The school year just started, but if you’re in college, you know the rush to find a summer internship has already begun. And The Fool has already begun looking for YOU – bright, motivated students, in college or grad school, who want to spend two months working for an awesome company.
We’ve got openings for interns who are interested in investing, writing, editing, and software development. Why spend your summer with us? For one thing, we’ll pay you! You’ll also get to learn from some amazing Fools, work on great projects, and take intern-specific classes in a number of topics (like personal finance, investing, crafting your resume, and more!). You’re eligible to enjoy some of our sweet benefits, like free fitness classes and, because you earned it with all the fitness classes, free cake once a month. Our metro-accessible office is located right outside of Washington, DC, arguably one of the most fun cities to live in as an intern. Did I mention that we’ll pay you?
Don’t take my word for it – some of our 2012 interns wanted to share their experience:
“I couldn’t have asked for a better summer internship than working at The Motley Fool. Beyond the amazing work environment, The Fool made sure to involve interns in important work, to the point where I felt crucial to the business by the end of the summer. You will meet fantastic people, learn about the world of finance from a Foolish perspective, and never want your summer to end.”
– Charlie, Fool.com intern
“The Motley Fool maintains a unique balance between a fun, happy work environment and extremely high performance. Not only did I have a great time last summer interning with TMF, but I learned two new programming languages, networked with professionals inside The Fool and outside, began investing personally, and I felt I had a lasting impact on my team and our product.”
– Desmond, Software Development intern
“My summer at The Fool was awesome. I learned more about investing during my two-month internship than in two years of studying on my own. The atmosphere is truly welcoming. Whether I was attending classes with the Analyst Development Program, doing research for a service, or just debating a particular company’s future with The Fool’s analysts, I always felt like part of the conversation. If you enjoy studying companies and talking stocks with other true investing nerds, you’ll love interning with The Fool.”
– Frank, Investing intern
“I never thought that working at an investment advisory can be so much fun! I’ll always remember The Fool for its great work atmosphere, wonderful people, lots of freedom, and lots of free food! One particular aspect that I loved about the place is Fool U classes. You can learn anything from How to Invest to How to Throw a Frisbee here! I think the people that work here are wonderful, creative, and really talented at what they do. Personally, working with the people in the Software Dev team was fun and enriching. I had a great summer!”
– Nilesh, Software Development intern
