Intel India – Start your career and help change the world

When I was in college I used to think, “What options do I have for starting my career in an organization? Which role do I start my career with? How can I add value to the organization I join? Will I be able to do justice to my own career development? Am I important?”


It was difficult to get answers to these questions in the beginning of my career. But once I joined Intel, I could see how important I am as an employee and as an individual. For Intel, each employee is important and for those freshly out of college it is a great foundation.


Intel not only made me feel important, but took care of me and my career over the years. Intel makes a lot of effort to select the right talent – the best and brightest. Intel’s investments are headliners because Intel’s wisest investment is in the employees.


I have learned at Intel that getting fresh faces into the organization is so important; it helps us in getting the most innovative ideas. A great place to find this freshness is in our local colleges and universities. That’s why Intel India, and my team in particular, has a variety of college programs to offer and a strong college presence! We are connected with the best colleges around the country which means we’re making it easier for talented minds, such as yourself, to apply. There are different ways that college students can join Intel: students can join the intern program while College Graduates (CGs) can apply for full-time positions. You can take a look at it yourself at Jobs at Intel.


Today, I would like to highlight the intern program. The internship program is extremely important to us at Intel, as you may know from the posts we have had on internships in general, and specifically on internships in the UK and China. An internship can last from two months to one year with lots of opportunities to get involved on projects with lasting impact. This program becomes very important because at the end of the internship we evaluate the students’ performances and may offer jobs to outstanding performers. We have interns coming from across the country to be a part of Intel India’s growth. We have an Intel Scholar Program in India which helps us to connect up to the colleges. Under this program we have contests where we invite applications from students across the country to send in their proposals on certain key topics identified by Intel Technologists. Through this program we find the ‘best of the best’ and invite them to apply to relevant internship opportunities at Intel India.


The intern program in India is unique in its own way. The kind of projects, independence and sense of responsibility that is given to the interns helps them to get connected with the latest technology and the company at a very nascent stage of their career. They are exposed to the mentoring and guidance of the best of leaders to help them learn and grow and choose their area of expertise.


Now that you know about the Intern Program, I’m sure you are anxious to hear about the RCG hiring opportunities. All of these programs and Intel’s strong presence in colleges make the Intel India’s College Program a great success. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post where I’ll tell you more about RCG hiring.


In the meantime, you can visit the India Student Center and also log on to Jobs at Intelto check out the latest job opportunities that match your profile.


If you have the passion to change the world with innovation, I hope to see you at Intel.

    I am currently pursuing MBA in Canada and have around four years of experience in telecom/software. I was wondering if there are any projects related to Moorestown/telecom being executed in India. I want to leverage my previous experience so I guess such projects would be a great choice.

  6. Hi Priyanka Bhagat
    I’m from Vietnam. I know Intel factory is being under construction now. And i also know about about RCG program (I joined the interview of this program one time but unfortunately i failed). I has just graduated from my university at april 2009. Really, my grade isn’t really high. I only has an enthusiastic mind to learn, to find what i can do. And i know at Intel, i can find out that. So i really want to join Intel. Can i ask some questions:
    What skills does Intel want from a candidate who has just graduated?
    I need to know about that to improve myself to re-try in next application on Intel.
    Thanks for your advices.

  8. Hi,
    I was interested to know if Intel is into sponsoring technology projects in India. I am a student in BITS Pilani and am working on a humanoid robotics project, named Project AcYut, which has been running for the past 2 years and has won a bronze medal in RoboOlympics 2009 at San Fransisco apart from winning laurels for India all over the world.
    Since Intel prides itself on being a “Sponsor of Tommorow”, I was wondering if Intel would be interested in sponsoring this project?
    Hoping for a quick reply :)

  21. hiiiiiii Priyanka,
    i m 2nd year student of B.TECH. of stream Electronic & Communication engg. I want to do summer internship from INTEL . Kindly help me out.

  22. Hi!
    I’m presently doing M.Tech in CAD/CAM, Intel-Banglore visited my college looking for Interns and i got selected in that.
    My internship duration is 10months.
    Can I expect a permanent job in Intel after my successful completion of Internship?

  23. Hi Shivaram! While many of our interns who complete a successful internship do receive full-time offers after their internship, it is not guaranteed. There are many factors that go into giving an offer to an intern, including but not limited to a successful internship completion and an opening that fits your needs and our needs.

  24. hi, i am presently doing my M.Tech in VLSI from NIT KURUKSHETRA and INTEL recruited me n 6 of my friends in may 2010. but now its my 3rd semester and i am in need of the topic for dissertation .i want to work on the same topic which intel would provide me. so plz kindly tel me the field in which INTEL B anglore is inviting us.

  25. Hi Babita! Congratulations on your internship with Intel. In India the hiring teams work very closely with the college placement teams so do direct your queries through your placement officer.

  26. Hi,i am guruprasad and i completed my bachelor’s degree in june 2010.I want to work in intel and i applied jobs in jobs site under RCG but i didnt get any response.What are the steps so that i can work in intel?I am been applying RCG jobs from the day i finished my degree.

  27. Hi!
    Im basically from Mechanical Engineering stream, Now doing Master Degree in Computer Aided Design and Manufactufing. Do Intel-Banglore have a permanent Mechanical division for it? Being an electronics and semiconductors based company, what Intel has got to do with Mechanical Engineers basically? The Hint given by my interviewer when i asked about my project was that I have to work on a mechanical component so called Socket. What other areas Intel has got, that mechanical Engineers could do? Will ther be a need for Mechanical Engineers on throught basis in Intel???

  28. Hi Sivaramakrishnan! Thanks for your comment! I wanted to be sure to give you the best answer I could so I connected with our Intel India College Program team and here is what they shared: While Intel is a semi-conductor organization, we do have plenty of opportunities that require diverse perspectives from various education disciplines. Intel India does not have a specific mechanical division, however there are opportunities that are available for Mechanical Engineers as well. One of the beautiful aspects of Intel is the range of opportunities that one can pursue in different fields. Once you come on board as an intern I’m sure you would be able to discover more about Intel & Intel India in order to get a better perspective on this. With regards to your specific question on your project, we will request your manager to get in touch with you so you can discuss these details and iron out any apprehensions you may have. All the best for your internship!

  29. Hi Sejal!
    Thanks a lot for your valuable information about Intel Internship and also regarding my question. I’ve collected a lot of informations about Intel these days and now I’m very eagerly waiting for my internship to get started. I’ll definitely give my best efforts throughout this internship and I wish I’d become a permanent employee of Intel after my internship.

  30. @Guruprasad, I consulted a colleague in India and here was here response: “Thanks for your interest in Intel India! We are getting tons of great candidates everyday but unfortunately don’t have enough openings for all of them. In India we typically route most of our Intern/RCG hiring through the college training and placement teams.In that regard I strongly recommend you get in touch with your placement in charge for the same to understand opportunities with Intel. In case of full time opportunities, we do also review direct applications through our website [] so do apply to openings you find interesting and suitable. Best of luck!”
