Create your own career path  

As a STAR intern, you rotate into at least two different teams at SAP. For your first rotation, your manager will pair you with a team that matches your interests, skills, and education. For your next rotations you get to pick what teams you want to work with. Some of the most common lines of work are listed below.

Coding is your cardio

Do you want to code for a living? Our engineering product and project management opportunities range from cloud services to UI/UX to networking and everything in between.

Do you enjoy problem solving? STAR interns work with customers on projects related to product integration while working in UX, Cloud, Mobility, Business Analytics, and HANA.

Be the face of SAP

With our consulting opportunities, students in the STAR program can choose a functional or technical role and use their technical and business skills to help customers achieve success.

Work with the latest technologies
