27 Jul: Best Buy interns enjoying summer of learning, fun

Editor’s note: Hannah Sethi, the author of this article, is part of the internship program and a senior at the University of Wisconsin. She is working with our talent acquisition team this summer.

This summer, 115 Best Buy interns are gaining valuable professional experience while making a lasting impact on their teams.

This is the first time our interns have worked in a hybrid model, spending some time on site and remote, similar to many of our corporate employees.

The interns also come from a diverse range of backgrounds:

  • More than 50% BIPOC
  • More than 50% female
  • 10% internal, including store employees
  • More than 40 colleges and universities

Throughout the program, our interns have received opportunities for professional development, networking and some unforgettable fun with their teams and fellow interns.

24 Aug: Interns reflect on a summer at Best Buy

With a new school year starting, Best Buy recently bid farewell to its largest, most diverse class of summer interns.

About 100 interns worked with teams across the organization, representing more than 35 colleges and over a dozen Best Buy stores.

Our program gives students insights into our business and culture. During the summer, interns had the opportunity to network with Best Buy executives and fellow interns, as well as volunteer within the community.

We sat down with three past interns to reflect on their experience with the program.
