Technology Leadership Forum welcomes internship applications

The Technology Leadership Forum is calling for recent graduates or college students studying information technology to apply for its 2021 summer internship programme.

The TLF said successful candidates will undergo an intensive 12-week paid summer programme combining classroom learning, team projects and work experience at participating companies.

It added that this combination of theoretical learning and on-the-job practice is to ensure that interns acquire a rich experience in the information communications technology industry.

Interns will develop their networking skills and develop relationships in the ICT community which will guide them in their career pathways, the TLF said.

The TLF was founded 14 years ago as a response to the growing need for qualified Bermudian talent in the ICT field. It aims to encourage Bermuda’s information technology students to become exposed to the many varied career paths that they can pursue across many industries.

Ian Cook, chairman of the TLF, said: "The Technology Leadership Forum has achieved many outstanding successes since its formation that have laid the foundation for numerous ICT professionals that were beginning their careers. Our approach is simple, provide a meaningful professional networking and learning platform for ICT enthusiasts.”

More than 90 alumni who successfully completed the programme actively work in the technology industry today, and TLF alumni are provided continued mentorship and training opportunities to enable them to become Bermuda’s ICT leaders.

Companies and business leaders interested in supporting the growing need for the next IT leaders of Bermuda are encouraged to become sponsors, the TLF said.

As a TLF sponsor an organisation receives access to IT Bermudian talent and assists with guiding and mentoring TLF alumni through various professional development and management training opportunities offered by local experts.

The TLF thanked its “valued sponsors and partners who have tangibly demonstrated their support for the initiative over the past year”, including Validus Re, Government of Bermuda, W&W Solutions, CCS Group, Deloitte, Stablehouse, Liberty Specialty Markets, RenaissanceRe and AXA XL.

For more information on the TLF internship programme, sponsorship, and to apply for an internship, see www.TLF.bm or e-mail info@tlf.bm. The application deadline for the summer internship programme is March 31.
