Jump start your career with a rewarding internship

Make your classroom learning come alive. A Lexmark internship provides real-world exposure in a variety of technical fields. We select top students from across the country to work on cutting-edge assignments. Do you have what it takes?

Opportunities for full-time college students include summer internships, semester co-ops and part-time positions. We're also a proud sponsor of the GEM program (Graduate Degrees for Minorities in Engineering and Science). GEM participants receive a $16,000 stipend while completing a master's degree and two summer internships with Lexmark.

In additions to real work assignments, interns participate in a wide variety of professional and social activities, including lunch and learn sessions with executives, intramural sports and technical symposiums.

Internships are available in Lexington, Ky., as well as in Boulder, Colo. Summer Internships are also available at Lexmark's Perceptive Software locations in Kansas City, San Francisco, Minneapolis and other areas.

Student opportunities FAQ

The experience sounds great. Do the positions pay, too?

Yes. All student positions come with a competitive hourly rate that increases according to the number of completed academic credit hours. If you live more than 50 miles from the location of the internship, we'll provide travel reimbursement and set you up in a fully furnished apartment.

What does it take to become a student employee at Lexmark?

We're looking for students of all levels, who are enrolled at accredited colleges with permanent U.S. work authorization. Those are the basics. Beyond that, we especially want students with competitive GPAs, strong extracurricular and leadership experience, and most importantly, a zest for learning and innovation.

How many student positions does Lexmark have?

The numbers and locations vary somewhat, but we usually employ about 100 students annually. This means there are many peers to share the experience with.

How and when should I apply for a student position?

Summer internships are posted each fall on our business area pages and on college career sites. Semester co-ops and part-time positions are posted year round. You also can follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter to stay up-to-date.

Can I apply for more than one position?

Yes. You can apply for as many positions that interest you.

What is the typical day like for an intern?

No one day is typical (that's a good thing), but in general, Lexmark student employees do the same things that our regular employees do. We work on exciting and challenging projects, experiment in labs, and get to collaborate with some really smart and innovative people.
