vermont technology council
The Vermont Technology Council is committed to
helping connect in-state businesses with
motivated, capable students, to the benefit of
both. Businesses provide the opportunities;
students provide the talent; and the Technology
Council brings the two together.
This year's internship program is just now
ramping up. Please check back regularly to
explore all of the new job postings.
Businesses throughout the state recognize the
value of a qualified workforce -- now and in
the pipeline for the future. College students,
meanwhile, need on-site work experience, where
they can apply their knowledge and find a path
that will encourage them to live and work in
Vermont after graduation.
The Vermont Technology Council Internship
Program is straightforward:
- Businesses provide paid summer internship
opportunities for college students. As with any
job, students are expected to give real value
to the business.
- Businesses write up the position
description by completing the easy online
- Each opening is widely marketed to
prospective applicants -- students attending
colleges both within and outside of Vermont.
This is achieved through: direct distribution
of each opening to institutions; postings on
the Council's website; and contact with
- Students apply for positions by submitting
their application materials directly to the
host business as instructed in each internship
- The business is under no obligation to
hire; if a good candidate does not emerge or
there are changed circumstances, the business
can simply not extend an offer.
The Vermont Technology Council wants Vermont to
become known as a place where internships are
abundant. Students know that internships build
resumes and lead to jobs, with the host company
or another. Join the Council in building this
important initiative - and in the process,
develop your own talent pipeline.
You need real work experience to make wise
career decisions - and to compete for jobs
when you graduate.
The Vermont Technology Council thanks
numerous business organizations for their
assistance in this initiative, including:
Vermont Software Developer's Alliance;
Vermont Biosciences Alliance; Vermont
Manufacturing Extension Center; Vermont
Business Roundtable; Lake Champlain
Regional Chamber of Commerce; Vermont
Chamber of Commerce; and the twelve
Regional Development Corporations. This
program is funded in part by a Vermont
Department of Labor Next Generation
Internship Grant. Ultimately, it is through
the participation of businesses like yours
that Vermont will be successful in fully
meeting its workforce needs.
