In January, 177 CUNY women interested in technology careers took part in Winternships at 46 companies. A Winternship is a two- or three-week mini-internship during the winter academic break for freshmen and sophomore CUNY women.
Winternships give these young women an immersive experience in different tech businesses/industries as well as a resume credential that will make them more competitive when applying for a summer tech internship.
Winterns and company sponsors were so excited about the experience they wrote about it. Here are a few of the first-hand experiences:
Learn about LinkedIn’s three rewarding nonstop weeks with the Winterns. Students were fully integrated with the video team, where they built a product that will actually be used on LinkedIn’s platform.
Two Sigma Ventures welcomed three CUNY students to their team through the Winternship program.
Macaulay Honors College at Baruch sophomore, Annmarie Gajdos, talks about her Winternship with Turner Broadcasting.
Paul, Weiss welcomed five CUNY students to their team through the Winternship program.
Macaulay Honors College at Baruch freshmen, Justina Hilbert, talks about her Winternship with Intersection.
