An internship is a springboard for your future. Not just in terms of a name on your resume and a few experiences gathered. It can define your outlook on what you look for in a job, your career, and success as a whole. Internships also serve a very important purpose: they bring energy, new ideas, and a fresh approach to the businesses that host them.
This year, we’ve seen many businesses decide that, given what the global situation is, they will cancel their internship programs for the 2020 summer. When our teams first read the initial announcements, they knew that would be unacceptable for the business. Instead, the university recruiting team pivoted to how they could continue to offer a high caliber experience.
So, for the 2020 summer, we at RingCentral are not going to pause the future and hold back on the potential for great things for our teams and the interns who we will be working with. Instead, I’m proud to announce that, much like our offices have shifted to operate while working remotely, we will be shifting to a fully remote and virtual internship program.
This year’s program highlights include:
We hope that this experience will be a great lesson for incoming interns. In your career you adapt, pivot, change direction – but you don’t give up. We couldn’t be more excited for the coming summer with our amazing interns.
