Do you enjoy building new algorithmic processes? Do you like thinking about computational theories and how they can scale to solve big technical problems? If your answer is yes, then you’re a perfect candidate for a computer science internship.
But what does an internship in computer science involve and what types of companies can you work for? A CS internship can take you down a lot of different paths, often depending on what type of programming languages you currently use and which you want to learn. Whether you are a front end coder, using Java and CSS, a back-end coder who currently works with Ruby, Python, or Scala, or a mobile developer who knows how to build on either the Android or the iPhone platform, there are a lot of ways you can make an impact at companies of various sizes. Chances are, by holding an internship in computer science, you’ll be working with several of these languages and learning the intricacies of each from veterans with plenty of experience in the field.
The really exciting thing about a computer science internship is the range of different companies to work for. Whether it’s a small startup, that needs extra hands to help push new code daily, or a large non-profit that needs a tech savvy student to build new site features, your skills will be in high demand during your computer science internship and there will be no shortage of challenges or learning experiences.
One of the other great aspects of being a computer science major is that your skills are in high demand. According to a recent Forbes study computer science majors are one of the top 10 most sought after hires, and often are getting paid some of the most competitive wages in the country for both jobs and internships. Average salaries tend to be in the $15 to $17 per hour range, but a really talented hacker can make up to $30 an hour at leading tech companies in Silicon Valley or Fortune 500s on the east coast or elsewhere.
With an internship in computer science, you will also be able to explore one of the many sub-fields such as computer graphics, computational problems, software engineering or quantitative analysis. So whether or not you’re a hard-core techie, any of the many CS internships will be the perfect start to developing a diverse skill set in relationship to writing code and advanced programming.
