Participants receive free career prep resources, training, and coaching to land a paid summer internship and, ultimately, to secure a full-time job offer in business, finance, or technology. Summer internships pay up to $1,300 per week. In 2015, 85% of SEO Career interns were offered full-time jobs at the end of their internships–either at their host company or another SEO Career partner.
While all are welcome to apply, we target U.S. Black, Hispanic, and Native American undergraduates (freshmen, sophomores, and juniors).
All undergraduate candidates must be attending an accredited, four-year, U.S. college or university. Transfer students must provide a transcript from both institutions and a cumulative GPA. Transfer students from a 2-year school must have a GPA at their 4-year school.
Freshmen may apply in their fall semester without a GPA. All other candidates must have a 3.0 minimum cumulative GPA to be eligible. We will also take your SAT or ACT scores into consideration as do our partner companies.
All majors are welcome. Relevant majors and/or coursework for specific roles are strongly encouraged. For example, finance, accounting, economics, STEM, and related business majors for business roles and computer science or electrical engineering for technology roles. All majors can be successful law candidates.
International students at U.S. institutions, who have F-1 visas and OPT or CPT work authorization, are eligible to apply. We do our best to match talented candidates with available opportunities for international candidates. International exchange students are not eligible.
