‘Don’t leave: you’re all hired,’ government boss tells tech interns | FCW


Coding it Forward, which I have blogged about before, this summer fielded its third cohort of “civic digital fellows” in the federal government. From only 14 fellows the first year, the program was up to 54 this year, at six agencies.

This effort, started by college undergraduates at Harvard and other schools, has been very carefully designed to give students a good experience.

A central feature is that interns must be given meaningful work assignments that allow them to support the mission of the agency where they are working – none of the presentations that traditionally marked student IT internships in Washington.
