I’m pleased to share that our non-technical summer BOLD Immersion Program for Freshmen application has recently launched. You can find this application at http://google.eresources.com/applications/login.asp, and you can find more details at the BOLD Immersion Program for Freshmen website.
The Building Opportunities for Leadership & Development (BOLD) Diversity Immersion Program for Freshmen is designed to provide exposure into the technology industry for students who are historically under-represented in this field. Google invites current undergraduate first years to apply for a unique summer experience over four days at Google’s Mountain View Headquarters in August. The BOLD Immersion Program for Freshmen will provide participants with a rare glimpse into the technology industry; career opportunities at Google; and valuable professional and peer networks. We encourage students to take a chance and discover what it’s like to work at a technology company, particularly those who are pursuing non-technical degrees.
This summer experience includes an all expense-paid trip to Google offices in Mountain View and a robust program including tech talks, skill-building seminars, and of course, fun! We will have social activities, community and network building, and the opportunity to develop relationships with not only peers, but Googlers as well.
Please note that the application is a multi-step process, which will include a profile registration, general Google application, and BOLD Immersion application. The BOLD Immersion application consists of your resume, a short essay, and one reference from a professor or high school teacher, direct supervisor, or a mentor you have worked closely with in your school and community activities. Please review the BOLD Immersion website site for more details.
