Nestlé Purina's College Recruitment Program

At Nestlé Purina, we recognize that college students today are the future leaders of our business. To foster the professional growth of young talent within our organization, we've developed a College Recruitment Program, which offers robust undergraduate and graduate internship opportunities, as well as a Management Trainee Program.

College Positions We Look to Fill

Undergraduate Internships:

We're in search of high-performing college juniors (or seniors returning to school for another semester or year) to fulfill our summer internships in the areas of Supply Chain, Finance & Accounting, and Audit. These positions occur over 10-12 weeks during the summer months at our St. Louis Headquarters.

MBA and Other Graduate Internships:

Our Branded Marketing Teams offer a robust internship opportunity at our St. Louis Headquarters for MBA students in between their first and second year of an accredited program. This 12-week summer Marketing Internship is designed to be feedback-rich and highly strategic. We also offer a Supply Chain Internship for those in pursuit of a master's degree in business or supply chain.

Other Internships:

We encourage students to sign up for e-mail job alerts on our Careers Website as other internship opportunities may become available throughout the school year in the areas of Communications/Advertising, Human Resources, Market Research and Sustainability.

Management Trainee Program:

Our Management Trainee Program recruits recent graduates to fill these full-time, entry-level roles. The areas in which we recruit for include: Accounting, Engineering, Engineering PTC, Human Resources, Information Systems, Operations Performance Trainee, Production, Quality Assurance and Supply Chain. Located at one of our factory locations, these positions provide a deep understanding of their functional area, as well as the manufacturing environment as a whole.

How to Get Started with our College Recruitment Process

Each of our college positions are posted on our Careers website at the start of the Fall semester. We encourage students to browse our Careers site to learn more about the internships we offer, how the Management Trainee Program works, and also to become familiar with the departments that make up the Nestlé Purina business. If you are unsure as to where you may be good fit within our organization, our Career Connexion App allows you to fill in your major and graduation date and it will populate with the position(s) that best fits you.

Relocation, Compensation & Conversion to Full-Time Opportunities

All of our internships are hourly-paid opportunities, and the summer internships provide relocation assistance to St. Louis. Unfortunately, we do not provide sponsorship at this time, but we encourage those individuals who require it to explore our global opportunities within Nestlé.

We hire talent to fulfill our internship opportunities who we hope can grow with us for years to come. We're proud of our track record of offering full-time positions to our successful interns, although this offer of permanent employment is based on performance throughout your time with us.

Be sure to connect with us on each of our social channels as we post many of our opportunities to these platforms.
