PLMA Group PhotoThe Marketing & Logistics Department of the Coggin College of Business invites interested current students to participate in a unique, structured and immersive educational program: The Private Label Manufacturers Association’s (PLMA) University Outreach Student Program. They offer selected students an all-expense paid trip to their annual trade show in Chicago, IL. The Trade Show represents a huge variety of products including food and non-food. Selected students will experience first-hand the American store brand business through a weekend of university-level classes, special events, store tours and real-time participation in the retailer-exhibitor interaction on the trade show floor.

 

Once the Marketing & Logistics Department selects the four students, we will meet with the students once or twice - as needed- to help in finalizing their applications before its sent to the PLMA (1-2 hours). In this(ese) meeting(s), we will go over professional meet and greet tips, creating/sharpening your LinkedIn page and resume, etc. We would like to help prepare you as best as we can so that you can shine in the event. PLMA makes the final selection from the top students nationwide for their event and notifies us if we made the cut.

Travel, lodging, transportation, etc. will be arranged on your behalf and your expenses paid by the PLMA. You will be accompanied by UNF faculty.
