We offer 14-week, paid summer internships that allow students to gain valuable career experience. Our interns participate in active projects and explore the career opportunities available in our many highly technical and specialized departments.
Many interns develop lasting relationships with their mentors and return for multiple summers. Some interns even continue to work part-time during the school year. Since program inception, over 40 interns have returned to JT4 after graduation to start their professional careers.
How to Apply
The application window has closed. Please visit us again next January.
