 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.

    I have been working at Shure full-time (Less than a year)


    A privately held company that actually cares about its associates. The work-life balance is perfect, and there are multiple avenues of advancement. People are amazing and belong in their roles.


    Considered a small company, so positional availability is limited. You need to be a high performer to continue employment here. The coffee machine may break, causing significant lines at the café.

    Advice to Management

    Keep expanding, keep growing, and don't forget to share more information concerning the company's overall health and wellness.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Shure (Niles, IL).


    There were multiple interviews via phone and in person. However, the process was very straightforward. No gotcha questions. The interviewers were all very calm and easy-going.

    Interview Questions

    • They focused, it seemed, more on my personality and interactiveness that anything. One question that stood out was about how I would deal with managing tenured personnel being a new manager.   1 Answer
