Let's get down to the details

I've applied. How will I get updates?

Once you apply, we will provide regular status updates to all applicants on a rolling basis. We receive thousands of applications annually, so we appreciate your patience. At the close of our recruitment season (end of the spring semester), we’ll give you a final status update.

I've been offered an interview. What happens next?

During the selection and interview process, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the team you may work on. Interviews may be conducted via HireVue on demand, a live virtual interview, or a combination.

Can I apply for more than one internship?

Based on your prior experiences and interests, your résumé will be shared with hiring managers across SAS. This will then determine who you interview with during the selection process. You can apply multiple times, but that does not increase your chances for an interview.

Are internships available only during the summer?

In addition to summer opportunities, we also offer year-round internships that average 15 hours per week.

Intern Expo showcases talent

After working hard all summer our interns participate in our annual Intern Expo. SAS leaders attend the event to show their support of the program. Interns network with other fellow interns and teams across SAS. And they get valuable feedback about how their projects are making an impact.
