Start your career with the right internship

An internship at Northrop Grumman is unique. Sure, you’ll learn new skills, explore our enterprise, network with experts, connect with thought leaders, and finish with a resume that opens doors. But you’ll gain something even more valuable: pride in what you’ve done.

Here are the basics:

  • For college level internships we typically look for rising sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students at accredited colleges and universities
  • We look for high potential students of all grade levels, and even have internship opportunities for high school students
  • Work assignments typically begin in May/June and end in August/September (minimum 8-12 week commitment). There are some opportunities for interns to stay on in a part-time internship capacity year round.
  • Included in many of our intern programs are orientation and kick-off events, networking opportunities with leadership and other interns, social activities, and learning sessions

We also offer Cooperative Education opportunities, or co-ops. A co-op is slightly different from an internship in that your school decides the terms and works with us throughout the experience. Co-ops may earn credit plus an hourly wage, and they are not limited to the summer months. Co-op opportunities are limited to participating Northrop Grumman locations and candidates from approved university Cooperative Education programs. Co-op opportunities may be part time (while attending class) or full time (minimum 8-12 week commitment) in the Summer.
