Nike is a Fortune 500 company that started from the back of Phil Knight’s car. The internationally recognized sportswear company designs and develops footwear, apparel, and equipment. In addition, it handles sponsorship deals for major athletes and sports teams.
The Nike campus is located in Beaverton, Oregon, but the famed Nike Swoosh is seen all over the world. This publicly traded company employs approximately 44,000 people and handles billions of dollars in revenue each year. It’s an ideal spot for any intern.
Most internships take place at the Beaverton, Oregon headquarters, but there are also positions in Nike’s global offices in places like the Netherlands or Hong Kong. The internship sets applicants up for a career fast track. Nike’s main internship program lasts 12-weeks from June to August. It gives interns the opportunity to see and experience Nike from the inside. There are other internships with other time frames listed on Nike’s website, but these are smaller programs.
Nike offers internships in many different niches. Depending on your skills and education you can apply for positions in fields such as Brand Marketing, Corporate Functions, Design, Distribution, Merchandising, Engineering, Manufacturing, Retail, Sales, Sports Marketing, or Product Development. Internships are paid and offer many employee benefits such as access to athletic facilities, store discounts, and more.
Nike’s motto "Work Hard, Play Hard" applies to the office too – making a fun learning and work environment. Nike stresses that you don’t have to be an athlete to be an intern (or employee), but you need to think like one and be passionate about sports.
Nike focuses on action sports, training, basketball, football, soccer, running, women’s, tennis, and sportswear. If you enjoy sports and want to make an impact with a worldwide athletic corporation, then apply for an internship with Nike.
