"It has been only three weeks and I can say I have already learned more than I had in a full year (25 sessions) of SIR last year with less than 10% of the stress." --William, Senior (class of 2015, Tweetsense co-founder)
INTERNSHIP Orientation, Monday, August 28, 8-9pm, IN2
INTERNSHIP APPLICATION (IMSA Students)
On I-Days, TALENT Interns work with digital and technology start ups as programmers, researchers, social media strategists and more. Most internships are located at 1871 in Chicago's Merchandise Mart and at IN2, IMSA's new innovation hub. These opportunities afford students unparalleled experience learning about start ups in ways that are impossible in classrooms. Embedded in start up teams, students gain knowledge and skills as true team members. A typical internship meets for a minimum of 15 sessions; some take place over summer vacation. Among the companies served thus far are Spantree, Whittl, Youtopia, Selfie, Techstars, Jimi Allen Productions, Mad Labs, Tweetsense, Omnipointment, Adsensa and Honorary Chicago. Companies may request interns--but demand is greater than supply now that the quality of our students' work is becoming known.
