 Summer Internship Program

Shure summer internships provide real-world work experience for students as well as a foot in the door for our entry-level positions. Interns earn a competitive salary and are given ownership of meaningful projects that allow them to see the results of their hard work by the time they leave. During the program, managers and directors provide department overviews to help interns better understand the organization as a whole. Additionally, regular team-building events and fun outings give interns the opportunity to socialize and enjoy Chicago. At the end of the summer, interns present their projects to an audience of Shure Associates.

The best way to learn what it’s like to intern at Shure is to let our interns tell you themselves. To read about the experiences of recent interns, check out our blog post.

Our talent acquisition team visits select college campuses in the fall, but we welcome applications from all colleges and universities. Typically, we are looking for students who have completed at least two years of their undergraduate program and have previous internship experience. If you’re a musician with knowledge of Shure products, be sure to indicate this in your application. It’s not required, but it does give you an edge.

    I applied online through their career section. I received a call after a week or so for the first step of interview which was video interview on interview stream. I was asked around 7-8 pretty basic behavioral questions. But I think I didn't do it well So I didn't receive the call for the next step.
