If your school offers a stipend for work-study or internships, this factor is figured into the compensation. Interns are not employees of Creative Commons, and will not be entitled to any benefits provided to CC employees. Interns must make their own housing, insurance, and transportation arrangements.
The internship is based at Creative Commons offices located in downtown Mountain View, California, easily accessible via car and public transportation. The facility is an open pod setting; amenities include a communal kitchen and free parking. Intern is supervised by the Global Network Manager but will also be interacting with internationally-based staff and volunteers, so some late night and early morning work may be required.
