Full Job Description

Get ready to grow your career as an Intern on the Kellogg Research & Development team – where we believe in your success! Here at Kellogg, we are always seeking to add great student talent like you to our pipeline for future roles. We are looking to fill three intern positions in 2023 where you’ll help bring out the best in food.

During your time with us, you’ll be building your network and expertise in a thriving environment of professional development and teamwork. And together we’ll shape a stronger future for our company and your career.

This position will be an in-person experience, located out of our Corporate Headquarters in Battle Creek, MI. And with your self-starter, go-getter, team-player work ethic, we’re positive you’ll fit right in.


As part of the Kellogg Internship program, you will participate in our corporate onboarding orientation and have the chance to visit our Kellogg World Headquarters in Battle Creek, Michigan (Cereal City, USA!) during the Intern Finale meeting. These events consist of executive exposure, former intern & executive panels, networking events, community activities and much more.


This paid internship requires a 3-month, full-time commitment starting May 2023. Relocation advising and sign-on bonus provided – and did we mention we have plenty of snacks? Travel may be required but will depend on geography and placement. The internship concludes with a Final Showcase event and presentation to functional leaders.
