Internship Program

Our summer internships provide ambitious undergraduates the chance to gain real world experience in their field of study. You will be a part of a collaborative,cross-functional team and benefit from direct mentorships, lunch-and-learn events and a myriad of networking opportunities. Being a good corporate citizen is an important part of the Donaldson culture, so our interns also volunteer at charitable organizations.

Internship positions are posted from September-October. We encourage candidates to apply online at our Careers page. Our recruitment teams also visit various college campuses in September and October; potential candidates are interviewed by phone and selected candidates are invited to an onsite interview. Offers for the summer internship program are made in early November.
