Tilson Expands Internship Opportunities for Veterans and 2020 Summer Participants

PORTLAND, Maine (12/05/2019). Tilson, a national network deployment and IT professional services firm, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its summer and year-round internship program as it continues to invest in the development of its workforce and the next generation of industry leaders. For Summer 2020, Tilson has more than doubled its opportunities for students eager to join a high-growth, national information technology company. Tilson has also recently partnered with the Department of Defense to offer SkillBridge Internships for transitioning Active Duty service members. Applications for both opportunities are now live on Tilson’s website. 

“Tilson’s 2019 summer internship program was well received because students had the opportunity to work with a mentor with deep industry experience for the duration of the summer. After 16 weeks, interns are a fully integrated and contributing part of the Tilson team, actually building America’s information infrastructure” said Joshua Broder, Tilson CEO. “We are thrilled with the success of last year’s program and I couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to include transitioning Active Duty service members through the SkillBridge program on a year-round basis.” 

As part of the program, Tilson interns are paired with industry mentors, work on real-time internal or client-facing projects and are exposed to state-of-the-art equipment, facilities, and processes. Interns will participate in monthly lunch and learns with senior leaders and gain on-the-job experience and knowledge tailored to the student’s education, experience, and interests. In the Summer of 2020, Tilson will hire students in more than 12 locations for the following areas of interest:
