PORTLAND, Maine (12/01/2020). Tilson, a national network development and information infrastructure professional services firm, launched its summer 2021 internship program this week as it continues to invest in the development of its workforce and the next generation of industry leaders on mission to build America’s information infrastructure. During the summer 2020 program, Tilson selected more 15 students from across the country to take part in its highly competitive 16-week program, conducted 100% remotely due to the pandemic. Of those 15 interns, nine students continued to work part-time at Tilson through the fall and four interns have accepted full-time positions at Tilson since last summer’s program. The virtual program this year included increased engagement with teams and senior leadership through video discussions and live presentations to facilitate networking opportunities.

“The health and safety of our team is always our top priority at Tilson, and we are proud that we were able to provide a substantial and impactful virtual learning experience,” said Joshua Broder, Tilson CEO. “With so many internship programs cancelled this year, I’m grateful to our mentors who stepped up to adapt our program and we look forward to another successful program next year.”
