In an effort to provide meaning learning opportunities for college students, fusionSpan has again brought on a pair of summer interns. This is the fifth consecutive summer fusionSpan has had paid interns. The fusionSpan internship program has been a great way for fusionSpan founder’s to give back to their alma mater, the University of Maryland, and has also been a great resource as several past interns have since joined fusionSpan as full time staff. As part of their internship, interns will get exposed to a variety of business and software development projects with opportunities to work hands on with staff on active projects. Interns also have helped fusionSpan by building out more robust internal systems.
“As a student, I always found opportunities for hands-on experience to be the best learning environment,” said Gayathri Kher, President of fusionSpan. “Being able to provide those learning opportunities for students is an important way I want to make sure fusionSpan is giving back.”
