Internship initiative in Europe. Through a competitive selection process, Microsoft is offering 10 internships to European IT students or recent graduates for a 2 month period (July-August 2011) with 10 major non-profit, charitable organizations around Europe!
Microsoft is looking to engage the energy and passion of IT students/ graduates fresh out of college through a unique opportunity to do something good. This is the chance for students to apply their technology skills and creativity working in a non-profit environment and above all to learn about the critical role of technology in optimizing day to day operations to serve the most vulnerable in society. These internships are intended to help NGOs working on globally significant problems to manage their work better with successful and strategic use of IT.
Candidates will also be asked to consider reality based scenarios for non-profit organizations and provide recommendations. This internship program is open to IT students or recent graduates in Europe during this initial pilot year.
