How to Apply

Application Process

In order to be considered for an internship, interested individuals must apply online at 3M Careers. Internship opportunities are typically posted each fall (September/October) for the following summer. Interested individuals can set up a profile to be notified when there is a job posted that matches his/her interests.   It is also recommended that students attend and speak to 3M representatives regarding internships at recruiting event(s) at his/her campus or professional conferences in which 3M participates. Please note, applications are reviewed on a rolling basis; it is in a candidate's best interest to apply early. 

Application Deadline

Positions are posted and candidates are identified both through the online process and through campus recruiting and national events in the fall for internships the following year. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis with most offers are extended in November or December of the prior year.  Please note that some internship programs do recruit in the spring as well as in the fall.
