We hate to hassle you right after winter break, but now’s the time to start looking. According to internship.com, the best time to apply for summer internships is before spring break — and some of Baltimore’s coolest and most interesting companies are just starting to post their 2013 internship listings. The details on a few of our favorites are below:
Under Armour: The sportswear company clothes Olympians, Ravens, and even Batman. Prospective interns will be happy to hear that the company lists 39 summer internship possibilities, including apparel designers, graphic designers, retail strategizers, and logistics analysts. Internships run from May 28 to August 9, and are based in Baltimore. Applicants should have at least a 3.2 GPA.
The International Rescue Committee: This international non-profit dedicated to aiding refugees has a strong Baltimore presence. Interns can expect hands-on work that furthers the IRC’s mission of “working together with legally admitted refugees to assist them in rebuilding lives and reuniting families in the greater Baltimore area.” Internship areas include reproductive health, public health, emergency preparedness, nutrition, gardening, and youth casework. Internships must last at least 3 months.
Baltimore Museum of Art: The BMA has yet to post its 2013 positions, but odds are they’ll resemble last summer’s options. Those included a textiles-focused internship in the department of decorative arts, a photography cataloguing project, and a lighting design and installation internship — among many others.
T. Rowe Price: The financial firm takes pains to ensure that its interns gain hands-on experience and get one-on-one coaching from project managers and mentors. Each intern is assigned a summer-long project, and, in return, receives a salary “based on year of study and relevant experience.” Internships are available in various departments, including accounting, investments, finance, information technology, and communications and design. Prospective interns should be rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors in college with a major related to the internship area and a minimum 3.0 GPA.
