As a student or recent graduate, you can begin your career at KCI by choosing the path that best fits you and where you are in your academics. There is a wealth of opportunity for bright, motivated students and young professionals with a variety of career and professional development options.
Internship. KCI’s internship and co-op program places students in a variety of technical and administrative positions each year. College and high school students benefit from the opportunity to build relationships, work with professionals, gain experience, and interact with management, all of which can help guide future career decisions.

Mentoring. This voluntary program provides new employees with the opportunity to receive professional guidance and support by building relationships with seasoned professionals throughout KCI. The transfer of skills and knowledge from experienced professionals to newer team members provides opportunities to network, a smooth transition, individual development and continuous learning.
Rotational Engineer/Scientist Program. This program provides recently graduated engineers exposure to the different disciplines within KCI. These employees broaden their knowledge base and build contacts across all technical disciplines within the company. Employees spend three months per discipline, have a set of established goals at each rotation, and have a designated mentor within the discipline.
In addition, there are many programs that are beneficial to every employee working at KCI.
The firm’s award-winning Wellness and Fitness Rewards programs establish a work environment that promotes healthy and safe lifestyles, decreases the risk of disease, and enhances the quality of life. The program has scheduled health awareness days, fitness and health incentives, fitness sponsorships, fun team and individual fitness challenges, and many educational resources.
The Companywide Employee Committee (CEC) consists of employees representing all offices and disciplines of the company. The mission of the CEC is to provide a forum to develop, evaluate and recommend employee ideas to upper management.
Each fall the staff selects an employee-led charity through our CEC. Charities such as the Make-a-Wish Foundation, the Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation have benefited greatly from the dedicated employee-led committees who develop year-long schedules filled with creative fundraising events.
