Students from all disciplines work together in teams to support existing Boise startups and businesses.
HOW IT WORKS
Unlike traditional internships where students are often isolated in a cubicle, Venture College has created internship teams that work together at our downtown campus. Students teams will receive various projects from startups and businesses across Boise.
BUILD YOUR RESUME: Students are given the opportunity to gain unique resume experience employers are looking for by working with multiple local Boise businesses.
Did you know, “research from Gallup revealed that the majority of U.S. business leaders say the amount of knowledge a candidate has in a field, as well as applied skills, are more important factors when making a hire than where a candidate attended school or what their college major was.” – businessnewsdaily.com
EARN PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATIONS: In addition to work experience, student interns can earn professional certifications to add to their resume and LinkedIn profiles, which leads to higher paying jobs after college.
According to EdX, professional certifications “provide learners with a more immediate path to reskill or upskill quickly in order to advance their career or position themselves for a new job.”
HAVE A FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE & WORK WITH FRIENDS: We provide our interns with the flexibility to work around their school schedule while being able to work with their peers (from all different majors) in a team setting.
“I loved working with a team of interns at Venture College. We had a lot of fun but also pushed each other to make sure we were completing tasks on time for our clients.” Chase Carpenter, Intern
