4-Month Internship (September – December 2021)

WORK TERM: 4-month Fall 2021 term (September – December)



What Can I Expect from the Velocity Technology Development Program?  

This is not your average internship or co-op! This is a customized experience that focuses on providing you with the development and tools you need to grow your career. In Velocity, you will gain exposure to both business and technology by having a customized plan for your next internship or co-op. Yes, you read that correctly. After successfully completing your first co-op or internship, we will work with you to establish a learning and mentorship plan which also outlines your future placements. As a result, you will get to learn, grow and experiment within different parts of our technology ecosystem.

How do I apply?

For students, we believe in evaluating you through relationships over resumes, and are focused on learning about who you are and what you’re interested in to uncover your true potential.  In short, we don’t believe resumes will provide us with an accurate depiction of what you’re truly about in order to properly assess your potential.  Instead, we want to get to know you and hear about the experiences that have shaped you.  We know… this might sound crazy but we do not want you to submit your resume.  Instead, we ask that as part of your application, you complete the below:
