While departmental offerings vary, areas that have hosted
interns in the past include global finance (including accounting),
global marketing, U.S. marketing, HR, IT, technical operations and
numerous areas within research and development. Interns are
given an overview of the company's structure, products and brands,
exposed to senior management and business leaders, and given
networking opportunities and formal review/feedback sessions.
Internship candidates must be current MBA or college students
graduating in the next calendar year (in most cases). In
addition, students must be authorized to work in the geographic
area for which they are hired.
