Sonoco’s Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is a selective program designed to identify Sonoco’s next generation of business leaders. The ELP has been at Sonoco for more than 40 years, and the majority of our business leaders began their career at Sonoco in the Emerging Leaders Program. There are two types of positions within the ELP: summer internships and full-time opportunities. ELP summer internships at Sonoco are approximately 12 weeks in duration, project-based and hands on so students can gain real world experience and provide meaningful ROI for both Sonoco and our interns. ELP full-time positions are more than just a first full-time job at Sonoco - for the first 12-18 months of their employment with Sonoco, ELP full-time associates have additional, built-in access to team building activities with their cohort, dedicated mentorship, and ongoing leadership development programming. Our diverse portfolio of businesses provides opportunities across our multiple business units, integration into Sonoco’s culture, and the opportunity to make a true impact from day one. Wherever your path ultimately leads you at Sonoco, through the Emerging Leaders Program your future at Sonoco starts here!
