Year-Round Internship PROGRAM
This is an amazing opportunity for students to gain work experience while still in school! Our Year-Round Internship Program provides Interns valuable real life experiences, flexible time commitments catered to school schedules and competitive hourly pay. Additionally, Interns are exposed to and included in numerous exciting events, meetings and important projects. Our teams dedicate time to each Intern to ensure they have a valuable learning experience to gain skills needed for future careers. This program is ongoing throughout the year and assignments are generally 3 – 6 months for both our Footwear, Apparel, and Marketing teams.

Open positions are posted throughout the year when a need occurs. Positions are posted here.
Not only is this an exciting opportunity to explore the depths of a global iconic brand, the Vans Summer Internship Program will challenge you with real life work experiences and provide networking opportunities of a lifetime.

During this ten week program, Interns have the opportunity to manage a detailed business case project from start to finish. Interns will be conducting their own due diligence and formulating their recommendations to present to our leadership team—an opportunity most professionals have only well into their careers. From resume building workshops to presentation skills training, our comprehensive program is designed to set you up for success even after the internship has concluded. We understand that an internship is an investment, and we want our Interns to gain relevant experience while still having a fun and exciting Summer.

Open positions change yearly and the ten week program generally runs from June - August. Recruitment beings in January - February of each year and positions are posted at this time here.

Vans Family
To all Future Van Doren’s! My name is Chyna Perez and I am part of the Vans family as a Footwear Materials Intern. I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising as an Apparel Industry Management/Menswear Design Major so this was a natural next step for me to start developing my professional experience. My six months here at Vans have been like no other. I am included in important meetings, and am immersed in the day-to-day job scope of my manager and peers which enables me to gain tons of hands on experience! Every day I look forward to coming to work because everyone represents the Vans brand DNA (inclusive, expressive, determined, connected and fun) and has impactful projects and responsibilities, which creates a truly unique work environment.

I have learned so much about the application of textiles for shoes and the different finishes that are used, which is knowledge I will use later in my career. I am so happy I had the opportunity at Vans to learn and grow and suggest this program to anyone looking to develop their skills and have fun while doing it! The Vans Family is the best family!
