Summer of Tech has been around for 13 years, and each summer we place hundreds of students in paid summertime internships. There is a lot of affection for our brand among interns past and present because we’ve helped them get their first “real” job.
2018 team celebrating 200+ intern placements in 6 hours!
The programme is a pretty easy sell to employers too, not only is there something really fulfilling about helping the next generation, they can all vividly remember their first jobs and the people that took a punt on them.
But beyond the warm fuzzies, what difference has Summer of Tech made to NZ Inc?
Earlier this year, with some financial help from Hoku, we did some work to try and answer that question. The detailed report is below, but here are a few select highlights:
350+ employers have been involved in Summer of Tech since 2006
We’ve facilitated 1,111 internships
Over 5,000 students registered with us this year (so far this year we are at just over 2,000)
1,022 people attended bootcamps last year, and on average they attend 4 each
95% of past interns either “strongly agree” or “agree” that the programme was a worthwhile investment
83% of students stay on with their employer after the internship ends
For every intern that is hired, 9 more get professional and technical training
