Careers at ThermoFisher Scientific


My work is aStory of Potential


My Internship & Apprenticeship Story

“As a member of the Thermo Fisher Scientific IT Leadership Development Program, I am assigned to four six-month job rotations under our IT leaders. In each assignment, I am responsible for leading key aspects of some of the most significant IT projects taking place in the company. For example, I recently focused on developing global infrastructure services for the Global IT Service Desk.  Each rotation exposes me to various roles and responsibilities within the function and supports my fast-track development into a leadership position at the end of the program. The ITLDP program is helping me get an intensive introduction to the IT department here at Thermo Fisher, allowing me to work directly with IT leaders, and developing my personal leadership skills.”


James' Story

“I came to Thermo Fisher having just graduated from the University from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I began the Product Development Leadership Program (PDLP). The program helped me smoothly transition from academia into a business environment, and I gained a lot of technical knowledge from the start as my manager pushed me to try new things right away. I worked outside of my department and was able to see how the technical innovations I was helping to make were translated directly into value for our customers. The PDLP teamed me with a mentor, a Senior Mechanical Engineer. This mentorship program advanced my career and allowed me to develop business acumen and leadership skills. Through these mentorships, I was able to move into a new position in manufacturing. Now, as a manufacturing engineer I am helping to make sure customers are getting exactly what they ordered in an efficient and reliable way.”


Taylor's Story

“I am interning in a group that provides specialized sequencing solutions to a unique set of customers. We design and test gene panels that are used in medical research and diagnostics. Our work helps healthcare professionals to create unique treatment plans for individual patients and to prevent disease by detecting inherited conditions early on. We test the effectiveness of our gene panels and technology on a daily basis, by running samples with specific traits on our Proton and PGM sequencing machines. The base knowledge I learned in school definitely was critical to me being able to jump into my work in the group. The first month was a lot of training, but the help of my lab team and their constant availability to answer my questions helped me to feel comfortable in the lab very quickly.The big picture is key to the work we do every day, as it shows how the practical application of scientific concepts can change the face of medical treatment in the coming decades.”


Erin's Story

“As a Corporate Strategy intern with the Strategy and Corporate Development team, I help the company focus on strategic planning from a holistic perspective. Some of my key responsibilities include: understanding and executing market intelligence activities; participating in and executing special projects on growth, productivity, and corporate processes; supporting the M&A process including due diligence and post-merger integration; and supporting the development of materials and assisting with the framing and flow of presentations for the company leadership team, board of directors, and division presidents. I’ve learned a lot about the complexity of a large consolidated organization and the importance of integration planning and implementation.”
