As a thank you for following my blog, I’d like to introduce you to what I think is a great opportunity for the right students. My team is looking for two bright students for a 16 month, full-time internship opportunity with IBM.
Aside from being a bright and ambitious student, you should currently be working towards a Computer Science degree at any recognized University in the world (and have completed at least 2 years of your degree). You read that right, this opportunity is not limited to Canadian students. We are looking for the most talented students in the world, so as long as you’re ready to relocate to Toronto for 16 months, and are able to start the internship program in May 2010, we have the means to get you here. The location for this internship will be the Toronto Software Lab, in Markham, Ontario.
In particular, we are looking for students who are highly skilled in the area of web technologies and who are enthusiastic about cloud computing. This is NOT your run-of-the-mill, boring student job. You’ll be working with cutting edge technology on high visibility, fast paced projects that involve web technologies, cloud computing, Xp/Agile methodologies, and other related fields. You’ll be granted ample freedom to express yourself and your programming creativity. Should you be accepted for this well paid (in my opinion) internship program, you will report directly to my manager (a cool, down to earth guy) and I’ll be your mentor.
If you fit the criteria described above, please get in touch (cangiano at ca dot ibm dot com) and tell me a bit about yourself. You don’t need to attach your résumé at this stage, but if you drop me a line, I’ll be able to provide you with info on how to apply through the official IBM channels. We’ll take it from there.
Please note that I do NOT receive any form of compensation for referring you. I’m just hoping to provide a tiny subset of my readership with what could be a really great opportunity.
