About the program:

Business Internships are typically offered in the following business areas:

GMS Sales and Operations:

When our millions of advertisers and publishers are happy, so are we! Our Google Marketing Solutions (GMS) team of entrepreneurial, enthusiastic and client-focused members are the “human face” of Google, helping entrepreneurs both individually and broadly build their online presence and grow their businesses.

We are dedicated to growing the unique needs of advertising companies. Our teams of strategists, analysts, advisers and support specialists collaborate closely to spot and analyze customer needs and trends.

Together, we create and implement business plans broadly for every type of businesses.

Large Customer Sales:

Our Large Customer Sales teams partner closely with many of the world’s biggest advertisers and agencies to develop digital solutions that build strong businesses and brands.

We enjoy a bird’s eye view on the massive transformation occurring as advertising shifts to mobile and online platforms.

We’re uniquely situated to help shape how companies grow their businesses in the digital age. We advise clients on Google’s broad range of products across search, video and mobile to help them connect instantly and seamlessly with their audiences.

Google Cloud:

Google Cloud helps millions of employees and organizations empower their employees, serve their customers, and build what’s next for their business — all with technology built in the cloud.

Our products are engineered for security, reliability and scalability, running the full stack from infrastructure to applications to devices and hardware.

And our teams are dedicated to helping our customers — developers, small and large businesses, educational institutions and government agencies — see the benefits of our technology come to life.


Know the user.

Know the magic. Connect the two. At its core, marketing at Google starts with technology and ends with the user, bringing both together in unconventional ways. Our job is to demonstrate how Google’s products solve the world’s problems–from every day to the epic, from the mundane to the monumental.

And we approach marketing in a way that only Google can–changing the game, redefining the medium, making the user the priority, and ultimately, letting the technology speak for itself.


Responsibilities and detailed projects will be determined based on your educational background, interest and skills.


Minimum qualifications:

Currently enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree program, and in your penultimate year of study.

Available for a 12-week internship during Summer 2019.

Preferred qualifications:

Returning to a full-time Bachelor’s or Master’s degree after the internship program.
