Five interesting local companies to work for


Get your feet wet in the entertainment business by applying for the Turner Trainee Team program, an 11-month paid position with benefits that allows recent grads to try their hand at the company's divisions, including Cartoon Network, TBS and TNT.


Not sure if you're ready for law school yet? Get a taste as a paralegal or staff employee for Alston & Bird, whose clients include Delta and the city of Atlanta. The megafirm has topped Fortune's "100 Best Companies to Work For" list eight years in a row for "work-life balance." The company even offers annual bonuses to hourly employees.


The global poverty fighter offers a variety of opportunities for do-gooders, from social networkers who promote CARE through MySpace, to auditing positions and health adviser jobs.


The Atlanta-based Internet consulting and development firm creates websites for businesses across the country. It's a big design house that creates innovative Web concepts in a laid-back atmosphere. (Employees even bring their pets to work sometimes.)


It's topped the list of U.S. News and World Report's "Best Pediatric Hospitals" list and the Atlanta Business Chronicle's "Best Places to Work in Atlanta" list for the wellness programs it offers to its employees. The company also lists several programs to help recent college grads start a career in pediatrics, including the 10-week summer nurse extern program, which sets nursing students up with mentors to help them find their health-care niches.
