Fall internship positions are still open—apply today!

by Brett Smith Contributions Published on Sep 07, 2011 10:55 AM
Are you looking for some work experience this fall semester? The FSF still has several open internship positions for this fall!

We've extended our application deadline to September 14 for a term that runs from September 19 to December 16. Whether you're looking for work programs as part of your curriculum, or just want to get started building your resume, our internships offer a great way to gain experience while working to advance and promote free software.

Positions are available for:

  • Campaigns: Help plan and carry out actions that teach people about free software and related issues, through campaigns like and PlayOgg.

  • Licensing: Raise awareness about free software licenses by answering questions through email and web resources, and investigating license violation reports.

  • System administration: Use cutting edge free software to keep the FSF's servers and office systems running smoothly.

Apply today: Send a letter of interest and resume with two references by email to Make sure that your materials are in free software friendly formats (PDF and plain text work well), and include “Internship” in your subject line. If you can, please include links to code, designs, or sites you've made (personal blogs are okay!), and—most of all—things you've written. Please include URLs for these if you can; email attachments in free formats are acceptable too.

We prefer applicants who can work in our Boston office, but we'll consider others. These positions are unpaid, but the FSF will provide any appropriate documentation you might need to receive school credit or funding from other sources. We'll provide a pass for Boston's transit system or reimburse comparable local travel expenses to help offset those costs.
