Google aspires to be an organization that reflects the globally diverse audience that our search engine and tools serve. We believe that in addition to hiring the best talent, a diversity of perspectives, ideas and cultures leads to the creation of better products and services. This diversity of our employees and partners serves as the foundation for us to better serve our diverse customers and stakeholders all over the world.
Google is also invested in increasing the pipeline of future computer scientists and software developers, particularly those who are historically underrepresented in the field. Many aspiring computer scientists could benefit from a program that bridges the gap between academic study and a professional internship. Google wants to inspire these students to continue in the field with such a program.
With this in mind, Google announces the BOLD Engineering Internship in Japan for Summer 2013. Current bachelor students majoring, or intending to major, in
Computer Science or a closely related field will be selected to participate. Students who are a member of a group that is historically under-represented in the technology industry are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to women and students with disabilities.
