Intern at MM!

Every year, we at MM like to bring on university or graduate student interns to contribute to the MMovement. From sustainable operations, to graphics, to strategy, to development and building, interns have the chance to learn about the business and offer their skills and recommendations to make us even stronger than before.

With COVID-19, this year has been unique. Just as we shifted our business online, so did we with our summer internship program, creating a virtual CaMMpus for 4 interns. We are very excited to see the ideas they come up with!        APPLY
