Current Employee Testimonials
“Interning at Roseburg helped me achieve my current role by providing the opportunity to learn hands on with some of the most advanced people and equipment in the industry. Roseburg gave and continues to give me an incredible opportunity to excel in my career. Their commitment to the community and their core values sets an amazing example."
“The internship program with Roseburg was an incredible opportunity that enabled me to gain real-world experience. This program has equipped, encouraged and propelled me to grow as a young professional, which has lead me to discover new avenues of passion within my current role today.”
“I had the benefit of being a member of the Roseburg internship program three times. Throughout the summers I not only was able to gain work experience for school, but also was given the opportunity to improve upon my career applicable skills and to refine my ability to present myself in a professional setting. Each summer I was able to return to familiar faces and familiar tasks, but with increasing responsibility and expectations as well, for which the internship program helped prepare me. From this I was able to work as a technician during the school-year and maintain a good connection with Roseburg, which ultimately put me in the position to accept a job offer when I graduated school.”
“My internship with Roseburg Forest Products provided me with an excellent platform to grow an develop as a future leader. I was able to work hands-on with hourly employees and senior leadership alike, which ultimately prepared me to step into my current role as a supervisor with an edge that otherwise I would not have possessed.”
“Before becoming employed with Roseburg, I had spent two summers as an intern in the IT department, while attending OIT. My first two summers allowed me to get more experience in the networking and systems side of IT. After that, I then decided that I wanted to develop software instead, and was hired with Roseburg as a Software Developer after graduating from OIT in 2016. Working as an intern got my foot right in the door, and gave me the experience and the excellent opportunity for working here or anywhere else in the IT department.“
"Roseburg’s internship program offered me the opportunity to build real-world experience while being surrounded by knowledgeable and experienced professionals. I developed a skillset and knowledge base throughout my internship that proved invaluable to my professional development. I would not be in the role I am today if it were not for the opportunity Roseburg’s internship program afforded me.”
“My time as an intern here at Roseburg allowed me to challenge myself both physically and mentally. I was able to use my knowledge from school in the field to help make forest management decisions. I really love how much effort and time goes into developing interns here at Roseburg Forest Products. I think we have a great overall intern/mentoring program.”
My name is Kristian Lehtinen and I am working as an engineering intern at Roseburg’s Roanoke Valley Lumber (RVL) Mill. I am currently a rising senior attending school at Clemson University whilst studying mechanical engineering. Summer of 2023 is my second year working as an engineering intern at RVL. Outside of school and work, I am involved in several engineering organizations and intramural sports leagues. I enjoy the outdoors, such as fishing, hiking, biking, snowboarding, etc. I also enjoy spending time playing sports, guitar, and lifting weights.
I'm Christopher Acosta, an Engineering Intern at Roseburg Forest Products. Currently, I am a third year undergraduate student at Columbia University, pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering. My ultimate goal is to contribute to the aerospace industry, specifically in the realm of designing rockets and creating extraordinary space megastructures like a Dyson sphere. In my free time, I enjoy working out in the gym, experiencing cuisines from different cultures, watching movies or shows of interest, and taking on exciting projects. I'm thrilled to be part of the team, and I look forward to collaborating together and learning as much as possible from you all!
My name is Liam Cooley, for the summer I’ll be working as one of the Continuous Improvement Interns. I currently live in Knoxville, Tennessee, where I attend the University of Tennessee Knoxville (Go Vols) but I’m originally from the Pacific Northwest. I was born in Tacoma and lived in Washington State for the majority of my life so I love spending time outdoors. I use my spare time to read, go on camping trips, canoe, or really just any activity I can use as an excuse to get outdoors.

“Roseburg gave me the opportunity to work in a different department, exactly what I wanted to do to gain new experience and expand upon my previous [Roseburg] summer experience. I am confident and ready to enter my professional career, and in large part, I owe that to the opportunities given to me by Roseburg Forest Products.”
