Cisco Systems Internship and Job Opportunities, posted 12/9/2014

Brad Mannel ’98 of Cisco Systems in Boston recently contacted Tritiy about a summer intern program (juniors eligible) and a full-time entry level position (seniors eligible) for which the company is specifically seeking students from NESCAC schools.  It seems that an executive at Cisco has a son that just started at Bowdoin and his eyes have been opened to the value of employees who have been educated in liberal arts schools.   Between that and our alum’s involvement, our students have an excellent chance at being considered for spots for these opportunities.  Full  job descriptions for each can be found in the following documents: Cisco Field Sales Engineering Summer Intern and Cisco Global Service Systems Engineer - Entry Level position.  Below are summaries and links to our CareerLink site where students can apply. 

The purpose of this program is to expose students to Cisco’s technology and customers while providing hands-on training and group project experience.   Upon completion of the internship, opportunities exist to become Cisco’s next generation of sales leaders through an accelerated early in career development path.

Qualifications:  Pursuing a BS or MS degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science, Information Technology, MIS, Mathematics, Physics, or other equivalent degrees in technical disciplines are required and an emphasis on Software Design practices preferred.

You can jam code but crave broad impact on transformational projects vs. being locked in a scrum bunker. If your passion is innovation but you enjoy partnering with people on profoundly interdisciplinary teams explore Internet scale Cisco opportunities such as:

• Transformation of Sports, Media & Entertainment and the Future of Television

• Hyper-Scale Cloud Data Center, Edge Computing & Distributed FOG Platforms

• Intercloud (Internet of Clouds), Distributed Systems/Information & Services

• Virtualization/Orchestration Platforms for Mobility, Networks & Managed Services

• Internet of Everything, Smart & Connected Cities, and IoX Cloud Platforms

• Data Science, Machine Learning, Network Analytics, Audience Analytics

Qualifications:  Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher or equivalent in your academic program, BS & MS in Computer Science, Computer Engineering & Data Science. We also welcome candidates in interdisciplinary programs such as Computer Science & Business • Emphasis on Software Design practices preferred

FYI, for both positions – “Candidates must already have a work authorization that would permit them to work for Cisco -- i.e., U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, permanent residents, temporary residents (that is, individuals who have gone through the legalization program) refugees and asylees.”

Short Term job opportunity, posted 6/2/2014

Happy summer! I hope all is well. I am working with a Trinity classmate on a small software startup that was established 2 months ago on campus. Now that all of the company legalities are taken care of we are seeking programmers that are proficient in developing both web and mobile applications (Frameworks, client-server relations, all that fun stuff). I would love it if we could get some talent out of the Trinity community, but if not we are willing to work with anyone who can get the job done. Would you know of anyone that may be interested or would be capable of accomplishing a few months of paid work?

If not, do you have any suggestions on how to reach programmers who are currently a part of the workforce? Finding programmers has proven to be far more difficult than I originally anticipated!

Thanks and All the Best,

Jay DiPietro

TFA 2014 Corps & Computer Science Fellows final application, posted 2/14/2014

2/20/2014 Deadline

Become a Computer Science Fellow in NYC or teach STEM in one of 48 locations nationally, with Teach For America.

Despite the incredible opportunities presented to students by a strong foundation in computer science, the subject is only offered in one out of ten high schools in America. Access to computer science education is empowering: five of the fastest growing occupations are in computing, and computing-related jobs have among the highest entry-level salaries. We have a tremendous opportunity and role to play in ensuring that students in low income communities have access to CS. Although relatively few schools offer CS courses, opportunity gaps persist, impacting the diversity of the tech sector. Black students make up just two percent of all AP computer science test-takers, and the single largest black-white scoring gap among all AP exams is in computer science.

Apply to the 2014 Teach For America Corps and become a Computer Science Fellow in NYC. Teach For America has teamed up with National Science Foundation, and the NYC Department of Education to support a new Computer Science Fellows initiative in New York City. Teach For America will train and support a group of computer science teachers in New York City during the 2014-2015 school year with hopes to expand our pilot to other regional sites. This is where you come in! We need your talent and leadership to ensure that all kids have access to computer science education. Don’t have a background in computer science? We’re looking for teachers in STEM and all K-12 academic subjects to teach in our 48 regions across the country.

Teach For America’s FINAL application deadline is on February 20th, 2014. To learn more and apply, visit us at www.teachforamerica.org and follow TFA’s STEM Initiative @TFA_STEM. To indicate interest in the Computer Science Fellows initiative, email Hillary Wool, Regional Director of Recruitment – New York State, at hillary.wool@teachforamerica.org.

About Teach For America: Teach For America is developing a movement of leaders who will help drive change at every level of our education system toward the goal of justice and equity. These leaders start their paths as corps members who teach for two years in urban and rural high-need communities and help students make the academic progress that expands their opportunities. Deeply affected by their teaching experience, our alumni continue to advocate for students and build lasting change in many different roles and fields. Join our network of 11,000 corps members teaching in 48 regions across the country, plus 32,000 alumni who work across sectors to create change.

Full salary and benefits. Candidates from all majors and academic backgrounds are eligible to apply to Teach For America. Applicants with computer science backgrounds and an interest in teaching in NYC will be considered for the Computer Science Fellows. Juniors are eligible to apply at this deadline for the 2015 Corps.
