ERA Announces the Introduction of the ERA White Pin Intern Program
The Electronics Representatives Association (ERA) is pleased to announce the establishment of the ERA White Pin Intern Program.
The ERA White Pin Group has recognized the need of the rep community to help attract, hire and retain college graduates into the rep model to keep the electronics industry fresh and relevant.
This intern program is designed to offer rising college juniors or seniors an opportunity to work for a manufacturers’ representative firm over the summer months to gain a better understanding and hands-on experience of the electronic components industry.
Mark Motsinger, Executive Director of the ERA White Pin Program and President/Owner of Wallace Electronic Sales, commented: “ The White Pin Group is thrilled to announce this great program for both our industry and for ERA rep members. We have been working hard to expose our best and brightest students to the electronics industry and give them the opportunity to gain valuable work experience. The White Pin Intern Program will hopefully help ERA rep members to continue to attract the next generation of leaders.”
Walter Tobin, ERA CEO, added, “Mark’s leadership in driving this program to fulfillment has been most impressive. His enthusiasm and the support of the White Pin organization will help both ERA members and our industry continue to grow and thrive.”
