Every student deserves to pursue a career that fuels their passions and embraces their strengths. Whether you have your path all planned out or are still figuring out what interests you, your future employer just might be the Nestle Purina PetCare Company. Nestle Purina has an abundance of job opportunities right here in Greater St. Louis, or you could even follow your professional dreams nationally and globally. Want to hear more?

In that case, you are a perfect fit for DAP’s EXPLORE PAWsibilities program! Through this program, high school students get to spend 2-3 half-day sessions with a diverse group of mentors at Nestle Purina, with ample time for networking and learning together. You’ll find that your program guides are working in a wide array of disciplines, such as: veterinary science, manufacturing, engineering, human resources, information technology, marketing, business management, corporate communications, and more!

Through the EXPLORE PAWsibilities Program, Nestle Purina is inviting local high school students of color to consider bringing their talents to the company. You don’t need to have twelve cats to be invested in making the world a better place for pets (although it probably couldn’t hurt, right?) 

Participation in EXPLORE is free of charge
