SAP is proud to offer a new opportunity for high school students interested in computer science. Created by SAP CoE NA with participation from Drexel University, the Professional Orientation is an annual, weeklong summer program that provides students with the chance to visit SAP, learn about its technologies, and receive educational and career guidance. Students attend daily, interactive sessions on a variety of topics, including data analytics, coding, and SAP products. These sessions, which are taught by SAP employees, give students the opportunity to ask questions and engage with successful individuals in the field of computer science.
“I cannot thank you enough for this opportunity and I hope that you can thank everyone that made this week possible for us again on my behalf. I have come away from this program with a new found desire to pursue a computer related career which is invaluable to me.”
– Byron Gaspard, Radnor High School
“I learned that programming and coding, while complicated, is not impossible for me to learn and it is a lot of fun. I also learned that SAP is an amazing place to work and is a definite career option for me in the future. . . . If SAP has this program again next year, I will definitely sign up!”
-Giuliana Marchetti, Simsbury High School
For all students, the end of high school is a crossroads. It is a time when they must choose a direction for their education and career. SAP and Drexel want to be involved at this important juncture to ensure that those students who are passionate about computer science receive the guidance necessary to make informed decisions about their future.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and high school transcript to Megan Rech (firstname.lastname@example.org). Reference letters are also welcome, but not required. Ideal candidates will have a strong interest in STEM and a desire to pursue further study and/or a career in a STEM-related field.
