Find meaningful work at SAS.

We’re not about coffee runs and boring busywork. A SAS internship is focused on development, culture and community. We’ll help you grow professionally, thrive in an award-winning work environment and make memorable connections with your co-workers and fellow interns. From contributing analytical code to improving insights for our Fortune 100 customers, the potential to make a real impact is exciting.

Our interns aren't shy about sharing their insights.

An internship is often seen as the first step to the career of your dreams. Spending my internship at SAS, surrounded by a great internship mentor and a highly available team, allowed me to push further my knowledge in a very pleasant working environment. Having the opportunity to be part of a concrete AGILE project at a SAS-customer, to work on different data visualization tasks, all these really reinforces the feeling of contributing to the company while ensuring the best experience for the intern.

Cédric Liégeois, Intern at SAS BeLux

I really enjoyed my internship at SAS Institute. It was my first professional experience, yet I had the opportunity to work on an actual case where we applied predictive analytics for an important customer and had a lot of freedom doing so. The case I was assigned to was picked for me and gave me a chance to apply the skills I had learned at university while learning a lot from experienced employees. All this in a welcoming office, where everything was done to make me comfortable.

Yannis Bertrand, Intern at SAS BeLux

“My internship not only gave me the opportunity to learn new skills and think creatively on my assigned projects, but it also allowed me learn about different career paths at SAS. My experience also showed me the importance of company culture, and helped me understand what a healthy work-life balance looks like. The best part about my internship was surrounding myself with people who love the work they do.”

May and June

SAS has summer internships with two midmonth start dates. Internships last 10 to 12 weeks.

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, live virtual interview, in person 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 leadership attends 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.
