Every summer, we invite talented undergraduate juniors heading into their senior year to join us in our headquarters offices for a challenging, hands-on experience in the retail industry. The ten week Summer Intern Program runs from June 17th through August 23rd and is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Summer Intern Program combines meaningful work experiences with exposure to different areas of our business to give participants a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge of the retail industry and determine whether they'd like to pursue a career at Gap Inc. after graduation. Interns attend weekly presentations by senior executives, which provide an overview of the company and the many aspects of our business. Each intern is also assigned a challenging project that he or she will present to senior management at the end of the summer.

Participants in the program will learn that we work hard at Gap Inc., but we think it's important to have fun, too. As part of their experience, Interns participate in events outside the office, such as volunteering at a local non-profit or going to a baseball game at AT&T Park, right down the street from our headquarters offices.
