Interesting IT internships for students.
Internships organized for students are an opportunity for companies to already at the university to catch the most talented people who will feed the team of employees in the future. This is particularly convenient in the IT industry, where it is becoming increasingly difficult to get people with the right skills.
According to the latest report of Computerworld magazine, 73% of IT companies invite interns. Last year, 81% of these young people became employees of companies where they gained experience in the form of internships. It is worth noting that in the IT industry, internships are generally paid and are often considered as a prelude to permanent employment. Traineeships are a popular form of talent acquisition in the IT industry, especially during the holiday season, when many full-time employees are on leave and need to be replaced in some way. Of course, this is more about support in the performance of tasks and gaining experience, which can end not only in increasing the competence of the student, but also in his employment. We mentioned holidays, but this does not mean that during the academic year there is no chance of an internship. We checked that such a possibility exists. Here are some interesting internships offered by IT companies right now:
