Check out our placement offerings & apply online.  If you're interested in a specific job, click Apply for Job. Go to the Your Candidate Profile page and either register as a New Candidate, or login as a Returning User. Then, upload your curriculum vitae (CV) or resume and cover letter (making sure your data is correct), and answer a few quick questions.

Intern Testimonials


My placement year at Intel exceeded my expectations. I've had numerous development and training opportunities, a high level of exposure to operational and project needs, visibility to the business environment and responsibility to develop and deliver initiatives with visible results.


The experience I can take from this year in industry is certainly invaluable and I'm certain that the credentials will help me secure a full-time job after graduating.


My confidence has increased and I now have a better idea of what I want to do when I graduate. I have met some great people and had a lot of fun over the past year.
