Mission of the Internship Program
Injected Media offers both paid and unpaid internships for interested undergraduate and graduate students. Past interns have had diverse educational interests, such as marketing, business management, communications and public relations. Some interns have more technical expertise from science and engineering majors and can contribute more technically to IM projects. IM Interns can expect to work on substantive projects, develop professional skills, and benefit from the personal attention of a mentor.
The primary purpose of the Injected Media internship program is to give students an opportunity to learn about technology marketing business practices. By the end of the internship, each student will have the skills and knowledge necessary to allow him or her to make a significant contribution to technology and marketing.
