Internships

The Michigan Council of Women in Technology Foundation (MCWT) is pleased to announce the Early College Internship Program for the Summer of 2018.  MCWT will match candidates with available intern positions at MCWT partner companies to determine mutually beneficial placements. Internship positions will be for undergraduate-level college women who are enrolled full time in college-level courses for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 academic years at a Michigan university.

Intern Candidates:

To express your interest in being considered for an Internship, please send an email with your resume to MCWTintern@mcwt.org.  There will be a rolling acceptance process that is initiated upon receipt of the candidates resume.  You are encouraged to send this in as soon as possible. 

Eligibility:

An applicant must be a female undergraduate level college student who is: 

  • A resident of the state of Michigan
  • A student with a 3.0 GPA or better
  • Enrolled in a Michigan university
  • Enrolled in an Information Technology program*

MCWT Partner Companies / Prospective Intern Employers:

This program is for first- or second-year college students pursuing computer science or an equivalent as a major with a GPA of 3.0 or better. Some qualifications include having a general knowledge of standard office applications (e.g. PowerPoint, Excel, project) and an understanding of basic IT skills (e.g. coding, data, hardware/software, process). Interns will gain experience in new technologies, work in professional teams and improve communication skills. It will be a great opportunity to become a part of the Michigan Council of Women in Technology Foundation.

Additionally, partner companies from the MCWT community who specialize in IT staffing are also available as part of this intern program for onboarding and hiring of the intern, if you would prefer to work through one of these firms.

 

We encourage you to share your company profile; number of intern openings and intern job descriptions for this program; suggested start and end dates; and key contact information. Candidates will be selected by an intern selection committee and robust application process with MCWT scholars given first priority for placement. We will be conducting rolling reviews to match candidates to available intern positions and will invite you to participate in the matching/approval process.  The intern program will run in the June to September 2017 timeframe for a minimum 6 weeks with possible extension options. If you are interested in this program or if you have any questions, please contact MCWTintern@mcwt.org
