This is it. If you don’t find yourself a Summer internship soon, it’s going to be too late. This is our third to last post about Summer internships for a while. We’ll be covering two non-profit summer internships this weekend, and then we’re going to take two weeks to prepare for covering Fall internships. Now that you know our plans, here’s one more company that is still hiring Summer interns. Hello is a Culver City, CA based interactive design agency. They have an extremely impressive portfolio, and from what we can tell they are still hiring Summer interns.

First of all, apologies to our e-mail subscribers. For some reason yesterday’s post didn’t get sent, but it should have been included with today’s post. Hopefully it won’t happen again. As for internships, it’s getting harder every day to find quality opportunities to write about, but we’re planning sticking with posting about opportunities for this Summer for at least a few more weeks. Even if you’re a bit desperate for an internship, you should try to find something that will actually be worth your while. Don’t just get an internship for the sake of getting an internship. If you’re interested in media, make sure that your internship has something to do with the Internet. A company like CNET Networks is perfect, because they have a proven track record, but they’re still a new media company.

The Open Planning Project

There is a constant struggle that almost all non-profits endure – it’s organizing people. Whether they are rounding up volunteers, reaching out to donors, hiring employees, or putting together a leadership team, non-profits rely on well managed groups of people to enact change. The most effective non-profits are the ones that navigate these challenges without a hitch. Many people complain that non-profits are disorganized and suffer from poor leadership, and that is often true; however, The Open Planning Project, a non-profit itself, is hoping to change that by offering a suite of online tools to help other organizations become better organized.

I’ll admit it; I’ve become a mild Twitter addict. I just keep finding internships to write about by scanning tweets and following the links that they contain. It’s getting late in the game, and harder and harder to find companies that are still looking for Summer interns, but using unorthodox methods can turn up some great results. Most recently, I found a link to a post by a Sun Microsystems employee who is looking for two interns. Her post led us to Sun’s main Careers site, which truly impressed us.

Sometimes we like to get a little creative when we look for internships. It almost becomes a game for us. We hear about something, start researching, and piece together enough information so that we can give you a good idea of what the internship is all about and how you can apply. For some reason some companies don’t think to post their internships on their own websites, which makes finding reliable information a lot harder. Our daily Tweetscanning for internships turned up a link to a closed forum post about Freeverse. That piqued our interest, so we kept researching the video game and software developer.

Sometimes we’re really surprised to find that great companies who are known to have great internship programs are still looking for interns in late (yes, it’s now late) April. We have no idea what the explanation for this is, but it’s good news to all the procrastinators out there that is still looking for Summer interns.

Pepperjam Logo

When I hear the name Pepperjam, the first thing that comes to my mind is the television show Pepper Ann from One Saturday Morning. That’s actually really embarrassing to admit, but I hope that you’ll overlook it when you see how cool of a company Pepperjam is. They have “Free Pizza Fridays, Ping Pong, video games (ie: Nintendo Wii, Guitar Hero), free Red Bull and music all day.” Now forget that I admitted to ever knowing anything about the show Pepper Ann.

Gallup Logo

Maybe you’re a political junkie and love watching the mud fly, but we’ve been sick of this election since it’s started. Little tiny details get blown out of proportion, and things that should be a big deal are often ignored. The media is constantly measuring and analyzing the effect of these mini-controversies on voter sentiment by loosely interpreting poll data to fit their pre-conceived notions. We must be alone in our political fatigue, because the appetite for up to the second information appears to be constantly growing. With so much new information coming out every day, the need (for the media at least) to keep the pulse of the nation has never been greater. That means that for the next half-year you’ll be hearing the name Gallup day in and day out.

Are you enamored with the power of free markets? Is
Trading Places your favorite movie? Are you heartbroken that you waited too long and can’t find an internship in finance? There’s no need to get down, for there are still great companies in financial fields who are hiring Summer interns. Take the CME Group for example, which is “a combined entity formed by the 2007 merger of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) and the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT).”

When I was growing up, I had a friend whose Mom only let him watch PBS on tv. That was back in the days of Ghostwriter and Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego, so I guess it wasn’t too bad, but I still felt sorry for him. I didn’t know any better. I thought Nickelodeon and Saturday morning cartoons were as good as it could get. Well, I’m not sure my friend turned out any better than the kids who had access to 100 channels, but I do wish that I had spent more time watching educational programming, and less time watching reruns of Saved By the Bell over and over again. Just think how smart I would be if the area of my brain that is permanently occupied by early 90s sitcom trivia was instead filled with something useful like what you find on programming on the Public Broadcasting Service

Real estate. Don’t let those two words scare you away. Just because the market is ugly right now doesn’t mean that you should stop considering a future career in realty. First of all, you’re at least a year from graduation – market conditions will likely change (although not necessarily for the better). Second, we’re really good at finding you great internships in struggling industries – like how we told you to look at non-profit internships in finance. Third, a bad market almost always yields new opportunities for innovative companies. Redfin is a company that we’ve found that is insulating itself by using technology and price competition to take advantage of a weak market, and they’re still hiring interns.

