Summer Internship Opportunities at Proctor & Gamble
P&G internship offers the opportunity to experience all that we have to offer - our work, our people, our values, and our culture. We believe there is no better way to learn about these things than to participate in them first hand. And that's just what you'll do as a P&G Intern! The internship is a 10-12 week commitment and will provide a broad spectrum of experiences. P&G generally seeks to hire individuals that are in good standing at their university and/or field of study, this typically means people with overall GPA of 2.75 (on 4.0 scale) or above. At P&G, Internships are considered temporary employment, with a predicted ending point. No full-time employment commitments are made; however, depending on satisfactory completion of certain criteria, candidates may be considered for full-time positions upon graduation. Finance and Accounting Internship (Job #: FIN00002632) Our intern assignments are real work designed to allow you to experience, first-hand, the type of work we do within P&G. As an intern, you can make an impact on the business as well as continue to build your analytical, technical and leadership skills. You'll have an individualized work plan that will guide you throughout the summer and you'll get coaching from your immediate manager throughout your internship. We are looking for candidates in their junior year of an undergraduate or MA/MS degree program in Finance or Accounting or a First year MBA student in Finance or Taxation. Human Resources Internship (Job #: HR 00002018) Human Resources projects provide exposure to current issues facing P&G Corporate HR Departments and/or operating business groups. A unique aspect of our internship program is the managerial training experience that is part of the internship.
