Stanford students are innovators, leaders and change makers. Companies that hire at Stanford are looking for a candidate with a strong desire to make a difference in the lives around them. Employers come back year after year because Stanford talent enhances their organization.

The Value of Internships

At Stanford, we value self-discovery and exploration. Internships play an important part in the Stanford student’s journey towards transforming their education into meaningful work. Internships are valuable opportunities for students to take their education outside of the classroom and learn about their prospective field of interest. Students have a strong desire for freshman internships and rotational programs. 64% of Stanford students graduating in 2014 reported completing 1 or more internships. 10% reported 4 or more!
