Major U.S. tech companies, including Apple, are scrambling to work out digital options for this year’s summer intern class, as businesses remain shuttered due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
At Apple, interns are an important part of the team. Whether you sign on for a summer internship or a co-op during the academic year, you can work on critical projects on an Apple campus. As part of the Apple community, you’ll get an insider’s perspective on the way Apple works and the people who lead the compmay. To be eligible for Apple’s student programs, you must be enrolled in a college, university, or graduate program. See available Apple internships here.
Internships serve as key learning opportunities for students, but are also critical for the recruiting and diversity efforts of the Big Tech companies who compete fiercely for college talent.
Apple, which told Axios it plans to hire more than 1,000 people for a mix of online and in-person internships and pledged in a statement to “extend to our interns the same precautions and care that we’re extending to all our other personnel as a part of the ongoing COVID-19 response.”
MacDailyNews Take: Let’s face it, a virtual internship cannot take the place of actually being there, as any of our beloved former keg-tapping interns will readily attest. A virtual beer is far less satisfying than an actual beer. Hopefully, we can be back to safely mingling in-person ASAP!
