The TAG-Ed Summer Internship Program was created to give competitive students real world STEM experience with companies in metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia.
The internship Program is a 5 week experience where students work to develop their professional aptitude while building their technical abilities. By working on relevant projects, students leave the program with tangible work experience, invaluable connections, and a passion to pursue a career in the STEM field. TAG-Ed remains committed to recruiting top talent as this program continues to be one of the most selective and highly competitive summer opportunities. Interested students are advised to take time to preview the application before submitting to ensure they are putting time and effort into their application. We also offer a Career Readiness Series to teach students soft skills and enhance their professional image. Because we believe in the value of this information, attending one of these workshops represents a BADGE for participating in TAG-Ed's High School Internship Program.
I believe this experience was a great opportunity that would have been hard to obtain through my efforts alone. I sincerely believe the TAG-Ed program is particularly rewarding because of how great and responsive the coordinators are to the students' needs and expectations!
TAG-Ed is an excellent program, beginning with the workshops all the way to the placement of your internship. I would recommend this program for anyone because it prepares you for interviews, job opportunities and any type of professional development you would need.
The internships will surely help open your eyes about the fields you want to pursue. Such an amazing overall experience.
More than anything, this internship was an eye-opening experience for me to see and understand how tech companies work. With this knowledge, I now know what it takes to be a leader in the workplace, and I am more motivated to learn and do well in school.
