DSET Intern Initiative
As part of the community, DSET’s goal is to enable Simulation, Education & Training with positive action. It is known that we are losing talent from our teams because students and trainees in our area leave upon graduation. We are losing those skills vital for our future and the customers future. We have an aging and homogenous workforce that cannot make the most of the talent of opportunities that diversification and youth can bring.
Supported Internships within the Military, Industry and Academia.
- By supported we mean either paid or with expenses support (eg: the provision of accommodation and travel expenses).
The capture of current and past Intern information – contact details and experience.
Provide a DSET Intern Sponsorship for Interns to attend and have their accommodation expenses covered as a minimum.
Enable a pool of Interns that can be engaged by employers during holidays for employment on short-term contracts.
Engage Academia to promote Simulation & Training as a professional field with career potential.
The Initial Actions
Interns and Students
If you are an Intern who would like to participate then please complete the short survey below. Your contact details will NOT be shared directly with employers. Opportunities for Internships or Employment will become available for you to browse. In the future (after consultation with you) we may make this searchable for Employers by skills and availability.
Employers and Organisations
If you are an Employer or Organisation that would like to participate and advertise opportunities please complete the short survey below. Your opportunities will be able to be uploaded in the future for Interns to apply for.
DSET Intern Sponsorships
At DSET we already provide a sponsorship from our own pocket and anyone can contact us to apply for this. We are asking for Industry and Organisations to sponsor Interns for just £350 per place for 2020. Thank you for our first Intern Sponsorship this year, supported by SimCentric Technologies. Sponsors will get to meet their Interns at the Conference each year and have their details passed to those Interns. You’ll also be supporting the future of our community.
The DSET team are available to come and talk with students about the opportunities of MS&T as well as raising the profile of your students and courses to Industry and Organisations. If you are interested in participating please complete the short survey below.
