Future Leaders in Technology Internship
The Future Leaders in Technology (FLITE) program offers an opportunity for Georgetown undergraduates to get summer work experience in the technology sector. Students will have a paid summer internship at a technology company in one of three locations: Silicon Valley, New York City, or Washington, D.C. Internships can be in any functional area, including product management, policy research, or market analysis. FLITE seeks to provide students with financial assistance for travel, housing and incidental costs as needed.
Personal Narrative and Professional Discernment
Connected to the university’s Jesuit value of Contemplation in Action and based on the Cognitive Information Processing model, this course engages students first in self-reflection and exploration. By developing and articulating self-knowledge students can create a narrative related to their values, skills, interests, and personality. Once this narrative is formed, students learn how to share their story verbally, in writing, and how this connects to vocational options and career-specific strategies such as writing resumes, interviewing, and networking. Students can register for this 1-credit course during normal course registration times on MyAccess.
