Plug In Fellows Bootcamp for students kicks off

On June 30, 2022, Plug In South LA hosted its first workshop session for the Plug In Fellows Boot Camp at Verizon’s 5G Tour Lab. The Plug In Tech Fellows Internship is an eight-week program that gives tech industry exposure to talented BIPOC high school and community college students. The event started at 10:00 a.m. PT and included guest speaker, Dion Fulwood, a Software Engineer from Atticus delivering the lecture on how to start off your career on the right track. During the day,  the fellows learned everything they would need to consider when starting a professional career. More specifically, they learned how to identify if a position was a good fit, received interview tips, and then how to successfully network professionally. The fellows then were able to ask questions relevant to their future careers in a 20-minute Q&A session. Lunch was provided by the fellows, while Plug In founder, Derek Smith was amongst the mentors to be present at the event providing information to the fellows to use in the growth of their careers.
