The Summer of Biz (SoB) story
Summer of Business (SoB) is a unique Wellington based business internship programme. We connect enlightened Wellington employers with top local HR & Marketing students for paid summer jobs.
We offer industry led workshops and carefully crafted internships to give current students and recent graduates the skills required to gain and excel in their first HR or Marketing role. This exposes employers to the fresh and eager talent emerging from our local tertiary institutions.
We are a bunch of passionate industry folk from across the HR & Marketing fields. Day-to-day you will find us currently studying, kicking off our graduate careers, or as continuous game changers in our long (in some cases, very long) careers. Our common belief is that New Zealand students and the HR & Marketing professions can be even greater when brought together, and this program aids that vision.
We are the younger sibling of Summer of Tech, who are also one of our generous sponsors.
We are grateful for the ongoing support from all our sponsors and partners, and also to the many volunteers who give up their time and share their knowledge and expertise. Thank you!

At Summer of Biz we passionately believe:
- Commitment creates results – the more you put in, the more you’ll get out.
- In putting your best foot forward – your actions speak louder than words.
- Doing is integral to learning – we provide opportunities for you to gain hands-on experience and apply knowledge without fear of failure.
- We’re in this together – when talented interns and enlightened employers are brought together everyone wins. We don’t throw people in the deep end.
- We can make a difference – we are community driven, providing a bridge between formal education and industry experience.
