Facebook has been called a cultural phenomenon. It’s a platform that has exploded in the digital universe, making its name ubiquitous. Its perks are extraordinary, and the workplace culture is unrivaled.
Facebook prides itself on bringing the world closer together, and one way they do that is by recruiting curious and intelligent interns. At Facebook, interns hit the floor running. Beginning on Day 1, they begin to learn about what challenge they will tackle.

Facebook University is a highly-interactive internship program where students have an immersive experience with Facebook’s employees, products and services. It’s only an eight-week program, but during that time interns are introduced to all aspects of the organization. The experience teaches interns how to make a difference that matters.
To be considered for an internship, candidates must be pursuing a degree – bachelor's to PhD – in the relevant field.
Many qualifications vary across the organization, and may differ according to positions.
