Microsoft has announced its summer 2012 internship program for high school students:
Here at Microsoft, high school students just like you will work on cutting-edge technology that will make a real difference in people’s lives all over the world. As an intern, your insider’s look into high-tech professions may give you a little inspiration as you make plans for college. It’ll also give you a head start on building a good resume. You’ll receive a competitive hourly wage plus a bus pass and software discounts. Sure beats scooping ice cream.
It’s a great opportunity for current junior or senior students. You work on actual projects and get paid, not just hang around and do busy work.
More info can be found here: Microsoft Summer Internship. You’ll need a resume, transcripts, and a recommendation from one of your teachers, so don’t wait until the last minute!
The deadline to apply is March 12, 2012.
