When should I apply?Our applications are now closed for full-time roles & internship opportunities. Don’t worry if you applied, we’re still considering you for a 2021 role at Twitter. 

Do I meet the requirements?You should be enrolled in a two to five year academic institution working on an undergrad, grad, or PhD degree. You must be eligible to work in the country where you would perform your internship. In the U.S., you must be at least 18 years old. Interns should also be able to complete the full duration of our internship programs.

What’s the hiring process for full-time roles and internship opportunities?Once your application is complete, our teams will review it. If a team is interested, we’ll reach out to begin the interview process. It goes like this:

  • First round: via phone or video conference
  • Following rounds: in person or via video conference

What does Twitter offer?Talk to your Twitter recruiter! Our offerings are market competitive for both full-time roles and internship opportunities. Your recruiter can fill you in on compensation and other benefits you may be eligible for. Eligible full-time candidates can receive relocation support, and eligible interns receive a housing and home office stipend. And of course, there is the unmatchable experience you’ll gain from working at Twitter.

Do you hire international students?Yes; you must have legal work authorization to work in the country where you perform your  internship. Our Global Mobility team will work with eligible students to review options for work sponsorship for both full-time roles and internships.

More about virtual internships:

  • How will I receive the support I need from my manager/mentor/teammates?
    With all Tweeps working remotely due to COVID-19, our teams have already had a lot of practice with managing, engaging, and supporting a remote workforce. We’ve also produced and shared tons of resources to help our managers and teams - and these tools will be available to you too!
  • Will I still get to experience Twitter culture?
    Yes! We are working hard to ensure your virtual internship program incorporates aspects of the unique and fun Twitter culture by giving you a taste of what it is like to be a Tweep. 
  • Will there be a chance to meet other Twitter interns
    Yes! @TwitterU is planning virtual programming that will allow you to connect with Twitter Interns from around the globe.
  • Will there be a chance to bond with my team? With other Tweeps?
    Yes! Twitter is actively providing creative ways to virtually connect with Tweeps. Teams have been connecting through things such as virtual team lunches or weekly coffee chats.

Are there internships for undergrad first-year students?No, but we do have #EarlyBird, a five-day virtual program for first year computer science students who identify as black, Hispanic/Latinx and/or Native American. Learn more about #EarlyBird at t.co/IBelong.

How about undergrad second-year students?#Second-year students can apply to Twitter Academy, which is a 12-week summer internship designed for historically underrepresented second-year computer science students (black, Hispanic/Latinx and/or Native American) interested in gaining hands-on and real-life experience in the tech industry.

I’ve already interned at Twitter once. Can I apply for another opportunity later?Absolutely.                                                                                                              

I applied and didn’t get it — what now?Try again! You can submit once per season. If you reapply in Fall 2021 for 2022 opportunities, your resume should show new experiences (like a new internship or extracurricular project).

What if I’m not enrolled in school right now?If you aren't enrolled in school when you apply, you aren't eligible for our intern opportunities. If you are an engineering college graduate with 0-2 years of work experience, visit our Engineering Early Career application. This role is for mid-entry level candidates interested in Engineering roles!
