You can’t run a car without tires, and that’s what Bridgestone has built its reputation on. Bridgestone, a leader in tire and related technologies, traces its roots to 1900 when Harvey S. Firestone established The Firestone Tire and Rubber Company. In 1988, the company was purchased by Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd, founded in 1931 by Shojiro Ishibashi. Today, Bridgestone Americas belongs to an international family of companies that operates 52 production facilities and employs over 50,000 people in the United States.
The company thinks of its interns as full-time employees, working alongside full-time staff in the human resources, IT, legal, marketing, finance and engineering departments. Besides an orientation process, other activities include a “Back to School” lunch and a meet and greet with the Bridgestone CEO. About 10 percent of interns are offered full-time positions after graduation.
Open to all college students and grad students. Qualifications vary by department.
