    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    no interviews, but many personal statements. You can apply through ucla websites. There are more internships for Daily Bruin other than marketing. There are about 5-6 questions you have to ask for applying. I think it is more important to put your passion rather than experiences because it is college internship. They know it is hard for students having professional experiences in background.
