How Our University Recruiting Process Works

Harris recruits at numerous top programs throughout the United States. Our team makes trips to campuses in both fall and spring. Students can find us at career fairs and info sessions, leading classroom discussions, participating in student organization events and discussing the benefits of working at Harris.

We conduct first-round interviews on campus. Second rounds, for competitive students, may take place at one of our office locations. The core majors we hire for are:

  • Computer Science
  • Computer Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Software Engineering
  • Supply Chain/Logistics
  • Finance/Accounting 

Searching for an Internship or Co-op?

We also provide current students with the opportunity to work in a professional environment while still in school. At Harris, our internships are unique, enabling you to think beyond the classroom, explore our culture, connect with thought leaders, meet new friends, take pride in the projects you complete and put your future career path into overdrive.

What Can an Applicant for a Harris Internship or Co-op Expect?

For college level internships, we search for rising sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students at accredited 4-year and 5-year U.S. colleges and universities. As a candidate under consideration, you will need to demonstrate a high level of academic achievement, including a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Our work assignments typically begin in May/June and end in August/September.

A co-op is slightly different from an internship in that your school decides the terms and works with us throughout the experience. Our co-ops may earn credit plus an hourly wage and are not limited to working in the summer months.

In addition to professional experiences in an innovative company, we offer our interns the following benefits:

  • Competitive pay, including ‘paid holidays’ when relevant
  • Career development resources
  • Participation in Harris' Employee Resource Groups
  • Challenging work assignments in leading-edge technology and services operations
  • A variety of social and professional networking activities, which may include orientation and kick-off events, mentoring opportunities, various learning and development sessions and more
