There are internships, and then there’s Extreme Blue™

Extreme Blue at IBM is not your average internship program.

Imagine having the opportunity to unleash your technical ingenuity and business acumen in the professional world—with the support, expertise and backing of one of the world's leading technology companies.

Embracing diversity and inclusion as a source of innovation, creativity, and a competitive advantage, we look for the best and brightest candidates who can collaborate with teams that possess unique skills and diverse backgrounds.

What to Expect

In 10 to 12 weeks, you'll work with fellow technical and offering management interns to develop an idea to address a real-world challenge confronting part of IBM's business, and then turn that idea into a real product.

Your team will work in one of our labs alongside other IBM teams, cross-pollinating ideas and engaging in friendly competition. Besides being mentored by business and technical consultants, you will also take part in brainstorming, presentations, and personal development workshops. Not only will your ideas be heard, you'll have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working on our most cutting-edge projects!

At the conclusion of the internship, you’ll take part in a regional Expo where you'll get the opportunity to present and demo your solutions to IBM executives, stakeholders, and the other Extreme Blue interns.

Expectations will be high and the results will be scrutinized closely. So, it’s not an easy ride – but we guarantee it’ll be an incredible experience.

Every generation of IBMers has the opportunity –and, I believe, the responsibility –to invent a new IBM. This is our time.
