eBay Inc. Interns Are in the House
By: Cicely Wedgeworth
The first class of interns for 2013 in North America showed up ready to work on Monday, May 20. At San Jose’s North campus, 70 interns (who moved into their company-subsidized digs last weekend) got off a bus, some toting their brand-new MacBook Pros, browsed a breakfast buffet and sat down for a greeting by Laura Chambers, head of University Programs at eBay Inc.
Across North America, 102 interns started work on Monday. We are expecting more than 500 interns to join us this summer in North America, and more than 700 in our offices around the world.
“We’re so excited to welcome this year’s class of interns, and they’re eager to meet their new colleagues and learn all about eBay Inc.,” Chambers said.
“We’re going to show them ways they can make an immediate [business] impact through their project work, which has been selected through a competitive process to make sure that they’re working on the coolest stuff that the company has to offer,” added Jen Lamorena, senior manager, University Programs.
