Bitcoin Talent Co. Partners With Summer of Bitcoin to Launch Summer 2023 Bitcoin Industry Apprenticeship (BIA) Program
Building from Summer of Bitcoin's expertise offering summer internships in the free and open source software (FOSS) space since 2021, this joint effort will unlock additional opportunities for students to spend time learning from and contributing to the operations of venture-funded Bitcoin companies.

.   Today, Bitcoin Talent Co. and Summer of Bitcoin announce a joint partnership to offer internship opportunities in the Bitcoin industry exclusively for students pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies from universities in North America and Europe. With applications opening today, the program will run from June 12 to August 25.

Over the past several years, top students have pursued internships with FAANG companies and, more recently, in the "Crypto / Web3" space. While those industries suffer ongoing reductions in force and business closures altogether, Bitcoin-only companies continue building and marching forward to a steady drumbeat. As the larger macroeconomic and geopolitical backdrop provides persistent examples of Bitcoin's importance, we see this as the perfect time to dedicate one's career to helping this industry grow.

As a student, this program can offer the following:

  • Industry Exposure and Networking: An opportunity to connect with professionals in your field, establish relationships, and be matched with a mentor who can guide you throughout the program and after as you plan your future career path.
  • Skill Development: Gain hands-on experience in your field and develop practical skills in the world of Bitcoin.
  • Learn About Bitcoin: Gain an in-depth understanding of Bitcoin through educational material provided throughout the program, which can be applied to various industries and fields.
  • Start Your Career: Over 30% of interns graduating from university have been offered full-time roles after participating in Summer of Bitcoin's previous open-source internship programs.
