Worthington Industries operates under a long-standing corporate philosophy rooted in the Golden Rule, with earning money for its shareholders as the first corporate goal. As a market leader in metals manufacturing for nearly 60 years, we put people first, whether they’re our employees, shareholders, customers or suppliers. We’re looking for individuals who share our people-first philosophy and can help us continually innovate and grow through their insights, leadership and unique talents.

Worthington Industries (NYSE: WOR) is a global metals manufacturer serving growing end markets including automotive, construction, energy, agriculture, alternative fuel and many other markets. Our family of 10,000 employees in over 80 facilities throughout 10 countries has helped us earn the respect of our customers, our communities and our industry. With sales of approximately $ 3 billion annually, our company has been recognized by FORTUNE magazine as a “Most Admired Company” and four times as a “100 Best Companies to Work For.”


The Communications Intern will work as part of a team in communicating company messages internally and externally to specific audiences. This position will assist in the areas of employee communications, research and content development for newsletters, websites and social media . The ideal candidate has excellent writing and communication skills who can easily juggle multiple assignments at once and can effectively interact with all levels of the organization.


The Worthington Industries Summer Internship Program is designed to help our interns develop professional skills through on-the-job experience. 

During the 12-week program, interns will spend 80 percent of their time completing a business-driven project. These assignments could range from generating ideas for product improvement, to creating new processes, to developing a standardized playbook for a specific role within the Company. Upon graduation, each intern will present their project to their manager, mentors and members of senior leadership.

The interns will spend the remainder of their time receiving additional on-the-job experience and classroom learning. Classes will feature topics from general business etiquette, to resume writing, interviewing and presenting with confidence.

In keeping with Our Philosophy, the program will also feature a community service component. Last year our interns spent a day at the Salvation Army Food Pantry.
