Working as an intern at a startup is the fast track to an awesome job, because an internship with a superb recommendation puts you ahead of everyone else," said David Thielen, founder and CEO of Windward
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
Windward, sponsor of the International Collegiate Programming Championships, has announced it is launching a new school-year internship program. The goal of the program is to help talented software engineers get a head start when applying for the summer internships that propel students into lucrative software engineering jobs.
"Working as an intern at a startup is the fast track to an awesome job, because an internship with a superb recommendation puts you ahead of everyone else," said David Thielen, founder and CEO of Windward. "And the best way for a student to get that great summer internship is to get an internship during the year in the city where they are going to school."
The Windward program provides a range of opportunities for computer science students who intern for the reporting, document generation and business intelligence software leader. Interns will learn new technology, frameworks and software; gain a greater understanding of other departments such as marketing and sales; challenge themselves by branching out into tasks that are unfamiliar; and gain a sense of whether the startup world is right for them.
"Start-ups need people who are smart, can create amazing things, and are incredibly productive," Thielen adds. "A local school-year internship with a company such as Windward can help show you if you belong at a startup."
