Google aspires to be an organization that reflects the globally diverse audience that our search engine and tools serve. We believe that in addition to hiring the best talent, a diversity of perspectives, ideas and cultures leads to the creation of better products and services. This diversity of our employees and partners serves as the foundation for us to better serve our diverse customers and stakeholders all over the world. Google is also invested in increasing the pipeline of future computer scientists and software developers, particularly those who are historically underrepresented in the field. Many aspiring computer scientists could benefit from a program that bridges the gap between academic study and a professional internship. Google wants to inspire these students to continue in the field with such a program.
With this in mind, Google announces the launch of the Engineering Trainee Summer Program in Europe. Students who have completed the first year of their university studies by summer of 2012 and are studying computer science or related subjects will be selected to participate in the program. This program includes three main components: a software project, skills-based training, and professional development. We will have Engineering Trainee cohorts in three offices this year: London, Munich and Krakow.
We invite you to join us for the 2012 Engineering Trainee Summer Program!
This summer trainee program includes:
- Software Project: A 10-week development project that you will work on in a team of Googlers and other Engineering Trainee interns.
- Skills-Based Training: Enhance your coding skills; get exposed to new tools and programming languages.
- Professional Development: Attend weekly technical talks by senior Googlers. Additionally, learn how to enhance your resume, tackle technical interviews, and improve your presentation skills.
- Mentorship: Be matched with a Google engineer, other than your manager, to guide you through your summer experience.
- Fun: Social activities, community building and networking. Build a relationship with your peers.
- Exposure: A unique glimpse into applying your computer science studies in a professional environment.
