An Intern Summer to Remember
October 11, 2011
LinkedIn wrapped up another phenomenal summer intern program!
As we head into our 3rd intern season, it seems like just yesterday when we first launched LinkedIn’s first intern program back in 2010. It’s been our privilege to work with these very talented students each summer. Their energy and enthusiasm is infectious (see Intern Flash Mob), their contributions enormous.
From Aki Maeda’s help with the homepage redesign, to Azarias Reda’s project of making search recommendations more relevant and useful resulting in a 55% improvement on number of clicks, our interns made a huge impact. We started with 34 Engineering interns our first summer, had 56 this past summer in our Sophomore year, and by next summer we’ll have over 100. With the success of our technical intern program, we’re also excited to expand our non-technical internships for next summer from Business Operations to Product Marketing Management.
As we ramp up our campus recruitment efforts, we are also thrilled to launch our University Careers website at Studentcareers.linkedin.com. This is where you will see our campus recruiting schedule, student testimonials, photos, videos, and most importantly available internship opportunities.
Our interns are truly the future of LinkedIn and we can’t wait for the next class to arrive! If you know any college students or recent grads who might be interested in working at LinkedIn, please send them our way.
