What you do with your summer can have a huge impact on what you do with your life. Summer internships at Akamai typically run 10-12 weeks during the months of June, July and August, and successful summer interns often come back during the fall semester or over breaks.

- Form close working relationships with team members, mentors, managers and fellow interns
- Gain real-world work experience at one the world’s leading technology companies
- Participate in weekly lunch-and-learn development sessions with different Akamai subject matter experts to learn about the various departments and functions of the company
