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, a paid, three-week, mini-internship experience during the January academic recess, 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 these young women into tech careers.
