How to Find an Internship You’ll Value

Many college students and recent graduates work as interns. That means they take a temporary job to get hands-on experience, usually in a field they’re interested in. College graduates sometimes use internships to start a career. But did you know that you can get a summer or after-school internship while you’re still in high school?

An internship can show you what the working world is like.

Why Intern?

Some internship involves pay, and others are unpaid. But internships offer many benefits besides money. For example, taking an internship can:

  • Show you what the working world is like
  • Teach you important skills, such as time management and computer skills
  • Help you choose a major
  • Inspire a career choice
  • Connect you with experienced people who can mentor you

How to Get Started

By putting some thought into your search and using the resources that are available to you, you can find an internship that will offer you great opportunities.

Think About Your Goals

To begin the process of finding the right internship for you, think about fields you want to explore or skills you want to learn. Do you love Latest Technology BigData Hadoop? Do you want to know what scientific research is like or what a Cloud Computing does all day? Do you want to learn how to build a website?

Having clear goals in mind makes it more likely that you’ll find an internship you can get excited about.

Use the Internet

Once you have goals in mind, you can begin looking for an internship online. Start by searching for local businesses and organizations in your areas of interest and see if they offer internship programs. You can also check out these resources:

Take Advantage of Other Resources

Using personal contacts and local resources are also great ways to find an internship. Try these methods for finding opportunities:

  • Ask your high school counselor and teachers for help.
  • Check with your coaches and club advisers.
  • Find out if family and friends know someone in a field that interests you.
  • If there’s a specific company or organization you’d like to work for, don’t be afraid to contact someone there.
  • Look for recent internship guidebooks at the library

The 6 hottest new jobs in IT

When CompTIA conducted an intensive examination of the IT employment market last year, it uncovered demand for jobs whose titles would have been meaningless only a year or two ago: augmented reality designer, Internet of things architect, container developers.

That’s no surprise, given that the IT job market is in constant flux, with new technologies emerging so quickly that hiring managers struggle to define those positions — let alone give them a title. IBM, for example, has a director of blockchains, and Ford Motor is among many companies looking for GPU cluster engineers.

Surely, some emerging fields will falter. Others, however, will grow to become the next big thing. When InfoWorld looked at emerging jobs in 2011, No. 2 on the list was data scientist. Now a quick search on, a large tech-focused job board, returns screen after screen of hits; it’s in the mainstream. This trend toward extracting business value from large data sets has spawned demand for new skills and spun off emerging areas of opportunities for IT pros willing to learn those skills.

At the same time, traditional IT jobs are morphing, requiring new abilities, says Tim Herbert, senior vice president and researcher at CompTIA. Network admins, for example, must learn cloud skills, and security specialists are using machine learning to defend their networks.

Among the technologies that could fuel a new IT career revolution are IBM’s Watson and similar cognitive computing initiatives. Advances in hardware are also making demands for skills that aren’t yet being met. Experian, the giant credit reporting agency, is using GPU clusters to sift through its vast data stores, but finding engineers and developers who can write the code to make it work is difficult. “Someone whose resume indicates they understand GPUs will rise to the top immediately,” says Eric Haller, executive vice president at Experian DataLabs.

Haller’s point reflects the growth of what CEO Bob Melk calls “the skills gap.” Technologies are moving faster than the expertise needed to exploit them can be disseminated to the workforce. That’s a problem for companies looking for employees to help exploit breakthroughs, but a boon for IT professionals who can fill that gap.

“The problem is digital strategies and transformation have become competitive necessities and not just growth-enablers. There simply isn’t enough talent at the right level of experience in the marketplace right now to satisfy the need. And it will get worse before it gets better,” says David Foote, principal analyst at Foote Partners, which closely studies the IT job market.

In examining the latest changes in the IT job market, we talked with analysts, staffing groups, and executives whose responsibilities include hiring. Here are some of the jobs that we and our sources think will be hot in the not-so-distant future.

IBM’s cognitive computing initiative, best known for Watson, the computer program that became a “Jeopardy” champion, has given birth to the cognitive systems engineer, a title whose responsibilities have yet to be fully defined. Even IBM isn’t exactly sure if “cognitive systems engineer” is a meaningful job title. What is clear, however, is that cognitive systems are becoming a very large part of IBM’s business plan, and an ecosystem of smaller companies is developing around Watson and related technologies, bringing with them a host of new career opportunities.

SparkCognition, for example, is using machine learning, big data analysis, modeling, and other cognitive-related technologies to better understand security threats. WayBlazer is focused on consumer travel, and Point of Care, one of a number of health care-related Watson partners, allows clinicians to access peer-reviewed content on specific diseases on a mobile platform.

The demand for cognitive computing skills is gaining enough steam that institutions of higher education are paying attention. IBM is helping hundreds of universities develop cognitive-related course materials, says Jim Spohrer, director of IBM’s university programs. The skills needed to succeed in cognitive computing go beyond the obvious knowledge key to any big-data-related specialty. “Data curation is a key part; you don’t build a cognitive system without thinking of a body of documents or websites,” he says.


