It’s early March, but most of our local colleges and universities are midway through their spring semesters. This means that summer internship season is coming soon!
Many people are surprised to learn that Greensboro, North Carolina, is home to 50,000+ local college students. Though not all of them live here during the summers, many do, and that’s where Campus Greensboro comes in. This is our fourth year of partnering with Campus Greensboro for internship and mentorship opportunities.
Among other things, the organization runs the Campus Greensboro Fellows Program: “A competitive, 10-week summer program that includes a paid industry internship and opportunities to build your network, enhance your professional development, engage in the community, and explore Greensboro as a place to thrive as a young professional.”
At a time when most software development is done off-shore, Xtern Software's work is done locally from the Carolinas. Our developers are graduates of UNCG, Elon, and other local institutions. We are proving that tech can thrive outside of San Francisco, or even the Research Triangle.
That’s why we are excited to continue to grow our local talent pipeline by partnering with Campus Greensboro. We plan to hire a Software Developer intern. Our team also plans to mentor students interested in careers in technology. Our hope is to equip local students with the skills and tools to thrive in Greensboro or wherever their careers may take them!
