For some soon-to-be graduates, climbing the corporate ladder starts with a good pair of sneakers -- Nike's specialty of course. To get a foot in the door, graduate students can intern at the company's headquarters in Beaverton. Nike offers a paid ten-week program with a travel and living stipend.
Added bonus: Interns enjoy some of the same perks that full-time employees receive, including 50% off Nike clothes and footwear, access to an on-site sports complex and a jeans-and-sneakers dress code.
