It is the place to go to find reviews and recommendations written by people just like you. With over 90 markets worldwide, do you Yelp?
Yelp is a fantastic place for social media and software engineering internships. Most interns work in the San Francisco office, but some may be able to land internships in other parts of the US or Europe. This up and coming social media site is a good place to pursue internships in Software Engineering, Product Management, UI Design, Marketing, and other niches.
Yelp is proud to offer a fun work environment that includes hard work, ping-pong, Nerf dart throwing, and vitamin water. Yelp interns are paid well and Yelp tries to make work not feel like work.
Interns are hired throughout the year and are treated as part of the team. They work with professionals to help improve Yelp products and in the process gain valuable experience. Many are hired on permanently upon completion of their internship or education.
