Evolytics is excited to share news of the launch of our structured internship program.
Over the years, we have hired the occasional intern when the situation was right, but the new program design will truly evolve the internship experience at Evolytics.
The internship has three pillars for aspiring analytics professionals:
- A rotational training that exposes interns to the entire data lifecycle and the proven Evolytics DRIVE process
- A role on a client project alongside established Evolytics team members
- A customized intern project that will allow interns to showcase their leadership abilities and challenge themselves in the area of their interest
Although interns will receive rotational training, they are asked to choose one area of emphasis:
- Data Analysis
- Analytics Code Development
- Data Engineering
- Data Visualization
Evolytics plans to foster development in these areas by assigning client responsibilities and intern projects accordingly, embedding interns into their chosen team and establishing mentoring relationships between interns and thought leaders.
“We were at a university recruiting event, and first-year MBA students kept asking us if we offered summer internships,” President Carey Wilkins said. “Many of them were great applicants, and we didn’t want to miss out on the exceptional talent we were meeting because of where they were in their academic program.”
After that recruiting event, the leadership team decided the best course of action was to create a summer internship program with the goal of seeking out the best talent early and cultivating relationships that would lead to full-time careers.
“We did our research,” Carey said. “It was important to us that our compensation and training be competitive, so we can attract top candidates.”
Evolytics team members are excited about the prospect of the internships becoming long-term careers after students finish their education, and they have planned fun, team-building experiences accordingly.