A job listing with IBM Watson Health group, for example, says this about what’s needed to land it: “Candidates should be hands-on in their approach to technology. This includes unstructured data, statistical extraction of entities, machine learning, natural language processing, and search.”

You won’t find a lot of job openings with this title yet. But startups are recruiting engineers and developers who are familiar with the technologies behind bitcoin and have deep experience in cryptography, distributed systems, hash algorithms, and more.

Bitcoin’s core technology, the blockchain, is proving the most intriguing to could-be employers. More than 200 companies and open source projects are seeking to apply blockchain technology to applications such as trading platforms, secure identification cards, self-executing contracts, and many applications in financial services.

Peter Kirby, CEO of Factom, a startup working to monetize the technology developed by, an open source project, says it’s easier to get eight-figure infusions of capital from VCs than it is to find qualified blockchain engineers. “It begins with understanding how decentralized architecture works and the intersection of software architect and cryptography expert,” he says.

The technology is not that difficult to comprehend, he says, but it is new and in some ways more like advanced math than programming.

Interested? Check out this job posted on by CyberCoders, an IT recruiting company promising a salary of $150,000 to $170,000 for an engineer with experience in Python, bitcoins, and distributed systems.

GPU cluster engineer

GPU computing improves application performance by offloading compute-intensive portions of the application to the GPU, while the remainder of the code still runs on the CPU. That advantage is key to companies like Facebook, China’s Baidu, and Experian that deal with enormous data sets.

Facebook’s Big Sur runs the social networking company’s machine learning servers and is heavily reliant on GPU clusters, which can be more efficient than conventional CPUs for machine learning and other tasks. Facebook CTO Mike Schroepfer says the GPU-based system is twice as fast as conventional solutions.

Experian, with its massive data stores, also uses GPU clusters, but because it is a new technology, finding engineers with GPU experience is difficult, says Experian’s Haller. “Provisioning clusters is one thing, but writing code to run on it is another. You can download software that does it, but that’s inefficient,” he says.

In something of a new technology twofer, Ford Motor is looking for GPU engineers to work on its driverless car program. The list of necessary skills and duties fills an entire computer screen, and the minimum skills needed include: “1+ years [experience with] GPU, parallel programming tools and language extensions etc.,” as well as a broad array of programming skills, among them C/C++, Perl, Python, Java, OpenGL, OpenCV, CUDA, MATLAB, and more.

You can learn about recent developments in GPU computing by visiting the GPU Computing News group on Facebook.

Virtual reality engineer

Virtual reality is no longer the sole province of game makers. That means someone with the right experience and skills can write a ticket to places as diverse as The New York Times, one of the first newspapers to begin using VR (and Google Cardboard) as a storytelling tool, or startups such as Lucid VR, a developer of 3D cameras.

Here’s a list of skills Lucid says you’ll need: Objective-C, C++, Computer Vision, C, computer graphics, mobile application development, OpenGL ES, C#, OpenGL, DirectX, WebGL, and digital image processing. There are more VR-related jobs posted on AngelList and you’ll find postings for a few VR engineers by CyberCoders, a staffing agency in Seattle.

Don’t overlook established companies working on mobile if you’re interested in VR. Samsung, for example, recently announced two new phones, but what drew more attention at the Mobile World Congress was its Gear 360, a camera for recording virtual reality videos for its Gear VR headset.

Although investment banks frequently overhype new technologies, it’s worth noting that Goldman Sachs predicts that virtual reality will generate $110 billion compared to television’s $99 billion in 10 years. Even if that estimate is too bullish, it is clear that serious money is pursuing virtual reality technology and there will be opportunities for skilled IT workers to exploit.

Internet of things architect

One billion, 2 billion, who knows how many billions of devices will be connected to the red-hot Internet of things? Even if those estimates are wildly overstated, the IoT is top of mind for many innovative companies — and not only startups.

Verizon, for instance, recently advertised for what it calls an “IoT solutions architect.” Among other skills, the applicant should have experience in “managing delivery of complex solutions involving IoT, M2M [machine to machine], cloud, security, professional services, and SaaS,” in addition to “strong technology marketing and analytical skills.”

It’s worth noting that Verizon wants its architect to have nontechnical business skills as well: “Must possess financial management skills needed for forecasting, pricing, and margin analysis. Professional presentation and [communication] skills to address all levels of the enterprise to include client senior executives.”

That requirement tracks with an important trend: Information technology departments are becoming less of a service organization and more of a line of business that can add revenue and business opportunities to the entire enterprise, says analyst David Foote.

Computer security incident responder

Cyber security specialist has long been on the hot jobs list, so what’s new about a job that Amir Husain, founder and CEO of SparkCognition, calls “security incident response professional”? “He is the guy who can deal with the effects of an attack or an exploit, and he needs a broad understanding of security information and event management (SIEM),” says Husain.

SIEM combines a number of functions into a single system and centralizes event logs and other security-related documentation for analysis. The information resides within the SIEM, but leveraging it means knowing what questions to ask, and few people have that skill, says Husain.

