In 2021, 48 college students and recent grads found paid internships with 24 startups through the Digital Summer Clinic internship program — a partnership between the Center for Digital Engagement at Eastern Michigan University and Ann Arbor SPARK. In the seven years since the partnership began, many of the 218 students who have graduated from the program secured full-time positions as a direct result of their participation.
Digital Summer Clinic interns gain experience in digital advertising, content creation, website and app development, UX, CX, and data science. They also have the opportunity to connect with mentors and industry professionals. Seventy-five percent of clinic interns move on to jobs in southeastern Michigan’s high-tech economy and 84 percent stay in the State of Michigan.
Returning for its second year with a2Tech360, this virtual event will spotlight some of the interns, mentors, and companies involved in the program as well as the value this program provides to everyone involved.
This event is presented by the Digital Summer Clinic.
