What is the difference between an Intern and a Co-Op Student?

Although very similar, there are unique differences between the two positions. An Intern is a student who works for 3 months (part-time/or full time) around their academic schedule.

A Co-Op is a student who takes a semester off from school and works at Skyworks full time for 6 months, in lieu of taking courses that semester.

When are Internships and Co-Op positions offered? Is there a limit on how long an Internship lasts or a Co-Op student hired?

We hire interns and Co-Op students throughout the year for defined terms with specified start and end dates.

Internships: We offer three structured terms for internships
  • • Winter / Spring — January through May
  • • Summer — June through August
  • • Fall — September through December

Co-Op Positions: We offer two, 6- month structured terms
  • • Winter / Spring — January through June
  • • Summer / Fall — July through December

A student may extend from one term into the next. For example, a Summer Intern may extend their term into the Fall and work part-time around their course schedule. Please note that the maximum tenure/length of assignment for an Intern or Co-Op student is 12 continuous months, with at least a semester in between assignments.

Skyworks does not provide temporary housing. However, interns/Co-Op students are eligible for both relocation assistance and a housing and transportation stipend, so long as the distance between their campus/home and their new Skyworks location is fifty (50) miles or greater. The relocation assistance is administered through a third-party vendor who may also assist the intern/Co-Op student with finding a temporary place to live for the duration of their assignment at Skyworks.

Skyworks also provides a list of other vendors, who can assist interns and Co-Op students with finding temporary housing. Skyworks will not pay for any services rendered by these vendors. Any costs incurred are the responsibility of the intern /Co-Op student
