So Iâm sure all of you college students out there realize how much time per day we âwasteâ (according to our parents and teachers) on social media sitesâ¦seeing what Kim Kardashian is doing via twitter, predicting the pros and cons of the iPhone 5 on your word press blog, stalking that cute girl/guy that sits in front of you in Chem lab with the convenient aid of Facebook, or maybe tweaking your Linkedin account in preparation for the âreal world.â
What if there was a way for you to turn that âwastedâ time into a valuable internship doing the things you love? This high energy, challenging internship would not only provide you with much more marketing experience then any college class but also glowing recommendations from some of the most highly respected entrepreneurs in the Inland Empire.
Love to blog, tweet, like, and share?Â Then youâre our perfect candidate! Keep reading!

Perhaps the idea of working at a software company sounds more painful and boring to you then a 15-hour car ride with your senile great aunt Margery. (Youâre not alone, I once felt that same way myself) But not to worry! We may work hard at IT Retail, but we play even harder. The overall atmosphere at IT Retail is very chill. Forget about dress slacks, ties, skirts, and heels- the dress code is classy casual i.e. cords or kakis and a polo or nice shirt (just nothing threadbare with holes in it! I think you get the picture ; ) We also have dress down Fridays so you can come in wearing your favorite jeans and tee. Staff lunch is provided on Friday as well as an awesomely annoying but hilarious performance of the YouTube sensation âFridayâ by our very own director of marketing, Luke Henryâ¦just kidding! Heâs my boss, donât tell him I said that!
