Get Hands-On Experience Solving Real-Life Problems
Would you like to get hands-on work experience in your area of study? Work as part of a team as you solve real-life business or technology problems? We offer a variety of opportunities for interns, many of whom join Gore after graduation. If you join Gore as an intern, you have a much better chance of being hired by Gore for a permanent position once you graduate. Internships are a great way for you to evaluate us--and vice versa--to see if there is potential match for long-term employment.
As a Gore intern, you will own a project that can be wrapped up before you leave. It will call on your technical skills and will be a technical challenge. You will be encouraged to network and build relationships across functions and plants, as well as with other interns. We will provide you with some organized social and networking opportunities throughout the summer to help you get connected to other interns and Gore associates.
Please note: Gore generally does not consider candidates for positions who would require sponsorship of a visa to work in the United States on a continuing basis. As our internship program is designed to identify candidates for employment after their graduation we do not consider candidates for internship positions that eventually would require Gore to sponsor a work visa.

Because Gore is a technology-oriented manufacturer, our formal internships are nearly all focused on engineering and manufacturing operations.
For engineering internships, Gore is primarily seeking students majoring in areas such as Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, and Electrical Engineering majors.
For manufacturing operations internships, Gore is seeking students majoring in areas such as Industrial Engineering, Operations Management, and Supply Chain.
