Computer Science Internship in Silicon Valley + $1,000 Scholarship
You’ve worked hard to get to where you are.
You’ve spent hours, days, weeks, maybe even your entire life studying. Preparing for your education and, eventually, full-time employment.
Most full-time jobs don’t want to hire you unless if you’ve had some hands-on experience.
But you haven’t had time for real-world experience because you have been studying for your science program intensely your whole life.
So how do you get a little bit of hands-on experience without diving into full-time employment?
Through an internship program.
And we may be able to help with that.
We are excited to announce that we are offering an incredible internship experience to one hard-working, curious, and creative individual.
