About the program

The Home Depot is always striving to reinvent the customer experience as the world’s largest home improvement specialty retailer. They offer students internships that challenge them to complete valuable and immersive projects that directly impact the business.

Hear about the student experience

“The Home Depot has an unparalleled value system. I felt welcomed into the company immediately. There are over 250 interns from all across the country, so I was able to meet many other students. There didn't seem to be a competitive atmosphere. More than half of the interns received job offers!”

Innovating in tech

99% of Home Depot interns would recommend their highly regarded internship program, which offers pathways into tech—including App Development, Systems Analytics, Project Management, Software Development, and others. Home Depot uses Handshake to hire hundreds of skilled early talent individuals into 10 unique business functions, including technology, merchandising, operations, supply chain and more.
