Business Associate Intern 2013
Are you looking for a challenge? Google now offers internship opportunities throughout the year. These range from non-technical functions to roles where some technical knowledge could be advantageous. If you are studying Psychology or Art History, don't let an arts degree keep you from applying to Google. We have internships in many fields that could be right for you, located in various locations and multiple languages.
Business Associate Internship assignments are offered in the following business areas:
Sales and Customer Service
Google’s Advertising Sales and Global Customer Service roles find innovative solutions that meet our clients’ changing needs. We identify business challenges, collaboratively shape solutions that drive strategic initiatives and keep clients informed of the ways Google products can enhance their online and offline presence.
As masters of cloud computing, the Enterprise team helps small and large businesses, educational institutions and government agencies discover the wonders of "the cloud" and work smarter through Google Apps. Our technical and sales teams design and implement solutions for these organisations with custom features, security and support - all with Google's philosophy of innovation and ease of use in mind.
The name Google came from "googol", a mathematical term for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. And nobody at Google loves big numbers like the Finance team. Whether designing processes to support our global businesses, providing forward-thinking analysis or managing our day-to-day balance sheets, our seasoned accounting and finance pros create innovative solutions to a googol of challenges and keep our business on track.
Google's People Operations roles are focused on redefining "human resources" and preserving Google's unique culture in the way we attract, hire, develop and reward talented people.
Google Legal crafts innovative approaches for tackling some of the toughest legal challenges of the information age. Google Legal lets you tackle unanswered legal quandaries and create new precedents. Our innovative services raise challenging questions that demand creative and practical answers. We provide those answers by working at the crossroads of the law and new technology, helping Google build innovative and important products for users around the world. (Please note that Google does accept applications for Legal internships that start in 2014 in some instances.)
Product Quality Operations
The Product Quality Operations (PQO) team protects Google's users. We define and communicate product policies, and we defend Google's integrity by fighting spam, fraud and abuse across Google products. The PQO team ensures product quality for the company's expanding base of advertisers, publishers and users in more than 40 languages. We partner with Engineering to combat fraud and abuse across major products like Search, AdWords, AdSense, Google+, Wallet, and Maps.
Google’s Marketing team applies the same level of creative originality to Google’s marketing campaigns that the company has applied to online search and advertising. We support Google’s growth and revenue generating efforts through effective and results-focused marketing campaigns for both business and consumer products.
The Google Technical Services (gTech) team serves as the primary point of contact for our global Sales, Business Development and Partnerships teams to support our sales organisation across all products. We provide tools so that our sales teams can focus on generating revenue and leverage our strong relationships with Google’s Tech teams to enable our sales organisation to do multi-solution selling, launch and support new products, and help and engage our users.
Africa Internship Programme
The Africa team focuses on accessibility, relevance, and outreach. They want to make it easier for African users to access information on the internet, deliver more relevant content, and build relationships with Africans who are building the internet. Recent efforts in those areas – like Getting African Businesses Online, Gmail SMS, and Google Trader – empower Africans to make better use of technology in their daily lives.
