It’s early March, but most of our local colleges and universities are already back from spring break. This means that internship season will soon be upon us!
You might be surprised to learn that Greensboro, North Carolina, is home to 50,000+ local college students. Though not all of them live here during the summers, a good chunk do, and that’s where Campus Greensboro comes in.
Among other things, the organization runs the Campus Greensboro Fellows Program: “A competitive, 10-week summer program that includes a paid industry internship and opportunities to build your network, enhance your professional development, engage in the community, and explore Greensboro as a place to thrive as a young professional.”
At a time when most software development is done off-shore, HaystackCRM is developed entirely within the walls of its Fisher Park (North Carolina) office. Our developers are graduates of UNCG, AT&T, and other local institutions. We are proving that tech can thrive outside of San Francisco, or even the Research Triangle.
That’s why we are excited to continue to grow our local talent pipeline by partnering with Campus Greensboro. We plan to hire a Software Developer intern and a Creative Services intern. Our hope is to equip local students with the skills and tools to thrive in Greensboro and beyond! Of course, our preference is for the thriving to occur in Greensboro 🙂
In the coming weeks, we look forward to sharing more about our homegrown team.
