2022 ABB Discovery Business Early Career Rotational Program

Take your next career step at ABB with a global team that is energizing the transformation of society and industry to achieve a more productive, sustainable future.

At ABB, we have the clear goal of driving diversity and inclusion across all dimensions: gender, LGBTQ+, abilities, ethnicity and generations. Together, we are embarking on a journey where each and every one of us, individually and collectively, welcomes and celebrates individual differences.

ABB is a leading global engineering company that energizes the transformation of society and industry to achieve a more productive, sustainable future. By connecting software to its electrification, robotics, automation and motion portfolio, ABB pushes the boundaries of technology to drive performance to new levels. With a history of excellence stretching back more than 130 years, ABB’s success is driven by 110,000 talented employees in over 100 countries.

The ABB Discovery Early Talent Program is a two-year rotational program that is designed to develop your skills and grow you as a future leader of ABB. Participants can expect to gain an array of challenging and meaningful work experiences in their rotations across ABB in the US.

ABB Discovery participants start their careers with their peers, as a cohort. Each cohort starts annually in July and joins with a comprehensive orientation that helps assimilate you into the ABB culture smoothly.

After orientation, you will join your first rotation in one of our four business areas – Electrification, Motion, Process Automation or Robotics. Every rotation is composed of impactful work to help build your skills and gain business knowledge, while contributing to your team.

Our program also supports your professional growth outside of your rotation, through global and US professional development, networking, and social activities. These events will be facilitated by your dedicated program manager that will coach you throughout your journey.

At the end of your third rotation, you will be given a capstone project that provides solutions to real business problems. The capstone presentation will be a culmination of your rotations before you roll off into a permanent position that complements your skills and experiences.

ABB Discovery Business Program is a program across all of ABB's business lines and locations designed to develop business and leadership skills. It includes three rotations matched with business needs and the participant’s interests. Rotations can include roles in finance, accounting, HR, business strategy, marketing and more.

Discovery Participants will rotate through multiple US ABB businesses in roles that will prepare them to be technical, project, program, and people leaders.
