Endeavor Leadership Program

Developing Leaders of the Future

Endeavor is an 18 month, highly selective, rotational program that aims to develop business acumen and leadership skills through job rotations, mentoring, and leadership experiences.  Recent college graduates, both technical and non-technical, with either Bachelors or Masters degrees, will be considered to be a part of this unique experience that will enable and motivate individuals to determine their future leadership career path.

Endeavor participants will spend time in up to eight of Cymer’s business units, for a total of 18 months.  Throughout each of these rotations, participants will gain valuable experiences in leadership as well as a broad knowledge and understanding of Cymer business practices and the company culture.
