Are you looking for a challenge? Google now offers business associate internship opportunities throughout the year in Lagos, Kenya and other countries in (Europe, Middle East and Africa)EMEA. These range from non-technical functions to roles where some technical knowledge could be advantageous. If you are studying Psychology or Art History, don’t let an arts degree keep you from applying to Google. We have internships in many fields that could be right for you, located in various locations and multiple languages. In addition, you will participate in a structured program of educational and social activities to ensure you have a productive experience at Google that helps you grow your personal and professional skills. Internships are available in a wide array of fields, all of which are listed below.
Business Associate Internship assignments are typically offered in the following business areas:
Africa Internship Program: The Africa team focuses on accessibility, relevance, and outreach. They want to make it easier for African users to access information on the internet, deliver more relevant content, and build relationships with Africans who are building the internet. Recent efforts in those areas – like Getting African Businesses Online, Gmail SMS, and Google Trader – empower Africans to make better use of technology in their daily lives.
Sales and Customer Service: Google’s Advertising Sales and Global Customer Service roles find innovative solutions that meet our clients’ changing needs. We identify business challenges, collaboratively shape solutions that drive strategic initiatives and keep clients informed of the ways Google products can enhance their online and offline presence.
Enterprise: As masters of cloud computing, the Enterprise team helps small and large businesses, educational institutions and government agencies discover the wonders of “the cloud” and work smarter through Google Apps. Our technical and sales teams design and implement solutions for these organisations with custom features, security and support – all with Google’s philosophy of innovation and ease of use in mind.
Finance: The name Google came from “googol,” a mathematical term for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. And nobody at Google loves big numbers like the Finance team when providing in depth analysis on all manner of strategic decisions across Google products. From developing forward-thinking analysis to generating management reports to scaling our automated financial processes, the Finance organization is an important partner and advisor to the business.
People Operations: Google’s People Operations roles are focused on redefining “human resources” and preserving Google’s unique culture in the way we attract, hire, develop and reward talented people.
Legal: Google Legal crafts innovative approaches for tackling some of the toughest legal challenges of the information age. Google Legal lets you tackle unanswered legal quandaries and create new precedents. Our innovative services raise challenging questions that demand creative and practical answers. We provide those answers by working at the crossroads of the law and new technology, helping Google build innovative and important products for users around the world. (Please note that Google does accept applications for Legal internships that start in 2015 in some instances.)
Product Quality Operations: The Product Quality Operations (PQO) team protects Google’s users. We define and communicate product policies, and we defend Google’s integrity by fighting spam, fraud and abuse across Google products. The PQO team ensures product quality for the company’s expanding base of advertisers, publishers and users in more than 40 languages. We partner with Engineering to combat fraud and abuse across major products like Search, AdWords, AdSense, Google+, Wallet, and Maps.
Marketing: Google’s Marketing team applies the same level of creative originality to Google’s marketing campaigns that the company has applied to online search and advertising. We support Google’s growth and revenue generating efforts through effective and results-focused marketing campaigns for both business and consumer products.
gTech: The Google Technical Services (gTech) team serves as the primary point of contact for our global Sales, Business Development and Partnerships teams to support our sales organisation across all products. We provide tools so that our sales teams can focus on generating revenue and leverage our strong relationships with Google’s Tech teams to enable our sales organisation to do multi-solution selling, launch and support new products, and help and engage our users.
Localization: The Localization team makes sure that all Google content is translated and localized into more than 40 and in some cases even more than 60 languages. If you are interested in the magic of localization at scale, apply for an internship with the l10n team. We have 3 types of roles available: project management, linguistic and tool development.
- Returning to education on a full-time basis upon completing the internship.
- Ability to commit to a minimum of 10 weeks and up to 6 months at Google.
