Patagonia Internship Program
Patagonia offers a paid, twelve-week internship program to college students during the summer. This program allows interns to gain professional experience within the department of their choosing, ranging from product development to marketing. Interns are also fully immersed within Patagonia’s corporate culture and get to work on progressive and dynamic projects. Internship opportunities are usually posted in the winter, and the final hiring decisions are decided in the spring.
