Co Ops and Internships

You bring the drive and energy, we’ll supply state-of-the art facilities and world-class mentors

Co Op Program

Our Co Op Program is an exciting and enriching opportunity available through select universities in the United States where college-age students can spend a semester working with us on cutting-edge initiatives. Find out what it’s like to be on the forefront of innovation while you’re still in college.

Our Chairman and CEO, Jim Gentlicore launched his career as a Co Op Program participant, and he now champions PQ Corporation’s Co Op Program. Jim believes that every college student who participates in PQ Corporation’s Co Op Program will have a rewarding learning experience with the potential to become a future employee.


Each year we offer a limited number of internships to college students seeking experience with world-class mentors across the United States. From our headquarters in Malvern, Pennsylvania to Dominguez, California you’ll have access to expert coaching where you’ll gain experience that lasts a lifetime.

Our internship program is growing every year and we continue to look for candidates ready to learn in a safe, clean environment. It is so popular, in fact, that we have returning interns most years—truly a testament to the outstanding culture at PQ Corporation.
