This event will be a one-week long program to give participants interested in entering the technology sector an inside look at what it’s like to work in the industry.
The technology sector is rather broad, so the participant will spend each day of their week at a different company, shadowing mentor’s in different positions. At each workplace, participant(s) would have a mentor to show them around their place of work and what they do on a day to day basis.
Switching to a different workplace every day will keep participants on their feet and learning new things, while giving them more time to reflect and evaluate their experiences. Through this program, it is hoped that the participants will learn more about what its like to work in their area of interest while expanding their network in the field.
