QTC’s Paid Summer Internship Program Mentors Emerging Professionals
Since 2016, QTC has offered paid summer internships for upcoming graduates and mentored emerging professionals into the world of corporate business. The benefits our interns receive include a competitive hourly wage, their own workspace, and work full-time.
At QTC, coffee runs are tasks of the past. We believe in collaborating with the fresh perspective that interns bring into our teams, and they work on innovative projects in the healthcare field. QTC is completely digital and paper-free, so there’s no paper pushing here. We teach responsibility early on and encourage our interns to build their skills from the classroom to the office.
Many former summer interns embody our values to the fullest and now work at QTC full-time. Katherine Ramirez, QTC’s Social Media Coordinator, did exactly that as the Communications Department first ever intern.
“I applied everything I learned in my undergraduate classes into practice,” Katherine said. “The mentorship my manager provided and QTC’s hands-on approach gave me the experience I needed for a full-time position and guided my career development.”
QTC believes that paid internship opportunities can open doors for college students. The National Association of Colleges and Employers’ Class of 2019 Student Survey supports this belief— they found that 66.4% of 2019 graduates with a paid internship received a job offer.
We invest in interns because we want them to get to know about us and how we work. Our dedicated outreach program develops working relationships with local schools. So when the summer comes, and positions become available, interns are welcomed to apply.
