Description

About Us: Gore is a materials science company focused on improving lives through discovery, product innovation and rewarding careers for our Associates.

We are an Enterprise that has always pushed the boundaries of what's possible - not just through our products and technologies but also through Associate growth and development. As Bill Gore once said, "Every time we learn a new skill, some new knowledge and take on a new responsibility, or a new kind of activity, we have promoted ourselves." In this spirit, we encourage Associates to explore outside their comfort zones and seek opportunities that are challenging and that help them reach their sweet spot and grow their contributions to the Enterprise.

About the Role: As a Gore intern, you will be responsible for driving one or more projects; some of which you may see through to completion during your internship. You will be encouraged to network and build relationships across functions and plants as well as with other interns. We will provide you with some organized social and networking opportunities throughout the summer to help you build connections with other interns and Gore associates.

Working within a multi-functional Information Technology team environment, you will be involved with projects that make a contribution to the technical group of associates who support a diverse information systems environment. We are looking for students that have excellent interpersonal communication skills, have demonstrated skills in critical thinking, problems solving ability, and who are self-motivated.

At Gore, we believe in you as an individual. We value your know-how and ideas. Our goal is to create a positive, respectful workplace in which everyone is treated fairly. If you are searching for a company where you can learn, contribute, and make a difference, we're looking for you!

Typical Job Opportunities

Management of Information Systems

The Management of Information Systems area of focus is on people, process and technology factors to help support digital business operations. Potential roles include IT Project Management, IT Quality Analysis/Testing, Analytics/Data Science, and Business Analysis.

The Infrastructure and Operations area of focus is on supporting the underlying technologies to develop, test, monitor, deliver and support IT Services. Potential roles could include Client Support, Service Desk, System Administration and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Development.

We expect our internship program for 2023 to include on-site and hybrid opportunities, which will vary by project.

As a reminder, Gore's intern program is intended to identify individuals for potential employment upon graduation and therefore requires that all candidates are authorized to work indefinitely without visa sponsorship within the U.S. after graduation. Gore does not provide sponsorship for visas to work in the U.S. for these roles. If you would require employer sponsorship to continue to work in the U.S. upon graduation, Gore would not be able to consider you for a position upon graduation, and therefore, we would ask that you withdraw from the interview process for a summer intern position.

An Optical Practical Training (OPT) is temporary employment that is directly related to an F-1 student's major area of study and provides up to 12 months of OPT employment authorization for students before completing their academic studies and/or after completing their academic studies. OPT does not provide authorization to work indefinitely without visa sponsorship within the U.S. Candidates relying on OPT for permission to work in the U.S. for an intern role would not have authorization to work indefinitely without visa sponsorship within the U.S. upon graduation and therefore, we would ask that you withdraw from the interview process for a summer intern position.

Required Qualifications:

* Enrollment in a B.S./B.A. or M.S./MBA program in Business Information Systems, Management Information Systems or majors in related disciplines with transferable knowledge and experience
* Successful completion of at least the sophomore year of college prior to the start of the internship and continued pursuit of your degree in the fall
* Enthusiasm and energy for IT in a manufacturing and operations environment
* Ability to commit to a (minimum) 10-week summer internship

* Drive and initiative; a self-starter
