They are driven to seek cutting-edge, people-first solutions to some of the world’s most vexing business challenges. If your passion runs in that same direction, it’s time to consider a career with Extreme.

HBCU Connect and Extreme Networks partnered together to encourage African American professionals to pursue careers in internet technology. The company is offering an internship that they would like to share with HBCU students. “I have quite the “Sky’s-The-Limit” feeling right now and am very much looking forward to getting this initiative airborne.” says Enterprise Account Executive Jarrod A. Washington.



Understanding the need for African Americans in STEM related fields, Extreme Networks will be launching this internship opportunity on the HBCU Connect website. Anyone with a profile and uploaded resume can apply.
