2021 Internship Roundup
August 6, 2021
This week is the final week of our Summer Internship Program! We have enjoyed having our interns join us, in person and remotely, for the summer with their enthusiasm and new ideas.
Every year, BlackHorse hosts a summer internship program for some of the brightest minds looking to explore careers in the National Security space. BlackHorse is committed to creating a dynamic and encouraging environment for up-and-coming talent to have a direct impact on our National Security by contributing to real-world projects that produce game-changing solutions and technologies for our customers.
This year we had 18 interns join us from 10 different schools, with backgrounds ranging from various engineering fields to computer science to information technology.
Some highlights of the 2021 internship program include…
- A lunch panel discussion where former interns who now work at BlackHorse offered advice and answered questions for our interns to demonstrate how they were able to turn their internship experience into a career at BlackHorse.
- A series of Lunch N’ Learn sessions covering various topics spanning technology and aspects of working in the National Security space.
- One of our favorite days every year – Presentation Day! Each year, BlackHorse invites all employees to attend intern presentations to learn more about the projects they worked on during the summer. We even had Parsons CEO, Carey Smith and Parsons CTO, Rico Lorenzo attend and participate in the event this year! It is a chance for employees across the company to meet the interns and see examples of how they are helping our customers solve some of the toughest challenges in the National Security space. We love seeing the fresh ideas, energy, and passion that comes through in these presentations each year.
- Last, but not least we were visited by our friends at Ben & Jerry’s for a special National Intern Day treat!
We’re sad to see our 2021 interns go, but we hope to see them again in the National Security space – whether it’s working with us here at BlackHorse, our competitors, or directly with the government – using their talents to help our country protect and serve its citizens better. We will be starting to take applications for our 2022 Internship Program in the next several months so keep an eye out for announcements about next summer coming soon!
