SAP is proud to offer a new opportunity on the West Coast for high school students interested in computer science. The program, called “Professional Orientation,” is a unique week-long summer program hosted by SAP Cloud Business group at SAP’s San Ramon Office in California. A select group of exceptional applicants will attend daily, interactive sessions led by SAP’s industry experts. These sessions will introduce students to a variety of topics, including data analytics, coding, as well as a general overview of popular SAP products and services. Students will also receive educational and career guidance from professionals who can provide them with helpful insights into the promising future of pursuing a career in the tech industry.
So, why SAP and why now? Because it’s never too early for high school students to begin planning for their futures, and students who start now will have an advantage as they enter college. As they look beyond graduation towards their careers, students can benefit from having as many resources at their exposal as possible. Let SAP be one of those resources. SAP wants to provide students that have a passion for computer science with professional guidance to ensure that they are able to make informed decisions as they set out upon their educational and career journeys.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and high school transcript to Tibby Jennings (firstname.lastname@example.org). Reference letters are also welcome, but not required. Ideal candidates will demonstrate a keen interest in the STEM subject matter and a desire to pursue further study and/or a career in a STEM-related field.
A few extraordinary students from the orientation will be invited back the next year to participate in the prestigious Cloud Business Group Innovation STEM internship program.
Applications will be accepted until May 20, 2018. Students admitted to the program will be notified of the decision by May 27.
