HPE Foundation and Community Investment Intern
At HPE, we bring together the brightest minds to create breakthrough technology solutions and advance the way people live and work. Our legacy inspires us as we forge ahead dedicated to helping our customers make their mark on the world.
Learning does not only happen through training. Relationships are among the most powerful ways for people to learn and grow, and this is part of our HPE culture. In addition to working alongside talented colleagues, you will have many opportunities to learn through coaching and stretch assignment opportunities. You’ll be guided by feedback and support to accelerate your learning and maximize your knowledge. We also have a “reverse mentoring” program which allows us to share our knowledge and strengths across our multi-generation workforce.

HPE has a long legacy of giving back to the communities where we live and work. Our founders Bill and Dave believed that companies have a responsibility to contribute positively to society, and built this view into the company’s corporate objectives long before the term “Corporate Social Responsibility / CSR” was coined. The HPE Foundation and Community Investment team deploys skills, resources, and technology to address social challenges and advance the way people live and work. Our approach is to amplify the impact of our team members, accelerate social impact in the digital age, and activate our resources to support the communities where we live and work.
Our program is designed to mentor and develop talented individuals with strong leadership potential and strategic thinking capability. We are looking for energetic, highly motivated individuals who are currently pursuing a Bachelor’s level (or equivalent) degree. As an intern you will work with a variety of our staff on projects that will help contribute to our community investment initiatives. The intern’s responsibilities may vary based on the demands within the department.
