Hasbro IT Internship

CHANGE: THIS IS NOW A 4-6 Week assignment. See more recent blog post for more details.

I was just notified by my contact at Hasbro that they are looking for an IT internship. This is a great opportunity. This pays $17.50 per hour and is full-time for the summer. In my opinion, this could be filled by a sharp MIS major. But there may be other business majors with these skills so I have blasted the announcement out to all majors. Please respond with a cover letter and resume to the contact person. I suggest if you are interested, apply as soon as possible.
