About our internship program

The purpose of PENA's Internship Program is to provide an entry-level experience into our organization, develop an early talent pipeline for potential employment, and provide learning and development opportunities within Panasonic and PENA. Our program provides undergraduate students an opportunity to gain practical work experience through working on business-driven projects and exposing them to the work done at PENA.
