I graduated late 2011, got a job last year which I've had since June 2012. It's an OK job, but it's not what I want to do in the future. I've got two main jobs or responsibilities - so I need to do a part time job within my full time position in almost part - time hours each week. It's not going to further my career, as my "extra" responsibilities which relate to my finance degree aren't recognized in my title or job description.

Is it okay to email and ask for an internship from a company which I know I want to work for, given that I have been working for a year?

I think it never hurts to ask in email such a question about interning, but you may get a better response if you get introduced to someone who is already at that company. Try email first, and if you don't get a response or the answer you want, try another approach. Best of luck to you.

It's definitely OK. I did it myself and got some really good experience (but I didn't get paid directly).

Interns are all ages and in all kinds of situations these days, with people getting masters degrees as late as in their 50s, and I do know several mid-life people who did internships following grad school.