Foote, agrees, saying “without a doubt, a cyber security skills gap has developed on a global basis.” The increasingly sophisticated nature of cyber attacks and the ability to use new technologies such as machine learning algorithms to analyze, understand, and counter those threats has fundamentally changed the nature of the job, which now requires the ability to cull evidence from a wide range of sources, not SIEM alone.

A job that’s close to the one Husain describes was posted recently by JPMorgan Chase. Among other responsibilities, the person who lands that position will “analyze alerts from various sources within the enterprise and determine possible causes of such alerts, provide timely detection, identification, and distinguish these incidents and events from benign activities and identify false positives.”

Skills you’ll need in order to be considered include a knowledge of networking fundamentals (all OSI layers), protocols and packet analysis, encryption and tokenization technologies, and experience writing PL/SQL or SQL scripts.

Since this job is built on a foundation of conventional skills, you’ll also need information security certifications such as CISSP, SANS, CEH, or related certifications

6 things to leave off of your resume

Things to leave off of your resume

Your resume is the story of your life at work, but it shouldn’t be a blow-by-blow description of your entire history — save that for your autobiography. Making sure the most relevant details and experience aren’t drowned out by extraneous details is key to grabbing and holding a recruiter or hiring manager’s attention.

“Don’t give [hiring managers and recruiters] a reason — any reason — not to hire you. They will automatically make assumptions about you based on your name, your age, your sex, and there’s not much you can do about that. But don’t make it that much harder on yourself by including stuff they really don’t care about,” says Rick Gillis, career consultant, job search expert, and author of Promote! Here, some of’s resume experts offer additional advice on what not to include.

Your picture

Sure, employers are legally obligated to avoid discrimination in hiring — that means they can’t refuse to hire you based on your age, sex, race, gender identity, marital or disability status, among others. But unconscious bias is real, and even the most well-intentioned hiring managers can fall victim to it. Don’t include a picture with your résumé and risk triggering an unconscious bias from a hiring manager. If they want to know what you look like after reading about your killer technical skills and winning personality, they’ll check social media.

Your age

As we’ve stated before, avoid giving hiring managers and recruiters any reason to reject your resume, and that includes your age, or any factors that could point to your age. While you want to include your educational history, degrees, and any particularly relevant courses, projects, or certifications, it’s best to avoid putting graduation dates alongside these.

Age, of course, shouldn’t act as a deterrent in a job search, though in many cases ageism, especially in the startup culture that is IT, happens. Make sure you’re focusing on what your years of experience can bring to the table, and make sure you’re up-to-date on the latest and greatest technology, trends, and skills, says Gillis.

“It’s about being able to demonstrate your accomplishments. Most IT firms want to know one of two things: Can you make them money or can you save them money? Then they’ll want to hire you, regardless of your age,” Gillis says.

An ‘Objective’

There are two major problems with objective statements on a resume: The first is that they’re inane, and the second is that they take up some of the most valuable real estate while saying nothing of value. Say you’re trying to hire a skilled, talented, and seasoned software developer. If you read a candidate’s resume and it says, “Rockstar software engineer looking for a rewarding, fulfilling growth opportunity,” your first thought isn’t, “This is the one!”

Instead of a vapid objective statement, use this valuable space to articulate your brand and customize the statement to the job you’re applying for, says Michelle Jospeh, CEO of PeopleFoundry, in her blog. “By speaking only in generalities, you’re not adding any substance to the resume,” Joseph writes. She adds that many of today’s job seekers just eliminate the objective statement altogether. But if the resume feels naked without it, a sentence or two explaining why you’ll be perfect for the position you’re applying for will suffice.


This is another waste of space, and it’s best left out of any modern resume. Besides, many hiring managers and recruiters will search your profile on LinkedIn and read your social media endorsements and recommendations for themselves. “If they want references, they will request them; there is no need for you to waste space saying, ‘References available upon request,’ either,” Joseph says.

Work experience more than 10 years old

Your resume should include only the last 10 years of work history, the experts agree. Experience from more than a decade ago is no longer pertinent information for an application, as much will have changed since that time, Joseph writes. Unless a job was deliberately short-term — like an internship, a contract position, or a job in event planning, then it should be left off the page as well, she adds. And every job listed should have some relevance to the posting you’re applying for, the experts agree. “If you worked at a grocery store for three months 22 years ago, you don’t need to include that information

Obsolete technology

Finally, while you want to include your technical skills, platforms, systems, solutions, and languages, make sure you’re not including technology that’s far out of date, no longer in widespread use, or that’s straight-up obsolete — unless it’s a specific requirement for the job. If the position requires mainframe skills and you have those, by all means include that. But if not, remove skills that aren’t currently relevant.

“A great example is Windows 10. Now, that release is pretty recent, so no one’s going to be an expert quite yet. But if you’re using it now, put that on your resume and remove all previous versions — hiring managers and recruiters understand that you probably know Windows XP, 7, 8, and the like. Leaving those on there makes you look dated and out-of-touch,” says Stephen Zafarino, technical recruiting manager at recruiting, staffing
