Launched in 2004, Facebook has made its mark on the world. It’s a publicly traded company that is worth billions of dollars and is recognized as the world’s leading social networking site. Over one billion active users worldwide log on to Facebook regularly to update statuses, upload pictures, contact friends, or exchange messages through their page. Everyone knows about Facebook, which makes it a great place to build your resume as an intern.
Facebook is based in Menlo Park, California and this is where most interns work, but there are Facebook offices located all over the US and around the globe. Internships last 12-weeks and focus on Design, Monetization, Product Management, Infrastructure, Marketing, IT & Security, User Experience, Data & Analytics, Online Operations, and Software Engineering. These positions pay extremely well – some interns report making over $6,000 per month, plus housing costs.
Facebook’s website spells out what they want in interns and employees. The goal is to make the world more connected and they claim they are looking for "trailblazers, hackers, and pioneers" to help achieve that goal. Facebook is huge and growing bigger by solving "big problems." Does this sound like something you can do?
Interns have access to the same information that the Facebook employees do and have the opportunity to work with them to make positive impacts on projects that will be seen by the entire Facebook community.
Known for the fun office atmosphere and younger vibe, Facebook is an ideal place to build your experience if you can land one of these competitive internship positions.
Facebook recruits student interns and full-time positions at many different universities across the USA. Current internship opportunities are listed on their Career page under University Students and New Grads. Click on the internship you want to apply for and there is a brief description about the internship, responsibilities, and requirements. There is also an Apply Now button that will lead you through the application process.
