Now accepting summer internship applications

Last year we set the application deadline for internships to February 1st, which was fine, and the deadline did a good job of forcing students to get off their butts and apply, but we made the mistake of not considering applications until they were all in, which we thought would be most fair. It was fair, but it also meant that by the time we even looked at the resumes, some great applicants had already accepted summer jobs at Microsoft. Grr…

This year summer internship applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so basically, if you’re a college student looking for an internship, you pretty much should just apply now, instead of puttering around indecisively.
