Find Skilled Interns Through Tech Triangle Intern Program

Hey DUMBO, are you looking for highly skilled interns for the new year? The Spring 2014 Brooklyn Tech Triangle Internship Program has arrived! Could you use a motivated Web Programming, Design, or Engineering Intern for the Spring to help grow your business? Now is the time to submit for the Brooklyn Tech Triangle Internship Program (BTTIP)!

  • Launched in June 2013, and sponsored by NYC Small Business Services and the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, the BTTIP was created to address the growing Brooklyn tech sector’s need for talented web programmers, designers, and engineers.
  • Interns are skilled local college students, provided to your business at No Cost to you. The program pays the Interns $15/hour.
  • This past summer, 28 New York City College of Technology (City Tech) college students interned at 19 different technology and advanced manufacturing organizations throughout the Brooklyn Tech Triangle (6 in DUMBO, including Situ Fabrication and BLDG BLOK).

Here’s some coverage of the 2013 summer pilot program, which was seen as a great success. 85% of employers wanted to retain their summer interns or bring on new BTTIP interns for future opportunities. 90% of interns were interested in future BTTIP internship opportunities

If you are interested in participating in this program, please complete the brief Questionnaire and return to Toryl Hanna at thanna(at)brooklynnavyyard(dot)org as soon as possible.

There are only a limited number of slots available, so don’t miss this fabulous opportunity!
