Three years ago we launched our Code Cadet campaign offering summer internships to university students, as well as offering them full-time positions upon successful completion of their internships and graduation from university. The reasons for the success of this campaign are threefold.
- It gives students the ability to link academia to industry by putting into practice what they’ve learned.
- Benefits us by hiring talent early on.
- Provides the opportunity for team members to mentor the newbies.
“Two years ago I was given the opportunity to intern at CCBill whilst pursuing my Master’s degree in Computer Science. Given that I had just completed my third and final year of the bachelor’s degree, this internship allowed me to get accustomed to working in the industry whilst furthering my studies at University. During this time I was exposed to new and exciting technologies where I was assigned on projects used internally by the company. This experience as an intern was pleasant, where I met fun to work with colleges who were happy to mentor me during my work. Two years on, having completed my studies and engaged on a full time bases with the company, I am grateful for this experience which has served as a superb induction to my full time post.”
