Local students complete web development internship program | Community
This week, MAIA Consulting announced that the first three local students had completed the company’s first internship program aimed at growing the next generation of application development experts.
The three students, all of whom went through an eight-week training program, include Jasmin Holguin of New Mexico Highlands University, Isaiah Garcia of the University of New Mexico and Kaitlyn Vigil of Mora High School. Their efforts led to the completion of HelperApps for two local non-profit groups and a private client.
A HelperApp is a web-based application designed to help workers automate time-consuming tasks. They are provided exclusively to rural small business owners in northern New Mexico.
Once they graduate, interns can will be sponsored to learn application development from the University of the Central Community of New Mexico Program, which leads to a certificate recognized in all 50 states by the US Department of Labor.
MAIA will accept applications for the next Internship Program this summer, as the program will begin in August 2022.
