What it’s like to be an Xtern

“Xtern has proved to be invaluable to my summer experience and my college experience as a whole. The program not only connected me with a network of talented, powerful players in the Indy tech community, as well as a paid internship at an incredible company, it helped me to have one of the best and most productive summers of my college experience.”
