About the girledworld Internship Program
Girledworld Summer Internships are for 15-18-Year old girls interested in diving into a fast-paced, startup team environment in January 2019.
Our girledworld internship program is designed to allow opportunities for students to immerse in real-world work environments, learn new skills and to enable disadvantaged or underrepresented students access to exciting future career opportunities in the industry. Students from all schools, and students who identify with a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology or startup industry, are encouraged to apply.
The program of work will enable interns to engage in high-impact education product design, marketing and data analytics, content creation and girledworld programming elements while also building meaningful relationships with other girledworld interns and team through a variety of workplace activities. We love co-design so interns will also have a chance to unleash their ideas on our teams, too!
Applications: November 26 – December 14, 2018 at 11:59pm.
Interviews: Successful applicants will be contacted and interviews will be conducted in December 2018.
Internship: Commencing January 14, 2019. (Dates and total hours are flexible via negotiation and pending applicant suitability, skillset and desired program of work).
