Southern Automation Logistics & Technology (SALT) seeking Georgia Southern Interns for Software Development and Marketing

Internships are a vital part of every college student’s climb to success; most majors require internships to graduate, but all majors encourage students to have an internship while enrolled. Internships allow you as a student to learn beyond the confines of the classroom: they offer a chance for you to “get your hands dirty” and meet prominent employers. In fact, Forbes recently released statistics showing that 60% of internships result in job offers, allowing you to graduate with a plan in a business you know well.

Georgia Southern has partnered with many companies throughout Georgia and beyond to enhance the knowledge and confidence that their students continue to graduate with through those internships. While each school within the university has different guidelines and requirements, students are eligible to apply for any available internship  and if they are successful in landing the position, their hours earn credit towards graduation. The University itself offers many internships and also advertises opportunities with companies in the surrounding area.

One of those partnering companies is Southern Automation Logistics & Technology (SALT), right here in Savannah. SALT is partnering with Georgia Southern  “to help pair up the creative energies and raw talent of our apprentices with seasoned experience of our technology leaders in order to execute innovative solutions for companies in our own backyard.”

SALT is still fairly new to the game, being founded in 2020, but has already established itself as a successful technology-focused business. They collaborate with both industry and academia to bring to light new innovations in technology and allow these new ideas to be accessible and grow. The variety of internships available at SALT allow Georgia Southern students in many different focuses to step into the world of technology and explore their talents.
