Interns play an integral role at Fossil Group—you’re the innovators-to-be, the big idea-creators, and the passionate newcomers who inspire us to make great products.

We offer a range of year-round internship opportunities for current students who enjoy working collaboratively in an exciting and influential environment.

During Fossil Group’s semester long intern program (approx. 40 hours/week), you’ll gain real-world experience working alongside the most creative thinkers and changemakers in the industry. Placed on one of our owned or licensed brand teams, each intern is assigned a mentor who will provide guidance and training while exposing them to hands-on responsibilities that directly impact our business goals. Interns will create and present a personal project that allows them to share their fresh perspectives and ideas with the members of our Executive Leadership Team at the conclusion of each program.

We’re excited to teach you what we know and be inspired by your insights!

mallory "During my internship, I worked on small leather accessories and noticed that people my age were looking for smaller wallets to carry. I mentioned this in a meeting and my creative director encouraged me to concept it. My design was sampled, produced, and eventually sold in stores! It was exciting to see my idea put into production" - Mallory Barkocy Hunter Marc "I feel like I’ve made an impact at Fossil by being part of a collaborative team effort of seeing products come into fruition.
