Be an integral part of smart decisions that keep Intel on top of the technology industry.

Intel has exciting Operations Finance internship opportunities for undergraduate and MBA candidates and accounting internship opportunities for undergraduate candidates. As a member of the Finance intern team, you'll analyze business issues, recommend solutions, demonstrate your analytical and problem-solving abilities, and work with peers and business partners to influence decisions that maximize shareholder value.

More about the program

The Finance Summer Intern Program is a 12-week assignment within an Intel Finance group where interns undertake a challenging project designed to blend strategic and operational work. Your manager will provide you with a detailed project plan, meet with you regularly to provide support as needed, and help you network within the company to ensure an incredible internship experience.

You will also be assigned a controller-level mentor and peer level buddy, and you will attend frequent educational and fun events. Your internship will culminate with a high visibility presentation to senior management and the Intel Finance community, as well as to the operations group you support.

Intern projects are unique to the specific business need, but responsibilities may include:

  • Competitive analysis and recommendations
  • Capital affordability and should-cost modeling
  • Factory capacity analysis
  • Strategic project valuation and prioritization
  • Critical success metric development
  • Product pricing and benchmarking
  • Inventory valuation
  • New product development valuation
  • Strategic modeling
  • Cost reduction analysis

The benefits

Interns are considered valuable members of the Intel team and therefore may earn many of the benefits available to full-time employees, including:

  • Competitive salaries
  • Vacation and holiday time
  • Access to Intel University classes for professional and personal development
  • Networking with Intel managers and executives
  • Relocation benefits for those who must travel more than 50 miles to an Intel work location
  • Healthcare coverage option
  • Earned credit toward sabbaticals 

Requirements and skills

Intel offers one-year and two-year summer intern programs.  Intel Finance is looking for undergraduate and MBA candidates with graduation dates within the year following the internship, having a degree emphasis in finance, economics, or accounting, and a minimum GPA of 3.0.

Successful candidates should be able to demonstrate strong financial technical, problem-solving, influence, ability to develop knowledge of the business, teamwork, and communication skills. In addition, candidates must possess a firm  understanding of financial statements and their interrelationships; accounting and control knowledge is a plus. The ideal candidate will also have a demonstrated ability to deliver results quickly while working in a dynamic, cross functional, team-oriented environment.

Note: Students must be authorized to work in the United States without restriction*, and complete a required background investigation.

*Intel hires qualified applicants who are fully authorized to work in the U.S., i.e., individuals authorized to work without any time- or employer-related restrictions. People with temporary work authorizations, such as students in practical training status (i.e. F1 visa), will be considered only for positions where Intel is experiencing a demonstrated shortage of candidates with a particular skill. Intel cannot hire students from controlled countries and/or countries requiring export licensing.
