About CDW Summer Internship Program

CDW is a leading multi-brand technology solutions provider to business, government, education and healthcare organizations in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. CDW’s fingerprints can be found on technology in workplaces and workspaces of more than 250,000 companies, from fresh-faced startups to international conglomerates. We’ve powered record-breaking data traffic at a Super Bowl stadium and equipped mom-and-pop stores with POS systems for Small Business Saturday. We’ve helped hospitals keep medical records secure from data breeches and we’ve migrated a university business school to the cloud.

An internship with CDW will provide college students a real-world business experience, unmatched by any other typical 10-week summer internship experience. CDW is a unified team of challenge takers, diverse thinkers and problem solvers. Everywhere an intern turns, they will find coworkers working collaboratively together, solving problems together and winning together.

Each intern has projects specific to his/her team and department, which helps the individual grow their career to the next level. Whether it is shadowing a coworker or collaborating with other interns, CDW provides each intern with resources to succeed in their internship as well as in a post-graduation opportunity. Last year, 63% of Summer Interns were offered returning internship positions or full-time positions upon graduation.
