Busy searching for next summer’s internship or planning for life after graduation? Good news! We’ve built two unique programs tailored for students and recent grads.
1. Internship program for students
2. Initial Career Experience (ICE) program for recent grads
Whichever is the right fit for you, we hope you’re ready to hit the ground running. Our interns and ICE participants don’t spend their days making copies and getting coffee. Once you come on board, expect to contribute. Plan on participating. Be prepared to be heard. The Alliance Data culture is collaborative, high-energy and everyone – everyone – is expected to speak up, pitch in and think big.

We choose interns we think will make a lasting impression on our company, and it’s our job to make sure each student who completes our internship program leaves wanting to come back.
A few perks of the program:
• Subsidized housing
• Onsite fitness center and café
• Full time & competitive pay

• Philanthropic and social events

The Alliance Data Initial Career Experience (ICE) program is a 1 year rotational program, which provides growth opportunities for our newest associates to explore and develop a variety of work experiences. As an ICE participant, you are a full-time Alliance Data associate with benefits – health insurance, 401K contributions, fitness reimbursement and more! During your tenure in the program, you’ll collaborate with several teams and departments, setting you up for successful transition into a permanent role in the company with a ton of relevant experience, strong relationships throughout the organization and a firm knowledge of where your interests and skills can best be put to use.

I couldn’t have asked for a better summer internship experience. I didn’t anticipate building such close relationships with my team members, and I think that speaks volumes to Alliance Data’s unique culture. My experience on the Account Team in Client Partnerships was great – I had exposure to many different areas of the business, and I had the chance to take ownership on real and impactful tasks that directly contributed to the success of my team. I’ll walk away from these 12 weeks a much more well-rounded person, both professionally and personally.
2018 Summer Intern
Throughout my summer I have gotten exposure to the great leadership here, responsibility on projects to support my team and the rest of the organization, and opportunities to network with professionals in many different departments as well as recent college grads and all the other interns in our class! The overall culture here is very relaxed, leaders are down to earth, and people are always willing to help you grow and develop.
2018 Summer Intern
The ICE program was the perfect transition from college into the working world—it helped us to learn the business, experience different teams, and develop as working professionals. I was given so many opportunities to learn from the best, give back to the community, and, have fun! The social experience was one of my favorite aspects of ICE—coming into a new, unfamiliar world with a group of people in the same shoes made all of the difference.

Global Analytics, Alliance Data
Throughout my ICE experience, I met, learned from, and became great friends with my coworkers here at Alliance Data. I had the opportunity to learn about Alliance Data’s values, the financial drivers that impact our business, and how to successfully launch myself into a career right outside of college – all within the first 6 months. I truly appreciate the ICE program and the knowledge and network I gained from it.

Partnership Marketing, Alliance Data
My internship at Alliance Data was everything I could have asked for in an internship. I had exposure into the corporate world, learned about workplace etiquette, had an amazing group of peers to learn with and gained so much knowledge that I was able to take back to college and apply to my final year of classes. In my ICE experience, I was immediately engaged in projects that were business priorities. I immediately felt like I was dong valued work for my team, and I felt that I was truly growing as an individual contributor and I gained strong confidence in myself.

Client Partnerships, Alliance Data
I joined Alliance Data out of college and like most young professionals, I wasn’t completely sure where I wanted to take my career. The ICE program was a great transition from full time student to full time working professional as it allows you to get your footing in the company and establish connections with mentors and peers from day one. The program exposed me to multiple sides of the business I would not have seen otherwise, and it set me up for success when I was placed in my permanent role.

Marketing Strategy, Alliance Data
I joined Alliance Data as an Intern in May of 2015 on our Digital Capabilities Team and thanks to the welcoming company and engaging work I pursued coming back for ICE. During my rotations I had the opportunity to work on the Incubation and Account Center User Experience Teams before finally being placed on the Payments Capabilities Team. Through both the Intern and ICE programs I got the opportunity to deeply explore our Product and Capabilities Teams and work toward finding where I fit best. I am happy that I had the opportunity to experience both programs because the breadth of experience and knowledge of ADS helped prepare me for my first permanent roll.
