Location: ONLINE so you can join our team from wherever you are in the world!
Admissions Req: Currently enrolled in high school: 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade. Shoot us a quick email at connect@building-U.com. Attach a resume if you have one handy, but mostly just let us know why you’d like to explore becoming an intern with us!
Highlight: Hey, speaking of unique internship opportunities — how about getting your co-op hours in with a really rad non-profit dedicated to helping students like you navigate their post-high school plans? We at building-u are always looking for high school students to join our crew in collecting some of the awesome programs, opportunities, and scholarships out there and organizing them in an easy-to-search database that can spark ideas and motivate plans. As an R & D intern, you’ll get experience and guidance doing compressed writing within a time-frame, meet weekly with our R&D staff ninja’s to practice and hone your research and oral communication skills, and along the way you’ll be exposed to all sorts of one-of-a-kind programs that may just give you some direction as you map out your own future. And if you’re a social media junkie, we could use your skills in getting the word out about our resource database and exciting events through our instagram, snapchat, and facebook pages as well!
