Salary is based upon the number of credits completed towards your degree. You must provide verification of credits, in writing, from your school, prior to assignment.

Co-op and internship programs are an important recruiting channel for IBM because they help us identify high-potential prospective employees. Participating students are often considered for repeat internships or a long-term commitment of regular employment.

What’s the difference

Internships and Co-ops allow students to apply their knowledge and expertise in their particular field, while gaining experience working for a global enterprise. The result is an experiential education that deepens the students knowledge and prepares them further for their chosen career.

An Internship is a short-term, supervised work experience in a student's field of interest for which the student may or may not earn academic credit. This is generally a one-time work experience for three to six months.

A Co-op is a partnership between the student, university and employer to provide the student with a rich learning experience in their chosen field of study. The length of Co-op experience is typically a semester plus a summer (ex. January to August or June to December).

Types of assignments

Each year IBM offers hundreds of internship assignments within our various business units and Career Paths. Find an opportunity with Watson using our Find your Fit tool.. Then, spend time talking with our recruiters, hiring managers and new hires when we visit your campus.

Why Intern at IBM

"A co-op with IBM turned into my entry to a great job as I joined IBM full time this year.  During my co-op, I learned a boatload of new technical skills - and a whole lot more!  The co-op with IBM was absolutely worth it.  It was a decision that has single-handedly affected my life after graduation." - Eric W.
