Launch@Apple is a new Apple mentoring initiative targeted at first-generation college students.
The mentorship program is being offered for first-generation first-year college students and sophomores majoring in finance, economics, and accounting.
Through this program, Apple will match students one-on-one with Apple mentors and provide resources for learning and opportunities.
Opportunities for job shadowing, paid externships, and paid internships may also be available to Launch participants.
This new Apple mentorship program kicks off in early 2021.
Participants will need to meet the following qualifications:
- In the first or second year of college
- A parent or legal guardian has not obtained a college degree
- Intending to major in finance, economics, accounting, or similar discipline relating to business, mathematics, commerce, or data analytics and
- eager to learn about working in finance in a fast-paced, innovative environment
Your email to Apple should cover the following:
To Apple, applicants will need to send an email to email@example.com by Friday, Jan 8th, 2021.
This is a great Apple initiative that is not only designed to provide a platform for aspiring students but will also help Apple find new talent from different universities.
This program is somewhat designed along the lines of Google’s summer of the code mentorship program. Still, the major difference is that Apple’s Launch program is looking more for business and economics majors than developers and programmers.
Amazon also had a similar mentorship program for Arts and Science majors in collaboration with the University of Washington.
Please note that the deadline for your email submission is Jan 8th, 2021.
