Read below for answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
  • If I am not currently in college and am not a college graduate, will I be able to get through the first filter?
    Unfortunately, no. To qualify for an internship, you must have or be enrolled in a Bachelor’s degree or higher. To qualify for a full-time position, after the successful completion of an internship, a Bachelor’s degree must be completed. For both internships and full-time jobs, the major of study for the college degree is not a disqualifier.
  • Are there any age limits (minimum) on candidates for internships?
    Yes. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age or older.
  • Are these paid internships?
  • Is there a relocation/lump sum stipend for the internship?
    No. AT&T will not provide any moving or housing stipends above and beyond interns’ salaries.
  • When are these internships? When is the application period?
    AT&T is hiring throughout 2021, with new application windows opening every few weeks. Interns will be able to begin their internships on a rolling basis throughout the year.

    2021 Application Windows:
    • Period 1: Mid-January
    • Period 2: Mid-March
    • Period 3: Mid-May
    However, please note that space at some AT&T locations is limited, so interested students are encouraged to apply in the earlier application windows.
  • Do candidates all have to live in the US?
    No, not when they apply for the opportunity. However, all of the internships are located in the US and AT&T will not sponsor applicants for work visas of any kind for this position.
  • Can I participate in the internship virtually?
    Due to COVID, 2021 TDP Internships will be facilitated virtually. Interns may work from anywhere in the United States, excluding territories. We ask that all candidates have a willingness to relocate to one of the seven target locations in the future. Potential full time positions will eventually relocate and collocate with their teams in an AT&T office building in those metro areas. Return to workplace dates have not yet been determined.
  • What are the pathways to permanent jobs after the internship for high performers?
    This program is a 10-12 week internship at 40 hours/week. At the conclusion of the internship, AT&T may make an offer to convert to a full-time role. This is the ultimate goal for AT&T.
  • What kind of skills are required?

    Interns are expected to have full stack engineering skills, including Java and Python.

    AT&T is looking for someone of integrity with excellent interpersonal, oral and written communication skills and the ability to interface with all levels of internal and external leadership. We value results-driven self-starters who can work effectively in multi-disciplinary environments throughout cross-functional teams.

    Our preferred languages include Java (derivatives), SQL (derivatives), Python, C, C++, Linux/Unix, Cloud Computing, HTML, Oracle and XML.
