A successful internship for us is one</p><p>where the intern works with their mentor on a well-defined goal that either has</p><p>product impact and/or results in a publication in an accredited conference. Towards</p><p>this end, we customize our internship project to each intern rather than forcing</p><p>interns to work on pre-specified topics.</p><p></p><p><b><u><span>How to apply?</span></u></b></p><p>Apply at the official job-posting or send us an email with your resume to</p><p><a href="mailto:rscRecruitment@criteo.com" target="_blank">rscRecruitment@criteo.com</a>.
