WTDC Newsletter – October 17th, 2023
Fall is in the air this week! We have decided to open three internship positions for students this fall. Operations and Customer Service Intern Brianna Page started this week. We have been so impressed with the qualification and preparation of students we have met through FIU College of Business and the South Florida Logistics Career Fair.
Over the last 15 years, WTDC’s Internship program has introduced over 125 students to the world of logistics. While cultivating their professional skills, students in-turn bring fresh ideas to our company.
