IBM BeLux organises a summer internship programme called Extreme Blue. This is IBM's most prestigious worldwide internship opportunity, which is an incubator for talent, technology and business innovation.
During the 11 weeks of the programme, IBM challenges the students to solve a very current business problem facing a particular client. After a fast-paced process of ideation, the students take on an ideal solution and work towards developing a technical proof of concept and business case for the solution they propose. Throughout this process the students take on ownership of the project, however they are closely guided by specialised mentors from IBM and have access to cutting edge IBM technology and IBM's global expertise. They will also present their final prototype solution on the European expo, where they will compete with student teams from the other participating European countries. To enhance the 'fun factor' of this program, we organise regular social activities.
For 2017, Extreme Blue are looking for 12 motivated, entrepreneurial and high-talented students that will work in teams of four students from technical and business backgrounds. Usually teams consist of 3 technical-profile students and 1 business-profile student. 12 students will participate in projects headquartered in IBM Brussels. Candidates may apply before the 30th April 2017 via the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Extreme Blue request that each candidate sends a copy of their CV and a motivation letter to email@example.com. Students can be either Master students or Bachelor students (in their final year). The internship will take place between the 26th of June and the 7th of September, 2017.
