Landing one or more summer internships nearly doubles the likelihood of landing a job within six months of graduating from college. We also know that employers look for internship candidates that have some tech experience on their resumes, so it is a classic Catch-22. If you don’t have a ‘connection’, how do you land that first tech internship?
The Winternship program, a series of career development workshops and a paid, three-week, mini-internship experience, is an innovative program that creates a new pathway into those coveted summer internships. In just three weeks, ‘Winterns’ get immersed in their host company’s business and work on a challenge project.
Over 80 companies have hosted almost 500 Winterns in the last few years and the results have been amazing in terms of launching students into tech careers.
