How to apply: Go to and click on one of the career option they have listed on the page. The selection will take you to a page where you upload your existing resume and paste your cover letter into the text box. Then click “continue.”

Deadline for Applications: They just say they are currently accepting application for fall of 2009 but they don’t list when this page was last updated. One probably just has to submit an application about six months prior to the semester they want to do the internship and then follow up by phone.

Contact Person: They don’t list a person. The computer system apparently receives all the applications because they want people to upload them electronically. HR is probably who makes the final decision, though.

You copy and paste a cover letter in the text box and then upload you resume as a type of attachment. Then press “submit profile.”
