Tech Juncture (Oct 2021)

Opportunity to showcase your technical skills for an internship!

Tech Juncture will showcase high school juniors presenting projects to employers for an internship and tech certificate opportunity under the Indiana DWD SEAL program. A tech project will be assigned to students after they complete a session at Code Week. They will be given 8-12 weeks to work on the project and submit it to the employers. We will assign a mentor to every student to offer assistance. The students will present their projects to employers at the Tech Juncture event. The employers will select students for a job interview based on their performance in the project and presentation. In case the internships are not available, the students with the best projects and presentations will receive a cash prize.
