NXP’s strong commitment to our new-in-career and internship programs is a key contributor to developing the next generation of talent, including engineers, in our industry and our company. In addition to recruiting interns, working students and new college graduates for engineering roles, the company also hires for general and administrative positions in Finance, Human Resources, Sales and other areas.


Our internship programs focus on the technical advancement and skills development students need as they prepare to enter the professional workforce. In 2023, we continued to welcome university students to NXP. We granted more than 1,380 internships to university students and converted 48% of our interns into NXP team members as new college graduates.

New College Graduates

Our internship programs build a highly capable and energetic pipeline of new college graduates. In 2023, we were pleased to welcome more than 910 IDL new college graduates, a slight decrease from the 1,070 new college graduates we hired in 2022. These hires represent 44% of our overall IDL hiring activity, in which 36% of new college graduate hires were women and 76% were underrepresented minorities in the US.
