So @tony & I were chatting today about internships – less the “open source project” style internships and more about the more “traditional” students working for a company in exchange for money kind of internships.
Tony mentioned MECOP – https://www.mecopinc.org/ – as one example of an org that works with companies to place top-tier students in two 6-month internships during their undergrad studies. I know there are others out there as well.
So, that got me thinking about two questions:
- What other programs do we know about that we might want to consider working with?
- Can we develop some basic written material about what type of student profile(s) we might want to work with us? (That we could re-use or at least fork for these various programs?)
Let’s discuss here. (And a reminder, this isn’t really about programs like GSoC, GCI, Outreachy, etc., but rather in closer partnership with universities & their students.)
