College Recruiting for '10 season...

This Fall, Mozilla will be attending the following career fairs:
- CMU on Sept. 15, 2009
- MIT on Sept. 17, 2009
- UT Austin on Sept. 23, 2009
- Stanford on Oct. 6, 2009
- University of Washington on Oct. 29, 2009

The schedule will also be posted on our interns website that should go live by the end of August. The website will provide information on what one can expect by getting an internship at Mozilla, and the type of projects available.

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!

For more info, please feel free to email me!
Until then, we hope you'd stop by our booth and say "hi".

Interns Website

In our willingness to always remain open and share as much info as possible with folks who aren't part of Mozilla, we've decided to create a website for our interns classes this year. The idea is to provide upcoming interns with additional details about our internship program, and therefore create a portal where past and new students can interact. The project is just starting and it's kind of fun to collaborate closely with our interns 09 on this stuff.

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!
