Job Description

*Program to start in June 2024*

The goal of the Olympus Corporation of the Americas Rotational Development Program (OCA RDP) is to develop and train early talent through targeted rotational assignments and learning opportunities in one of our many business units and functions.

Participants in the RDP will be immersed in hands-on training with functional subject matter experts and business leaders who will provide both mentoring and guidance throughout the program. This program is designed as a two-year rotation (three eight-month assignments) in a specific business area or engineering function. At the successful completion of the two-year rotational program, the RDP participant will be placed full-time in one of the relevant rotational function areas, as determined by business need and as directed by executive management.

Job Duties

The Rotational Development Program allows for a wide view of OCA business groups and shows the program participant how each area of the business function supports the overall company goals and strategies. Perform all other related duties as assigned. RDP participants will also participate in a series of learning activities centered around professional development and business acumen.
