Because our goal is to match each position with the best of the best, you’ll find our talent pool to be equally diverse – a rich mosaic of cultures, backgrounds, and strengths.

Be connected. Be inspired. Be a catalyst.
When you choose sales at Lilly, you’ll be delivering the vital health care solutions of a world-class company noted for its innovative, best-in-class pharmaceutical products, and hailed in Business Week as one of the “Top 50 Places to Launch your Career.”
Choose business at Lilly, and you’ll actually be choosing from three very different career paths. It all depends on which passion you’re intent on pursuing. Opportunities in Marketing, Finance and Human Resources present their own set of unique challenges and rewards, with each one making the most of the talents and skills you bring to the table.
Our engineers design and develop the facilities and processes that keep our researchers at the cutting-edge of the pharmaceutical industry. From our industry defining laboratories to our manufacturing facilities and beyond, our diverse engineering force keeps us state-of-the art.
Science and Technology
This is where it all begins – where the products that help better the lives of millions are conceptualized and produced. Science and technology are the essence of Lilly, the disciplines that continually propel us as industry leaders.
We were founded by Eli Lilly in 1876, and are now the 10th largest pharmaceutical company in the world. We have steadfastly remained independent, but not isolated. Across the globe, Lilly has developed productive alliances and partnerships that advance our capacity to develop innovative medicines at lower costs. Lilly is consistently ranked as one of the best companies in the world to work for, and generations of Lilly employees have sustained a culture that values excellence, integrity, and respect for people.
Supporting our Communities and People

The Lilly heritage and culture values philanthropy and community support. Ranked as one of the most generous companies in the world, in 2010 alone Lilly contributed more than $440 million in cash, products and other in-kind donations to charitable causes.
One of our goals is to improve access to medicines, and our emphasis has been on diseases where we have industry-leading therapies and historic expertise, including diabetes, depression, and multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). Over the last few years, for example, we have committed $135 million in cash, medicines, and technology toward the fight against MDR-TB. We also support programs that improve patient outcomes, such as scholarships, award recognitions, and tools for healthy living.
More than a summer job. It’s a jump on the future.
In today’s job market, experience will most likely give you the edge. But the question is, how do you get that experience when you’re just starting out? Enter Lilly’s Internship Program, step one in building your resume with experience that’s real-world. And hands-on.
Most internships are located at our corporate headquarters in Indianapolis and last 10-12 weeks, from May until September.

Then we match you with projects based on our business needs and your skills and interests.

You’ll meet and interact with Lilly executives and participate in Lilly courses especially designed to help students learn specific, targeted skills. You’ll receive competitive pay, a subsidized housing offer, relocation assistance, access to sport, social and cultural events, and free parking.

Welcome to EY
Are you a leader? Are you motivated by doing your best? Are you focused on your career and interested in working for a global organization? If so, Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) could be the place for you. The EY organization is a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services. The insights and quality services we deliver help build trust and confidence in the capital markets and in economies the world over. We develop outstanding leaders who team to deliver exceptional services to our clients. In so doing, we play a critical role in building a better working world for our people, for our clients and for our communities.
From internships to full-time entry-level and experienced positions, EY US can offer you rewarding and challenging opportunities that will launch your career and open up a world of possibilities. So if you’re an undergraduate accounting, business, technology or finance major, a liberal arts major or even undecided, check us out to learn why the professional services industry, and EY US, could be the place for you.
In Advisory, better questions lead to solving big, complex issues and helping our clients grow, optimize and protect their businesses now and in the future.
In Assurance, better questions drive increased skepticism around financial information to protect and serve the public interest.
In Tax, better questions lead to helping businesses and governments better meet their obligations and understand the implications of their choices.
In Transaction Advisory Services, better questions can lead to our clients’ sustainable growth through the strategic allocation of capital.
If you are currently enrolled in school, definitely start exploring future internship or career opportunities as early as possible — even if you’re a freshman or sophomore. Ask your school’s career services center for information about EY US events at your campus.
You can attend events — ranging from career fairs to informal information sessions that will allow you to:
- Meet our people
- Get a feel for what it’s like to work at EY
- Learn about future internship positions and about potential career paths
To learn more about EY, explore this site further, or visit www.ey.com/careers/students.
For experienced hires, please visit www.ey.com/careers to apply online.
There’s a reason why EY US workplace awards include Great Place to Work® World’s Best Multinational Workplaces, FORTUNE’s 100 Best Companies to Work For®, Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies, National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) Top Companies for Executive Women and DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity.
We put enormous thought and effort into making EY US a leader in our industry and as an employer. That’s led us to create an inclusive environment that respects each individual — and everything they bring to the table.
EY is honored to help the Forté Foundation in its mission to educate and direct talented women toward leadership positions in business. Inclusiveness is a core value for us, and we believe it not only creates a more equitable workplace, but has powerful, quantifiable benefits for our people, our clients and society as a whole.
Our organization can proudly point to more than a decade of commitment to creating a diverse organization. We understand that diversity is not just about the mix of people in an organization; it’s about how we leverage this mix in our culture to enable each one of us to achieve our full potential. It’s what we refer to as inclusiveness. Inclusiveness at its core is about harnessing the incredible range of experiences and perspectives that we have ― whether they are driven by gender, ethnicity, generational differences, sexual orientation or abilities ― to create exceptional experiences that lead to growth for our people and our clients.
Over the past several years, I’ve been talking to faculty at universities about the importance of diversity and inclusiveness as it relates to their students’ future. In particular, it’s important that students learn to work on diverse teams before they graduate into the global corporate world. Future success relies on the ability to work with people whose life experiences might be very different from yours, while also bringing your own individual perspective to the table. The bottom line is that research clearly shows that diverse teams arrive at better solutions ― and we’re seeing that borne out in the marketplace.
So as you look to define your future, as a professional and as a woman, we want to provide you with all the tools and information necessary to make informed decisions about your career. Please take a moment to browse the EY profile on this site, and then learn more about our culture of inclusiveness and career opportunities on our career site.