Two weeks ago we talked about Google’s Summer of Code, which isn’t really an internship program. Then today we featured Google’s entry-level jobs on One Day, One Job. And we’re sure you’ve read our article How to Use Google to Find a Job (or Internship). Google, Google, Google. Well when we saw that Google still had internship opportunities listed as available on our website, we couldn’t turn down a chance to write about our favorite topic.

We’ve spent the last few months dreaming up ways to trick you for April Fools’ Day. We considered writing about six figure internships or writing about an internship with an A-list celebrity, but nothing really seemed all that funny – or believable. The web is all about pranks on April 1st, and we’re just going to stay out of it. Instead we’ve found a company that is not only relevant to today’s holiday, but is also hiring college students for Summer internships. We’re talking about the Motley Fool, a company that aims to “educate, entertain, and enrich” its customers with excellent financial advice. What company could be better to feature on April Fools’ Day than the one that owns

If you’ve bought a plane ticket or stayed in a hotel any time since about 1994 (ok, maybe a little later than that) you probably used a third party booking agent to at least look up fares or rates. Although the way airplane fares and hotel room rates are determined remain mysteries to most of us, it’s become a heck of a lot easier to travel economically when you have the Internet to help you plan. We’re probably not telling you anything you don’t know, so let’s start talking about internships at a company that you’re likely already familiar with,

Google Summer of Code

Google Summer of Code Logo

Google Summer of Code isn’t technically an internship program, but we guarantee that it offers a summer work experience that is as authentic and exciting as anything else that we’ve come across. Before we get to the details, it’s important that you understand what Google Summer of Code is, and what it is not. Google Summer of Code pairs college students with mentoring organizations to work on open source software development projects. These are not “internships,” and they’re not with Google – except for the few instances when a student is assigned to have Google as a mentoring organization. All work is done online, so there are no hours, no office space, and no travel. Summer of Code projects are intended to take up the whole summer, so signing on for another Summer internship or traveling the world is probably a bad idea; however, as long as you meet your milestones for project completion, you are free to do whatever you want with your summer.

Lately, we’ve seen a lot of search activity for internships in the video game industry, so we thought we’d deliver what many of you have been yearning for. We featured Insomniac Games’ entry-level jobs on One Day, One Job a couple months ago, and we were thoroughly impressed by their job offerings. When we decided to revisit them looking for internships, it was no big surprise to us that their offerings appear to be some of the best summer internships that we’ve seen.

Creative Commons

Creative Commons Logo

If you’re a college student who is looking for an internship now, you’re probably just a little too young to have appreciated the unbridled free downloading of everything under copypright that those of us who are a bit older enjoyed in college. Those were the days of Napster and AudioGalaxy, before the RIAA started suing students and instilling fear in the hearts of downloaders everywhere. If anything good has come out of the whole situation with student downloading, it is that there is probably a slightly better general understanding of copyright laws than there used to be (we admit it, we had to look really hard for that silver lining). If you take an especially strong interest in copyright, you might be interested in Creative Commons, a non-profit organization that addresses many of the issues that college students face when it comes to understanding how copyright works. Creative Commons isn’t going to get you off the hook when you get served a DMCA notice via your school’s administration, but they are helping to spread the ideology of openness when it comes to intellectual property.

LeapFrog Logo

We launched One Day, One Internship less than 2 weeks ago, and we’re already stuck with an extra post because of Leap Day. Ok, it’s not really an extra post, since we write every day regardless of the date. Still, it’s a little disappointing that every 4th year the man manages to squeeze an extra day of productivity out of us – whether it be at school or work. We’ve never checked, but we wonder whether school’s give students an extra day off sometime during a Leap Year. Anybody have answers? Leave them in the comments. We wish Leap Day was a worldwide day off that would allow everyone to find time to do those things that you never get around to doing. Instead, it’s just another day, unless, of course, you’re a college student with no Friday classes. Staying with the theme of Leap Day, we’re going to take a look at LeapFrog and their internships.

Facebook Logo

Today’s company needs no introduction, since there’s a good chance that you arrived at our site through one of the Facebook ad campaigns that we’re running. You’ve probably heard a lot about Facebook’s valuation and whether or not it’s very realistic, but that’s not as big a deal to an intern as it might be to someone who is looking for a full-time, entry-level job at Facebook. Since the only internships that we’ve found at Facebook are in software development, we think it’s more important to mention that Facebook is the second largest PHP-based website in the world. The things that they do with their databases to meet constant demand for up-to-the-second accuracy will awe even the most smug computer geeks. This post on the Facebook Blog about Facebook’s new East coast data center tells you all about how they’ve accomplished scaling their systems to stay ahead of demand.
