DENVER (AP) — The Denver Web Development Intern Program is getting more open as more employers look for candidates who can quickly build web applications.
Program directors are encouraging applicants to get out there and show off their skills by taking the DenverWebDeveloperProgram.com website and writing about their experience at a company they have worked for.
The website is a place for employers to find applicants to train and develop their own developers.
“It’s not a traditional intern program, it’s a training program.
It’s a really exciting opportunity,” said Matt Moseley, who leads the Denver Web Developers Intern Program.
He said applicants need to have some experience working in a web development field.
“You need to know how to use a website and have some programming skills,” Mosely said.
Mosely says most of the program’s applications are from employers that are looking for a new talent.
“Some of them have had experience with us before,” Mesely said, adding that some employers are hiring new developers as a result of the DenverProgram.
The DenverWeb Development Intern program is a three-week, two-day program in which the students learn coding skills and then move into a two-week summer internship.
Students work in Denver, Colorado, for three weeks.
Mosesley said the internship gives students a chance to develop their skills and get feedback on their coding.
“The feedback is that they’ve done well,” he said.
The program is one of many online training programs that are being offered in response to the hiring freeze imposed by President Donald Trump earlier this year.
Trump has been working to create an industry that can compete with the online jobs that companies like Facebook and Amazon offer.
He is also pushing for employers and workers to come together and work together more to create a more equal and more prosperous America.
