Cisco Internship Program Overview

Cisco’s work is associated primarily with internet networking technology – from conception to manufacturing to marketing. The Cisco multinational technology corporation resides in the heart of Silicon Valley. It's famous for its hardware and telecommunications equipment. In 1984, two computer scientists at Stanford had an idea.

Their light bulb moment turned into a launching pad for Cisco. They pioneered the local area network (LAN) and then went on to explore other possibilities to help people connect more effectively. By 1990, Cisco’s market cap was $224 million.

Cisco is looking for visionary interns to join their team. They enjoy helping top-performing interns – as early as their first year – get a taste of their work environment and culture.

They currently offer two programs. The first is the Americas Early-in-University Internship. The second offering is the Worldwide Sales Internship. Both programs provide students with opportunities to become either a Field Sales or Field Engineering intern. To be considered for Cisco’s Worldwide Sales Internship, students must be a ‘rising’ senior.

This program has openings in Europe as well as in the U.S. With so many applications arriving via their website, how does a student rise to the top tier? The prime students will have a passion for technology, be self-motivated and enjoy collaboration with a team. Most terms are between 6-12 weeks long.


Students who are interested in the Field Engineering program should have a programmability background and have a basic understanding of certain computer languages, such as C/C++, Java, Python, and Linux.

Candidates who wish to pursue the field sales intern program should have a strong background in sales, business, communications and marketing.

All students must have a GPA of 3.0.
