The stress of applying for the perfect summer internship is particularly hard to handle with one more carefree week ahead.
To ease the process, we’ve compiled nine internships that are still accepting summer applicants, from Marvel Entertainment to Procter & Gamble to the White House.
Time Inc. (New York)
Deadline: Jan. 16
This prestigious publishing company offers summer internships that last eight to 10 weeks across 20 departments, from advertising sales, editorial and human resources to book publishing and marketing.

The Kennedy Center (D.C.)
Deadline: March 13
As an intern at the iconic performing arts center, you’ll participate in weekly seminars, score free tickets to performances and train with experts in one of nine departments.

The application is open to juniors, seniors and master’s candidates.
White House Internship Program (D.C.)

While many of the deadlines to be a “hilltern” have passed, there’s still an opportunity to have the president as your boss.

There’s still time to apply to Nordstrom’s merchandising and planning internship, which made Business Insider’s list of the top 25 internships of 2014.
