To ensure you get the most out of your internship/co-op experience, you will be assigned a manager, a mentor, and a “buddy” dedicated to providing you with full support and guidance. This support system will monitor your progress, provide feedback, and ensure that you are getting the most out of your experience at Zebra.

Hear what our interns have to say about their experience as a Zebra intern/co-op.

​​“As this was my first real summer internship, my expectations were primarily that I would be able to see what the industry and corporate world was like in general. I almost immediately realized, however, that I was not going to be a passive observer – I was immediately assigned meaningful and engaging work.”
​​-Eric N., Firmware Engineering Intern (2008) and CAG Intern (2009)​​
​​​​“Overall, I felt that my experience here has reinforced my decision to become a mechanical engineer and my interest in design. I felt that the internship program at Zebra is well organized and the project I worked on was relevant to the company. I also feel that my time here was worthwhile and that my actions have benefited Zebra.”
-Chapin N., Mechanical Engineering Intern (2009)​​
​​​​​​​​​​​​​“I have gained valuable experience using Pro/Engineer. This experience has not only improved my ability to communicate design concepts, but also my ability to visualize and understand other design ideas.”
-Nick S., Advanced Development Mechanical Engineering Co-op (2009)​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
​​​​​“I feel that I have gained much more confidence and independence when it comes to my work. I have learned to solve problems and find solutions more independently first as opposed to asking for help right away.”​
-Corrine B., Technical Documentation Intern (2008)​​​​​​​​​

    I have been working at Zebra Technologies full-time


    Indirect sales and channel sales are a challenging and rewarding type of sell. I enjoy the work-life balance, team atmosphere and relationship building with clients.


    Moving ex-Motorola employees to Lincolnshire. They need to have a downtown office for all of the employees who live in downtown Chicago. Lincolnshire is too far away for commuters.
