Developed by Sound Devices’ Vice President of Finance Lisa Wiedenfeld, the summer-long paid internship will take place at Sound Devices’ 27,000-square-foot facility at 7556 State Highway 23/33 in Reedsburg, where the company manufactures audio mixers and recorders, and video recorders for feature film, episodic television, documentary, news, and acoustical test-and-measurement applications.
“Wisconsin has a rich history of inventors, entrepreneurs and manufacturers. This program is our way to help carry on this tradition and foster a future of strong technical-minded people,” says Wiedenfeld, who worked alongside Jeff Hoeft of Sound Devices and Larry Judge at Reedsburg Area High School to start the program.
Following an application process, the company identified high-achieving students who are considering a career in engineering to receive hands-on training in the field. As part of the internship, the students will rotate through various roles within the company over the course of the next 11 weeks, including marketing, service repair and production. They will also gain exposure to Sound Devices products, company, industry and staff.
“We are excited to welcome these students to the Sound Devices family this summer,” says Matt Anderson, President of Sound Devices. “It’s a mutually beneficial opportunity, providing them with comprehensive grounding in their future careers while allowing us to cultivate the next generation of professionals working in our specialized industry. We look forward to helping them develop their interests, skills and knowledge of sound and video production.”
