We Make What Matters Work.

You want to make an impact in the world. At Eaton, we’re solving some of the toughest challenges on the planet. Our Early Talent Programs ensure that you have a multitude of opportunities to make an impact across a global organization. Participants in our Early Talent Programs work to solve real-world challenges while developing the skills required to lead at the next level. Early Talent assignments hold true significance to our businesses. In turn, participants gain enriching and diverse experiences and work side by side with experienced leaders to power their careers.

What Sets Our Early Talent Programs Apart

  • Each individual’s development experience is customized to help participants reach their potential; no two participants will have the same experience or set of responsibilities.
  • Participants receive cross-functional exposure. They have opportunities to build their skills and try on different roles early in their career, ultimately maximizing their potential for consideration for a variety of future roles.
  • By keeping our programs small and selective, we are able to make hiring decisions based on each candidate’s unique skill set and high potential.
  • The opportunity to learn from senior leaders is a part of the fabric of every experience.

Your career matters – and we’re here to make it work. Are you ready?
