Starting in February, P&G is offering a completely virtual, 10-week training program consisting of a mixture of live presenters and online courses. Students will gain experience working in the corporate world, exploring IT professions, and STEM-specific subject training.
"Programs like the new PG Tech Jumpstart Program and PG Tech are important because they help expose young students to careers in STEM fields that they might not otherwise pursue. This opens their eyes to the possibilities that careers in STEM can provide. At the same time, companies like P&G get the benefit of working with diverse, young talent who bring unique perspective." -Melissa HinsonFeehan, P&G IT Director
The program begins in February and continues through April. Selected students will meet P&G STEM Professionals who teach them valuable skills to help with schoolwork and future education/employment choices. At the end of the ten weeks, students will have the opportunity to show us what they have learned with the chance to continue to our full-time 10-week summer program, where they will work on real-life STEM projects as part of a team.
At the end of the ten weeks, students will have the opportunity to utilize their new skills by continuing to a full-time 10-week INTERalliance Summer Internship where they will work on real-life STEM projects as part of a team.
