Previously, college students carved out a few hours during their spring break to search for summer internships. Locking in a coveted summer gig could wait until March or early April, however, times have changed and the competition has gotten steep.
Biotech company Thermo Fisher Scientific is getting a jump on their intern hiring now with an eye to hire about 200 interns for summer 2018. “Thermo Fisher Scientific offers best-in-class internships. We give you a true hands-
on experience, the opportunity to solve real-time problems, the chance to network with other interns from different backgrounds, exposure to senior leadership, and even opportunities to give back to the community,” reads their site.
Available to college students of all degree levels, successful Thermo Fisher internships can lead to direct hire positions upon graduation or an interview for their coveted Leadership Development Programs, which are available to new grads and offer on-the-job learning opportunities, mentorship and structured learning.
“The program helped me smoothly transition from academia into a business environment, and I gained a lot of technical knowledge from the start. This mentorship program advanced my career and allowed me to develop business acumen and leadership skills,” says one former intern, Taylor. “Through these mentorships, I was able to move into a new position in manufacturing. Now, as a manufacturing engineer I am helping to make sure customers are getting exactly what they ordered in an efficient and reliable way.”
Whether you’re looking at a career in genetic analysis, software engineering, research and design or marketing, an internship at Thermo Fisher is the best first step you can take.
