Does Your Firm Need a Summer Intern?

It’s April, which means that a bunch of first-year MBA candidates are freaking out about not having summer internships lined up yet. But we’re here to help, with our annual Desperate Interns Drive.

This is a lot like the Internship Rodeo from last November, except that it’s later in the game for both employers and employees.

So if your firm is looking to hire summer interns from the current crop of first-year MBA candidates, please let me know via email (

All postings will be put into peHUB’s password-protected MBA Forum section, and can include as much or little information as you’d like to provide. Minimums are firm type (VC, LBO, I-Bank, etc.) and job location. If you’d like to keep your firm identity anonymous, just be sure to let me know.

There is no fee for this service. For context, MBA Forum currently has over 1,900 verified members.

Addendum #1: If you are among the desperate, please do not email me your CV, photograph or any other such information. When the postings are ready, I’ll be sure to let you know (probably early next week).

Addendum #2: The Desperate Interns Drive is only for summer internships. If you want to find fulltime employees, please use our Careers board. Postings cost just $99 each, and can be purchased online with a credit card.

Addendum #3: Most of these postings will be for investment-related jobs. If you’re a budding entrepreneur, check out a program being launched today by Highland Capital Partners. It allows selected teams to spend the summer at Highland’s office — either in Massachusetts or California – which includes access to Highland investment professionals and other relevant resources. In fact, two of last year’s teams ended up getting seed funding from Highland. Info on how to apply can be found here.
