About Pfizer

Pfizer, the world’s largest research-based biomedical and pharmaceutical company, opened its doors as Charles Pfizer & Company in 1849. It was the first U.S. firm to produce tartaric acid and cream of tartar in 1862. It was all uphill after that as Pfizer sales totaled over $3 million—in 1910! With a revenue of $50 billion in 2009, Pfizer is a drug-developing powerhouse, producing ground-breaking products like Viagra, Lipitor and Zoloft. Medical research continues to play an integral role in its operations.

Responsibilities vary by department, but may include research, assisting sales staff and administrative functions. Possible departments include pharmaceutical operations, finance, marketing and market research, global research and development and global manufacturing. Pfizer also offers a summer law intern program.


Candidates must be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student in a degree program related to the primary research efforts (i.e., science, business, computer science, etc.). Solid academic standing (3.0 GPA or above) is required. Applicants must be authorized to be lawfully employed in the United States. If you are offered a position and you accept that position, the offer is contingent upon the satisfactory completion of a drug test, completion of a background investigation and demonstrated evidence that you are eligible to work for any employer in the United States.
