Program ‘will create a next-generation internship program for Indigenous students that offers a compelling pathway to digital jobs,’ official says
OpenText and Lakehead University announced a new program today that will create internship opportunities for Indigenous students enrolled at the University.
As part of the new partnership between OpenText and Lakehead University, up to 25 full-time summer internships will be created for Indigenous students studying at Lakehead’s Thunder Bay and Orillia campuses through the OpenText Indigenous Internship Program.
The four-month internships will allow students to intern remotely at OpenText in the software engineering, marketing, finance, information technology, and human resources departments, where they will gain valuable soft and technical skills, confidence and knowledge that will better prepare them to enter the workforce.
