Annual Summer Internship Begins

The internship program at Varen Technologies is a summer long program that focuses on front end and back end software development for college students pursuing computer science as career. The program has been active for three years now with a growing number of participating interns each year. Each year the interns complete tasks and projects while working as a team to accomplish common goals. Projects are assigned based on the needs of the company and/or building experience working with different tools. Learning sessions and discussions are also offered by current employees to educate what it takes to work in the industry including the ability to present and public speaking. Interns must be in an accredited college or university to apply. This is a paid internship on an hourly rate.

Through the internship program, Varen also uses this opportunity to recruit young talent to join the company. After completing the internship for consecutive years, interns can be offered the opportunity to start the process for clearances and work on a contract for the company. This is an excellent opportunity for students looking for possible job security and acquisition post-college.

This year the program has five participating interns: 3 developers, 1 project manager, and 1 in human resources and public relations. Projects completed include active use of various tools and programs.
