For the past 14 years, each summer we have been running an internship program for students and fresh graduates who are looking to improve their skills and gain real-life experience. And every year, we know the autumn has arrived when our Cool Summer Internship is wrapping up. So we asked a couple of interns from this year’s program to share some thoughts with us.
Internships are a great way to make the most out of the summer for students and post-graduates. Simply because they provide a hands-on glimpse into an industry before actually joining it. Furthermore, programs like the 4PSA Cool Summer Internship are beneficial both personally and professionally.
The IT Industry is a highly competitive field. People need all the advantages they can get in order to gain a good job with the company of their dreams. A summer internship in the field can be the launch pad towards that dream coming true. It will help you get the experience that most companies are looking.
Actually, a summer internship could help you land a job sooner than you think, since companies in the U.S. offer full-time positions to about 60 percent of their interns. But even if you don’t get hired by the company you intern for, the experience, skills, and connections you make are sure to increase your chances to succeed in the future.
Internships are meant to teach young people the ropes of a profession. It is an opportunity for them to learn by doing, while being guided and mentored by more experienced professionals. For a student, an internship is a chance to peek into the life after graduation and earn valuable skills.
For the past two weeks, we’ve been meeting with students from the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computers and Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. We’re really pumped up to talk to students about our Cool Summer Internship, the career opportunities and the perks at 4PSA. Internships are a tradition we’re really fond of here, and this is our 8th edition.
Students who applied to our internship at the LSAC IT&C Job Fair were in for a surprise. Five lucky winners got vouchers at a hip escape room in Bucharest. Since we’re after individuals with inquisitive minds, great attention to details and a strong interest in finding the best solution to a problem, we figured getting out from an escape room would be a great treat for such characters.
Last week was all about summer and students for us, as we kicked off our 9th internship program. We were very happy to meet a new generation of brilliant future computer engineers at the LSAC IT&C Job Fair and to showcase our Cool Summer Internship. The participants got the chance to interact with our team and our CEO, find out more about us, what we’re working on and what it takes to become one of our Clouders.
Every March, excitement takes over our office. Everyone gets giddy and it’s quite clear we’re just counting down the days ’till a new edition of Cool Summer Internship! This is the exact situation we’re in right now, so let’s take a closer look at what we have in store for this year 🙂
We’re debuting our 8th internship program during the LSAC IT&C Job Fair today. We’re welcoming brilliant future engineers to our presentation at the Automation and Computers Faculty. Let’s meet in EC105 hall starting 2 PM. This is a great opportunity for all students to find out more about us, what we’re working on and what it takes to become one of our Clouders. Both our CEO, Bogdan Carstoiu, and our newest Clouders will have interesting stories to share.
The amount of time spent on mobile apps has increased by 21% from 2014 to 2015, with the mobile app market being worth an estimated $58 billion. That amount will rise to $77 billion by 2017, according to research conducted this year. But it’s not the mobile apps themselves that generate all this money – it’s the services behind them.
At the dawn of the app store gold rush – as the media affectionately calls it – apps were low in numbers and simplistic: reminders, photography, note taking, doodling apps, match-three games etc. As time progressed, not only were there more apps to be found, but their complexity grew as well, and so did the hardware they ran on. Their numbers grew from mere thousands to billions, as more developers started leveraging newer, more advanced technology, but also another game changer
Success in business depends as much on innovation as it does on adaptability, strategy, marketing, and of course solid investments. The evidence in favor of digital investments as a key driver is overwhelming. In the not too distant future, a company’s communication and collaboration efforts will be inherently reliant on cloud technology. And the reason is simple: everybody’s doing it, and he who doesn’t falls behind in reach, discoverability, customer satisfaction and many other areas that make or break a business.
Fierce competition, but also the always-on nature of cloud solutions, forcefully dictate the need to incorporate technology as a business strategy. Research conducted by IDG Enterprise gives us a bird’s eye view of the direction of spending, areas of investment and drivers, with a focus on the communication tools employed (or soon-to-be-employed) at large companies
Sales, marketing, consulting… these are paid positions that society finds useful in many contexts, but the world and its future are not dependent on these occupations. Engineering, however, is something the world cannot do without.
Engineering can be considered the world’s oldest profession because it predates humanity. Just ask Charles Darwin, whose famous theory of evolution is based on the idea that nature constantly engineers itself to survive and adapt. Bruce Dickinson surely agrees. According to the famous rocker, engineering is one of the most important things you can teach a child to aspire to
