Techpoint's Xtern program offers more than just a connection to a great company. Besides the perks of housing and some meals, we get to experience a community with other interns. Every week the program holds a ‘Meet-up Monday’ where we learn professional development tips like creating our brand, handling stress and understanding financial management. There are tech talks throughout the summer, focusing on various topics like big data to product management - presented by some of the companies that hired us. We also have opportunities to serve the Indianapolis community through volunteering with Butler Labs to show children how to code, as well as participating in the Indy-Civic hack-a-thon and many others. And, of course, we have plenty of time to meet up with other interns, make new friends, and explore the city after work.
