About Corning Incorporated

Corning’s impact on society is real: from groundbreaking inventions in glass and ceramics to lifesaving and life-changing technologies. We draw on materials-science leadership, pioneering manufacturing processes, and industry expertise to make vital contributions to the world.

Three core technologies anchor the work we do at Corning: glass science, ceramic science, and optical physics. We take these technologies to market across five business areas, which we call Market Access Platforms (MAPs).

We cultivate careers of discovery, respect, and partnership to help employees meet the toughest challenges and reach their highest potential. We are a global network of industry-leading professionals empowered by a culture of flexibility, collaboration, learning, and innovation to solve the toughest problems across a diverse range of industries.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to Corning’s belief in the fundamental dignity of The Individual – one of our seven core values. We are committed to providing an inclusive environment where all employees can thrive.

We proudly sponsor a variety of ERGs, which represent vital employee constituencies, and we continue to expand our chapters all over the world.

Our sustainability journey emphasizes safety, innovation, and community engagement. In recent years, we’ve expanded our scope to include a broader focus on renewable energy, reducing waste, and designing and manufacturing products with sustainable attributes in partnership with our customers.

We offer a competitive, comprehensive career development, compensation, and benefits program to our employees. We call it Total Rewards: Total Health, Total Wealth, Total Self. The programs reflect our commitment to supporting your financial, career development, health, and life goals.


IT Intern, Service Desk Agent / KB Librarian

June 2022 - August 2022 Corning, NY
“I had a great experience at the IT Service Desk at Corning Inc. You are taught everything you need to know and encouraged to ask questions, while also being sensible and learning on your own. This has just the right amount of training vs. independent work, and there is not someone constantly looking over your shoulder. The team is communicative and collaborative and I enjoyed working with all the people on the team! I also enjoyed the calls I took with the users, who often made me smile, gave me compliments, or made me laugh. Most people at Corning is relatable and cares about you and your professional development. ”
