Freedom to Grow
At Gore, we believe that students thrive when they have challenges that help them grow and learn to trust their own skills and abilities. We foster the next generation of talent by empowering our students to work independently on projects and collaborate with fellow Associates as they grow their knowledge. An experienced sponsor (mentor) provides on-going support and feedback throughout your journey.
As an intern or working student, you will gain hands-on experience in an on-site or virtual environment. You will add real value to our enterprise as you share your ideas, explore possibilities and have fun doing so!
Working at Gore
Gore is a different kind of workplace. Our lattice structure allows us to communicate with other associates without the constraints of traditional chains of command.
Associates – not employees - engage with whomever is needed to get our work done. Sponsors and leaders — not bosses — guide Associates in maximizing their talents and interests to meet business needs. We encourage all Associates to play an active role in charting their career paths and helping their fellow Associates grow.
This work environment fosters personal initiative, creativity and hands-on innovation that ultimately empowers us to make a difference for our customers, communities and our Associates.
