What we are looking for in interns
There are a few qualities that we think will make a successful intern at SearchShark.
- First and foremost, creative problem solving abilities are key. Whether you are dealing with an unruly copy machine or a serious bug in a piece of code, you should be able to think creatively about the problem at hand.
- We are also looking for interns with fantastic communication skills, because software development is not just about sitting alone typing on your desktop. As a part of the SearchShark team, you will be interacting with all levels of professionals in our company.
- A self-starting mindset is another desirable quality. In your future full time career as a software developer or engineer, you will often be responsible for completing certain tasks on your own. Thinking of an internship as preparation for your career in the tech industry, a successful intern has the capabilities to initiate tasks themselves.
- Last and most important, being coachable and excited to learn is a necessary quality in an intern! Our software experts at SearchShark have an incredible amount of combined knowledge to share with you. We want you to gain as much knowledge and practical, hands-on experience as possible during your time here.
