Here at Nestlé USA, you are empowered to become a student of the business and deliver the best to our consumers. We’re inviting forward-thinking and courageous future leaders to embrace an entrepreneurial approach and start their journey of growth.

If you’re a current technologist and analytically focused graduate student eager to make an impact on an enormous scale, take strides into greatness by joining Nestlé USA.

What to Expect 

Our 12 week paid internship with the Digital Acceleration Team is an opportunity to drive high-visibility, high-impact global outcomes for Nestlé. The environment will challenge you to think differently about problem solving and is a phenomenal way to get a feel for working at Nestlé. You will have hands on involvement with a significant business project from start to finish and get experience you won’t find in the classroom. You will apply the analytical and coding knowledge you have gained in school in a real world setting, while being supported by a team that includes a project manager, buddy, and mentor. You will have an opportunity to develop your professional network and extend your own portfolio of work.

Our projects are challenging, engaging and represent current business challenges that need a fresh perspective. You showcase the work you have done on your project at an end-of-internship presentation to senior leaders in the Digital organization. The internship experience also provides interaction with senior management and collaboration with team members across the business.

Interns experience life at Nestlé in a hands-on environment. We encourage students to question why we do things the way we do, provide fresh ideas, and improve processes and products. You’ll be part of the action and working from day 1.
