Last month, Innovative Defense Technologies (IDT) launched its 2021 Summer Internship Program. This year, the company welcomes 14 interns who join existing co-ops to work with employees from IDT’s four offices. As in 2020, this year’s program is being conducted virtually due to lingering COVID-19 restrictions.
IDT’s internship program, which has run uninterrupted since 2008, offers qualified students the opportunity to learn from experts and perform meaningful work that is making a difference. Throughout the summer, they actively participate in IDT’s mission to transform the speed at which the Department of Defense (DOD) delivers software-based capabilities.
Program components include exposure to cutting-edge technologies, valuable training, individual mentoring, and team building events. Over the course of 12 weeks at IDT, each intern has the opportunity to participate in a variety of Lunch and Learns where they hear more about what we do, our engineering processes, the school-to-work transition, and various career tracks.
