Internships

The internship of a lifetime starts here…
Welcome to PIE’s Internships page. Our internships offer you the opportunity to work in a fast-paced, creative, growing businesses while developing your resume and earning valuable experience in the field. Most interns put in about 10 hours a week at their job sites working on everything from User Experience and database coding to marketing, social media management and even environmental remediation and chemistry. Our diverse internship selection means that you have the ability to find a place to work that truly interests you.

Applying for one of the internships that are currently offered, forwards your resume and application to your potential future boss and BCC the PIE admins. If you are contacted directly by the employer, set up an interview. Otherwise, you will be assisted by the PIE program coordinators to get in touch with the employer to help you get that internship. Furthermore, PIE works closely with faculty and associated departments at UCSC to help you get credit for your work. Most likely, the internships through PIE either deliver you credit or are paid through the employer.

Along with the opportunity to work at some of the coolest places in and around Santa Cruz, being a PIE intern means that you have a invaluable resource that will help nurture your passion for innovation and entrepreneurship. Our speaker series allows you to learn from and build contacts with some of the top innovators in the industry. You will also make friends and contacts with other PIE interns who are just as motivated and inspired as you. Not only will you benefit from earning the experience in your industry of interest but you will find yourself finding a network of contacts that you will use throughout your life.
