Uptime, Inc.

We could use two interns, each working 12 to 16 hours per week. Ideally Id like to start with individuals that are moving towards the end of their schooling so as to potentially hire them after a semester or two of working.

Network, Server and Desktop Support


In the Presidio, no further details at present.

Arkipelago Book Webmaster

The company is in San Francisco. It's not clear whether this is a paid or unpaid position.


I work for a web design firm that is in dire need of an intern. The company is E.Mochila, we make web sites for CPAs and accountants as well as supply them with content.

It is unpaid, but they would get a great recommendation and college credit if needed and the company does treat us to drinks a few times a month.
