The International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) mission is to generate a stream of increasingly qualified students to enter the corrugated industry, now and into the future.

ICPF is dedicated to the continuation of:
  • Creating and building partnerships throughout the education community,
  • Assisting in the placement of equipment and other resources to advance curriculum,
  • Expanding student internships within the industry,
  • Promoting corrugated career opportunities for packaging, graphic design, marketing & sales, business, retail, finance & accounting, supply chain, industrial design, environmental science, engineering, tech and related graduates.

ICPF offers access to speakers from the corrugated industry for classroom discussions, forums or other engagements. To contact us regarding a speaker, click here.

The Career Portal portion of ICPF's website additionally provides a listing of available internships and entry level positions in the industry to which students and recent graduates can directly apply online. Since the free Career Portal is regularly visited by industry recruiters, upcoming and recent graduates are encouraged to post their resumes there as well. Not only has the portal been a successful tool for students to acquire internships and new graduates to secure careers, it is a successful resource for firms in the industry.  Over the past several years, almost 90% of the openings posted there have been filled by a combination of direct application through the career portal, use of its resume bank and ICPF's Corrugated Packaging & Displays Career LinkedIn Network. 

ICPF encourages students seeking internships, upcoming graduates seeking careers, and ICPF's corrugated corporate partners to visit and use the portal on a regular basis.  It is a tool that has been proven successful, time and time again. 

ICPF also encourages students and upcoming graduates to join ICPF's Careers in Corrugated Packaging LinkedIn Network that additionally has been successful in matching students and upcoming graduates to openings in the corrugated packaging & displays industry.  Simply email ICPF at and request to be included in ICPF's careers in corrugated social network for students & upcoming graduates
