Spend a productive summer with Spectrum
You have clear aspirations and are seeking a summer internship program that will help you meet them. Find it at Spectrum, named one of the Top 100 Internship Programs in the United States by WayUp. Our internships are designed to provide first-rate, hands-on experience in the telecommunications industry. We offer opportunities to gain new skills and elevate the ones you already have, all in a robust and forward-thinking business setting. We’ll connect you with people who can give you a better understanding of the industry and help you accomplish real goals you can add to your résumé. The mentorship opportunities and proximity to leadership are benefits with far-reaching potential in your professional education.
It’s about learning and growing
You’re dedicated, and that means your time as much as your effort. This 10-week, 40hr/week internship offers exposure to real-world business. As a Spectrum Intern, you’ll be essential to two teams — your respective department and your Intern peer group. Partner with other accomplished and dedicated interns on research and cross-functional projects. You’ll have an opportunity contribute real value and meaning to the larger organization.
Department and team-focused projects account for about 80% of your schedule. You’ll spend the other 20% on professional development sessions and networking activities, including the Kickoff Conference on May 29 and 30, webinars, community service, and final presentations. As part of a peer community, you’ll contribute to cross-functional group projects, and should be ready to take on new projects as they come up.
What you can expect in this role
The interns’ time will be divided up 50% working on projects with the internal applications team, while the remaining 50% of their time will be spent collaborating with the other interns on our summer beat the best project.
The daily projects for internal applications include Panorama, our internal company communications website used by over 100,000 employees. They will also get to work on other various projects like Quantum, our internal data analytics tool and Distillery, our internal A/B testing platform.
The challenge for beat the best will be announced on the interns first day. Last year the interns were given the problem statement: Save Cable. They were given 9 weeks to focus on an innovation opportunity for Spectrum while incorporating the principles of universal and inclusive design.
Our goal is to educate and empower the next generation of designers to create better experiences and products for ALL people. Our hope is that the knowledge gained as part of this challenge will be spread to their respective academic programs and beyond.
