OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRE-COLLEGE
At Pfizer, we host pre-college programs to give students a way of finding out more about our great careers in technology. Here you will find information to excite and educate young minds and show how they can contribute to the breakthroughs that changes patients’ lives.
High school graduates don’t have to wait until an internship to gain useful experience. This pre-college program will give them a real insight in to what a career in technology could look like, specifically technology careers at Pfizer.
PRACTICAL TECHNOLOGY CAREER EXPERIENCE FOR HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES
Our pre-college summer programs are designed with school learners in mind, to provide exposure to as many career paths in technology as possible – including software engineer, application developer, business analyst, project manager and business partner.
In the pre-collegiate program, students can get involved in simple coding, using tools like Tableau to visualize large data sets, or even communication planning before the launch of a project. Afterwards, rising freshmen and rising sophomores could find themselves refocusing on the major they want to take, or taking part in extracurricular work while in college. All of them will discover it is an experience they can take into their college career.
The pre-college program is aimed at high school graduates nominated by STEM teachers at participating outreach schools in Groton, CT and Collegeville, PA. The students need to be aged at least 18 and entering college with a technology-focused major, especially Computer Science.
