Microsoft has announced its summer 2012 internship program for high school students. We had several Garfield Students have great experiences as Microsoft interns most recently Grant Bronsdon, Emma Meersman, and Jenny Lin (you can see more details about their experience in our Beyond the Classroom page).
“Here at Microsoft, high school students just like you will work on cutting-edge technology that will make a real difference in people’s lives all over the world. As an intern, your insider’s look into high-tech professions may give you a little inspiration as you make plans for college. It’ll also give you a head start on building a good resume. You’ll receive a competitive hourly wage plus a bus pass and software discounts. Sure beats scooping ice cream.”
It’s a great opportunity for current junior or senior students. You work on actual projects and get paid, not just hang around and do busy work.
More info can be found here: Microsoft Summer Internship. You’ll need a resume, transcripts, and a recommendation from one of your teachers. And make sure to let Mr Bergquist know that you are applying. The deadline to apply is March 9, 2012, so don’t wait until the last minute!
