What is Xtern?
The Xtern program places Sophomore and Junior level students with a high-growth tech company in Indianapolis for a 10-week, full-time, paid internship over the summer. Throughout the summer program, students will work alongside industry leaders at Indy’s fastest-growing tech companies, live and make friends with more than 100 other Xterns from around the country, and experience why Indianapolis is such an awesome place to live.
Xtern finalist applicants will interview with 3-5 potential tech companies for their internship virtually at Xtern Finalist Day this November. By the end of the event, most Xterns will have matched with their host company for their 2021 internship. If that does not happen, the TechPoint team will provide continued one-on-one company connections and work with you to find your internship placement.
