for the right candidate, it’s the start of a remarkable career. In fact, 17 of our 2016 interns joined RAI as full-time employees or for a second internship.

“Our goal is to recruit high-quality talent. The program allows interns to experience RAI both as a corporation and as an employer, through one of its subsidiaries. For our internships, we seek principled people who want to grow with us, be trailblazers, and ultimately be part of the transformation of our industry.”
Jim Floyd, senior director, talent acquisition
