2018 Summer Internships – Now Open!

Calling all life-long learners, intellectually curious explorers, and next-level “chin-resting-on-one-hand-pose” thinkers! We want YOU to apply to our 2018 Summer Internships at The Motley Fool.

For 8 weeks in historic Alexandria, Virginia, you can collaborate and innovate alongside our teams including Investing, Software Development, Editorial, Client Experience, Web Design, Web Engineering, New Ventures, and IT Support as part of the Foolish Internship experience. You will be a full-time Fool, working with your very own Mentor to help guide and advise you in your day-to-day. But regardless of your team or skillset, you may find youself learning how to code, researching the next big stock pick, AND escaping from a locked room by solving puzzles! Fools are not afraid to step outside of the box and push the red button that reads in big, bold letters, “DON’T PUSH.” We look for individuals who are not afraid to test and challenge their own knowledge, learn from the best (Fools, of course!), and share in our love of helping the world invest – better.

But enough about us! Are YOU ready to show off your chops for finance, writing, web design and development, or anything in between? If YES, please apply to the position(s) that best match your interests at our Careers website. (Keep in mind that each department has its own separate application.) The application deadline is January 31st.

Pro Tips: Show off your pizzazz. Show off your wit. Embrace what makes you a Fool! Take the time to embed your personality in your cover letter and supplemental questionnaire. We read every application (it’s true!), but more importantly, we’re looking for you to put your best foot forward at every stage in the process. PUSH THE RED BUTTON.

We bribed (oh, how we jest!) our Summer Internship Class of 2017 into sharing wonderful things about their experiences with us.

    1. Hi Selena! Summer internships typically run from June – August, but the exact dates aren’t set for 2018 yet. Thanks for your inquiry!
