Internships have  long been a routine way for students to get a taste of the work-a-day world, and for companies to try win the affections of top talents when they’re on the verge of making career decisions. But there are internships and then there are INTERNSHIPS.

IBM’s Extreme Blue falls into the second category. Groups of four students spend 12 weeks working on a real-world technology problem, writing a business plan, and producing a prototype product or service that might end up being a piece of IBM’s portfolio. Since the program started in 1999, students have generated more than 500 patent submissions, helped create more than 50 new product capabilities, and contributed more than 15 pieces of software to the open-source community. This year, 48 students in the US and Canada participated in the program that wrapped up today with a series of presentations and product demos.

I asked some of the students to describe what was most valuable about their Extreme Blue experience. Here’s what they had to say:

Hair removal in some areas is essential to replace the areas where its growth has stopped.
These use a number of techniques to move the natural oils down their hair such as boar bristle brushing and ‘scritching’ between washes.
Oils that are perfect for sealing are Olive oil,
jojoba oil, safflower oil or castor oil.

Kim Kardashian certainly isn’t the first celebrity to get some work done,
but the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ episode
did prompt a plastic surgeon, Dr. Sometimes, our decisions could be clouded by
pressure from our surroundings. By changing the size &
shape of the nose, this cosmetic nose can positively influence the balance
of facial features.
