The interns website is now live! What is this, shall you ask?
Well, Mozilla has a strong internship program. Period. Over the length of their stay with us, our interns work on highly visible projects and are immersed in our amazing community from day one. The question was how do we share our interns experience with people outside Mozilla ; that is students that would be interested in interning with us in the future.
The solution was interns.mozilla.com
You will be able to browse through all the projects our interns have worked on, find out more about our internship program (co-op opportunities are available too), figure out what schools Mozilla will be visiting, and much more. We're also in the process of adding videos from our interns presentations (coming soon).
A huge thanks to Morgamic for his amazing patience and all his technical expertise. Chris Howse, Sean Martell, Bret Reckard, Erica McClure, and Dan Portillo have been amazing, as usual.
But none of this would have been possible without our 2009 interns who have provided helpful feedback along the way, and played by the rules for the creation of this site. Thank you guys, and it's been a true pleasure having you in our office!
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me

If you're passionate about the web in general and would like to make it a better and safer place, then we definitely want to hear from you. This year, we've hired students in all of our groups: platform (backend development), l10n (Localization), Labs, Firefox (focusing on frontend development for the chrome of the browser), QA, Build, IT, Marketing, AMO (Add-ons), Web Dev, and even Mobile!
You'll get a chance to also watch the presentations of our current interns in a few weeks. They've done an awesome job!

Until then, we hope you'd stop by our booth and say "hi".

The website will include some general info about our internship program, what to expect from Mozilla, but also the possibility to interact with past interns. We'll also have a schedule of the career fairs will be attending in the Fall and the Winter. More importantly, interested students will be able to check out what cool projects our past interns have worked on.
While the project is still in "phase I", we should have a finished product before the end of the summer. Stay tuned for more info!

To rewind a bit, this whole journey started when my friend - Dan Portillo - got nominated for the Man & Woman of the Year title with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Read more info about this program here.
We've all been working very hard for this event and we're now all anxious to see how the night is going to turn out. But given the efforts we've put into it, Monte Carlo Night won't be anything less than marvelous!
Hope to see many of you there!
