Ever since Google, the brainchild of Larry Page and Sergey Brin, first entered the scene in 1996, the search engine has remade the technological landscape. Incorporated in 1998, the whiz kid of Silicon Valley now has worldwide web property. Known for its search prowess and targeted marketing, Google is constantly expanding its technological reach, covering everything from email and blogs to online books and videos.
At a place where employees see their work have a worldwide impact very quickly, internships are fast-paced and exciting. Google interns from computer engineering backgrounds work on everything from creating logos to conducting research, and the company puts their coding to use. Internships aren’t just for budding software engineers—Google also offers positions to undergrads, grad students and MBA candidates in areas like sales, marketing, advertising, product management, finance and business operations. While interns may not get to be the Google doodler (Dennis Hwang has that gig), they do learn the workings of the world’s largest search engine firsthand. Plus, they get all the Google perks—TechTalks (weekly company lectures), a mentor (or “host”), intern events (such as a night at the theater, rock-climbing, bowling or a cruise) and continuous training during their stay at the Googleplex.
Interested students should check the job website (www.google.com/jobs/students) for open positions and the application.
Google is always looking for interns with the right mix of talent and enthusiasm. Open to university students at all levels who are able to problem solve, code and design. Non-engineering positions are open to talented undergrads and MBA students interested in advertising, business development, sales, ἀnance, marketing, product management and other areas.
