Here at SURGE, we aim to make a difference in the State College community and beyond. Projects at SURGE allow students from a variety of majors to collaborate and gain real-world experience. Interns further develop the skills that they have learned in the classroom as well as explore facets of the business world that they may not otherwise have been exposed to. We will help determine a schedule that fits your availability and are always seeking interns. 

SURGE is all about turning innovation into action. Interns will work in teams, with one intern acting as the project lead. Unlike in other companies, you will steer these projects in directions that you see fit, from planning to execution. This requires you to perform extensive research, coordinate your efforts, take action and, most importantly, be creative!

Message from the CEO 

Thanks for taking the time to check out a possible internship with SURGE. We believe that the most important attribute employers look for in a potential employee is experience. Our goal at SURGE is to give Penn State students the opportunity to work alongside professionals and gain applicable experience by working on real, meaningful projects. SURGE specializes in corporate strategy, website development, logo design, social media, search engine optimization, marketing, sales, and sales support. Our clients range from small businesses and non-profit organizations to Fortune 500 companies, an array that will provide a rich variety of experience for an intern in any field of study. Depending on the project, you will be given an opportunity to grow and develop, thinking through problems and making strategic decisions while supported by talented professionals. At the end of your internship you will have built practical skills, developed confidence, and enhanced your resume. You might have even made some friends and connections along the way. This internship relies heavily on you—the intern—seizing the opportunity and being a creative self-motivated individual. Be prepared to be proactive. Thank you again for your interest.
