Upcoming Graduates

As upcoming college graduates preparing to enter the workforce, get firsthand experience with Gore’s people, values, processes and culture, as you work on small teams to create products that improve lives.


Completing college and entering the workforce can be a daunting process. As you finish your studies, consider taking the first step in your career by applying for a position with Gore, a global enterprise focused on improving lives.

Who We’re Looking For

Each year, we seek students in their final year of school for a select number of engineering-, manufacturing operations- and supply chain-focused positions. We partner with colleges across the U.S. to interview selected applicants, and also welcome upcoming graduates from non-partner schools to apply.


Gore requires all applicants to be eligible to work within the U.S. on a continuing basis and will not consider candidates for employment who currently are on a Visa or require Visa sponsorship, unless otherwise noted on the position description. This includes B.S. or M.S. new graduate applicants.


Because Gore is a technology-oriented manufacturer, our opportunities for upcoming graduates are nearly all focused on engineering and manufacturing operations.

  • For engineering positions, Gore is primarily seeking upcoming grads with B.S. and/or M.S. degrees in areas such as chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science, bioengineering/biomedical engineering and electrical engineering.
  • For manufacturing operations positions, Gore is seeking upcoming grads with B.S. and/or M.S. degrees such as industrial engineering, supply chain and operations or engineering management.

PhD or Post-Doctoral Candidates

We hire a select number of PhD and post-doctoral candidates each year for science/technology and product manager positions. We look for candidates with degrees such as bioengineering/biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, statistics and materials science.

Positions requiring a PhD, with or without prior industry work experience required, are posted on our website as opportunities become available. The best way to find these opportunities is to search our open positions.
