Hey everyone, it's always been a dream of mine to work for a ski company - so I'm trying to find an internship with a firm that is somehow related to the ski industry. Currently I'm in my first year of law school in New Hampshire at Franklin Pierce Law Center which is one of the top ranked schools for intellectual property in the country (believe it or not). I intend on becoming a patent attorney and don't want to get stuck in some boring firm. Anyway, I know this may be a long shot - but does anyone know someone I could contact that works for the design engineers or in any legal department of a ski company in regards to a possible summer internship? THANKS!!!!!!!!
Thanks man... yeah I really just need to get my foot in the door (aka an email address). Here's my cover letter to K2 that I sent to the general HR email listed on their website. Wouldn't you want to hire me??
To Whom it May Concern:
As a first-year student at Franklin Pierce Law Center, I am seeking practical legal experience in an effort to complement and improve my scholastic knowledge of the law.
I am particularly interested in a position at K2 because of the potential to work in a sports-technology environment and grow my skills. It has always been a dream to work for a company like K2 because of my obsession with sports - in particular skiing. Given my history of hard work, flexibility, and varied learning experiences, I feel that I would be an asset to K2. The prospect of a position where I would be able to interact with sophisticated products and high-caliber personnel on a regular basis is very exciting.
The attached resume highlights my achievements throughout my academic and extracurricular careers. I was an interdisciplinary engineering and management (IE&M) major in my undergraduate time at Clarkson University, and I have a profound interest in intellectual property and the interaction between business, technology, and the law. The IE&M program is a unique combination of fundamental business classes with technical electrical and mechanical engineering classes. I was able to build on these skills during my summer internships at Spectra Engineering, P.C., IBM, and E-Pro Engineering & Environmental Consulting in various engineering and business positions that required applying my technical abilities to practical real-world problems.
If you would like to see a writing sample, transcript, or list of references, please do not hesitate to ask. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet or speak with you personally. You may reach me anytime at (XXX) XXX-XXXX or XXXXXXXX@gmail.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Haha yeah, I just started here. Concord's not too shabby... got my pass to Loon/Waterville which has been awesome. Too bad the work is starting to pick up and I'm not going to be able to go skiing every weekend.
Ahhh nice... yeah he's definitely a nice skier, cool kid. I helped out with running the ski club @ Clarkson and he was friends with Dylan (Tuckered Out Films... made the movie Retrospect) who was also apart of running ski club.
haha... I'm still in law school man. Did really well first semester actually (top 20%). That's why I'm looking for a summer legal internship. Let me know if you guys are in NH - for Loon or Waterville cause I got my pass and Gregg (the snowboarder that I always ride with) is in Boston and comes up here every weekend... we'll show you how the shire throws down.
Nice work--good luck with that. You might also try some cool snowboard companies like Never Summer. I used to work at Option, but it's a bit far away from where you live...
Check out the contact info on the company sites. For example, the info on the Option site is the address for the actual factory and offices.
hey, bump for you.. i have a similar thread up, but what i'm interested in is a bit different. a lot of the sites do have contact information for general hiring departments, but it is still hard to get responses from them. i can give you the email addresses that i found on the sites though if you want, but they aren't any insider contacts by any means.
