Make an impact
Whether you’re launching an advertising campaign or redefining "human resources," your summer project will have a lasting impact - on your team, on our clients and users, and in the communities where we live and work.
Build your foundation
From project management to data visualization and beyond, the professional skills you’ll learn as a BOLD intern will provide you with a strong foundation to start building whatever type of career you want to have.
Create a community
Through working with a mentor, engaging with Employee Resource Groups and forming relationships with other interns, you’ll create a community to help support your personal and professional development throughout the summer and as you launch your career.
Learn from leaders
Behind Google’s simple search window is one of the most complex businesses in the world, and it’s run by an equally diverse group of people. As a BOLD intern, you’ll hear from industry leaders and fellow Googlers - gaining insight into how they’ve navigated their careers and how they’re working to change the technology landscape.

"BOLD, like Google, is defined by the people behind the program. Working on high impact projects at one of the most innovative companies in the world was incredible, but the experience was made unforgettable because of my invested managers, caring mentors, and passionate peers."

"The BOLD Internship program gave me the opportunity to find my passions in the workplace. I now know that helping people, in any capacity, is the skill that I really want to grow full time - and that insight is invaluable."
People Operations Rotation Associate
"I learned how to grow an idea into something real: build a case, apply data and get others to buy into your vision. That’s how you influence the business, or any project, for the better."
Who should apply to the BOLD internship program?
The Building Opportunities for Leadership and Development (BOLD) Internship Program is a paid summer internship for rising undergraduate seniors that are interested in working in technology and full-time opportunities at Google. We’ve designed our program to expose historically underrepresented students in this field to career opportunities in the industry. Students from all schools, and students who identify with a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology industry, including but not limited to Black, Hispanic, Native American, students with disabilities, and veterans, are encouraged to apply.
How do I apply?
Check out the job description below and complete Part 1 of the internship application. Please note that the application is open September 17th through November 12th 2018.
What is the scope of the program?
BOLD interns are placed on teams across Sales, Marketing, gTech, and People Operations (Google's Human Resources). Their work is core to Google and varies in scope and in length - ranging from the day-to-day work of a full-time Googler to a single long-term project lasting the duration of the internship.
What kinds of training opportunities are available within the program?
Outside of core project work, BOLD interns have the opportunity to take advantage of the learning and development programs Google offers. We encourage interns to invest in themselves and grow their personal and professional skills.
What happens at the end of the program?
Our ultimate goal is to bring great talent to Google. All BOLD interns will have the opportunity to be considered for a full-time role at Google.
