Technology & Data

While positions can open at any time, it is often very helpful to start your internship or job search in computing/computer science and technology early. Employers, especially the larger more competitive organizations, usually start their recruiting process in the late summer and early fall. Whether you’d like a summer internship or start a full time job in June, you will want to start your search in the late summer or early fall before. Some employers will make offers to successful interns before they even finish their internship. If you’re starting late, don’t be discouraged as not all employers start their search this early, but to benefit from all the position job/internship postings, you want to start early if you can.
