Did you know that the Information and Communications Systems department at the Church offers some of the best internship opportunities out there. The internships offered are filled with loads of experience, fun activities, and great environment, and competitive pay. Many people are unaware that there are such amazing benefits and opportunities to work at the Church as a full-time or part-time intern. Presently, we have internships in Interaction Design, Development, Quality Assurance, Consumer Technology Research, Project Coordination, and Enterprise Management.

We're trying to find the best way possible to advertise these great internships. Any suggestions?? Let me know if you know of a student or a recent graduate who is looking to get experience in these IT fields or who is looking to work full-time for the church eventually. We're looking for bright, motivated, responsible, optimistic individuals to help us push the work forward here at the Church through our amazing internship program!

Hi, I am one of those students that you're talking about, and I'm definitely interested in the internship possibilities at the Church. I'm currently a junior in the Information Systems program at BYU, and I've been looking into getting an internship for this summer once I'm out of school. I've applied to one at the Church through eRecruiting, BYU's recruiting website, and I intend on going to the BYU Career Fair this coming Thursday and talking to the Church recruiters there.

One of the best places to find the kind of individuals you're talking about is at BYU. I'm sure there are other options out there, but from this side of the recruiting table, I don't really know what those would be other than visiting campuses.

I'll defiantly be stopping by the both.

In reference to CS 404, maybe we can have Joel come over to EC En 391. Lots of computer engineers over there. :D

I don't think anyone would object if you were to join that class temporarily. :)

I submitted my application online trying to get an internship for summer with the IT department for summer and I am still waiting for a response. I am an International student from Tanzania majoring in CIT at BYU-Idaho. I am real interested to work for the church as It will prepare me in helping out the church whenever it needs my expertise when I am back to Africa.

Still waiting...

Sorry about that Ben. We do have internships available; however, our hiring managers are still trying to work out the exact number of available internships between each department in ICS. I know you're looking to solidify your summer plans and I apologize for the delay. Hopefully, in the next week or so they'll be able to make some concrete decisions. Thanks for touching bases and I'll be sure to let the managers and recruiters know about your inquiry so that we can get back to you ASAP.

Nothing but frustration

I am writing to express my frustration with the recruiting process that the Church has. I'm a student at BYU-Idaho who is majoring in Information Systems. I applied for 4-5 position at the Church office and got notified about three. After the interview over the phone I got invited for the interview in Salt Lake City. Interview went well and they told me that I will be notified by the end of the week. It's been a while and nobody contacted me. I mean, at least they could have sent me an email notifying about their decision. I spent $65 and a whole day on the road and expected some respect. Seriously, is it really that hard to notify? There are a lot of students who are very interested in internships with the Church, because they feel they can make a difference, but it they will be treated like that no one will want to work there.
