Do you know a female student who could benefit from a paid technology internship?
The Michigan Council of Women in Technology has launched an internship program that provides opportunities for young women to get experience in technology-related jobs at companies that donate to the organization.
It’s a win-win situation: It allows MCWT to give back to its partners by recruiting top talent for their open internships while serving as another tactic for MCWT to encourage and advance women in technology. After all, gaining work experience and developing professional contacts often positions students for future success.
Candidates must provide a resume with residency status, be members of MCWT (student memberships are $20) and hold at least a 3.0 grade point average.
MCWT will match candidates from local colleges to three- to four-month positions this summer with partner companies like Ford Motor Co., Valassis, Consumers Energy, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Comerica.
Interns will receive several benefits from participation:
* Mentoring throughout the program
* Admission to social events throughout the summer, including a complimentary ticket to the MCWT Technology Career Summit in September
* Recognition at the MCWT Annual Signature Gala in November
Interested parties must submit their resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 30. MCWT will coordinate interviews performed by the partnering companies and notify candidates selected for positions.
