HNG Internship 8: My Goals

About The Internship

HNG Internship is a virtual internship program for people learning to code or design. It usually runs for around 3 months.

The program has 10 stages. Those who are able to fulfill the given tasks within a stated timeframe advance to the next stage.

HNGi8 is the eighth cohort of the program and it's organized by the Zuri Team.

My Goals for Participating in The HNGi8 Cohort

  • Meet and connect with other developers and designers.

  • Work on challenging projects to improve my skills.

  • Access to Job opportunities - HNG matches finalists to its pool of potential employers.

  • Get an HNG T-Shirt and bragging rights on Twitter (IYKYK)
