At this time last year I was still playing beach volleyball. This year I’ve already worn gloves. There’s no doubt about it–it’s soup weather. While I’m not really a soup guy, I’m sure a lot of you are excited about this development. It’s nearly impossible to think about soup without thinking about Campbell’s. They have one of the most recognizable brands in the world, but somewhat surprisingly the Campbell Soup Company brand goes well beyond soup. The Camden, NJ based company call itself “the world’s leading maker and marketer of soup,” but they also own brands like Prego, Pace, Pepperidge Farms, Swanson, and V8. In addition to those, they have some major European and Asia Pacific brands. When you add them all up, you get a company that generates over $7 billion in annual revenue.
Campbell Soup Company is separated into three divisions according to their Wikipedia article (this is a great source for background information on the company including its history): simple meals, baked snacks, and health beverages. Not all of the company’s products fit neatly into one of those categories, but it gives you an idea of where their priorities are. If you really want to dig into the Campbell Soup Company, I recommend that you go straight for their Investor Relations Site. This stuff isn’t easy to read, but it will help you understand the business–and being able to do that is essential if you want to land a job with them. So what about Careers at Campbell Soup Company? They make it easy in that they have a University Recruiting page that links directly to their entry level opportunities. It’s so easy that I’m not going to list the jobs out here, but there are opportunities in areas like Brand Management, Sales, Supply Chain/Buying, Finance, Manufacturing, IT, Procurement, and QA/Research & Development. Many of these positions are at Campbell Soup Company locations outside of New Jersey.
