    SAS Autism Spectrum Internship Program – Summer 2020 (Expression of Interest)

    At SAS, diversity and inclusion is multi-dimensional – we have a culture that blends our different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives from 59 countries around the world. A diverse workforce brings together unique talents and abilities that inspire teams to create software that can change the world. Great minds don’t always think alike, so we make it a priority to promote an environment where varied perspectives are encouraged.

    Our award-winning Autism Spectrum Internship Program is designed to provide a valuable work experience for autistic students who are passionate about technology and eager to make an impact.

    As an intern in the Autism Spectrum Internship Program, you will have the opportunity to work at a company that creates analytics software that turns data – about customers, operations, financials, and more – into insight. In over 140 countries, our customers use SAS to battle cybercrime, speed drugs to market, streamline supply chains, boost marketing, and so much more.

    You’ll partner with some of the brightest minds in the world on business-critical projects, and you’ll have the opportunity to be immersed in our award-winning culture, grow your social and professional network, interact with our senior leadership, and share your contributions with the company.

    Program Details

    The internship experience will have two components – training & onboarding and on-the-job work experience during the summer from May – August 2020.

    The training and onboarding period will begin in February until April 2020 with a series of paid virtual and/or on-site meetings (depending on your location) with the diversity program team, intern program manager, your manager and team. The purpose is to ease the transition from classroom to workplace and help equip you with the information, resources, and skills to set you up for success at SAS. If you are hired in this program, you will be notified of the dates/times; however, you can anticipate approximately 10-12 hours of training during this timeframe.

    The on-the-job internship experience will begin in May and end in August 2020 at our headquarters in Cary, NC. This will be a full-time paid summer internship of approximately 35 – 40 hours per week. You can learn more about our internship program at
