Would you recommend VisibleThread to current students seeing internship.? Why.?

I would strongly recommend VisibleThread to any students who are interested in software development. VisibleThread gives you the opportunity to learn a wide range of skills related to web development. My colleagues were extremely accommodating and helpful, ensuring that I got the maximum out of six months I worked there . The internship is a great opportunity to work in a small, supportive and experienced dev team resulting in what was for me an extremely enjoyable and worthwhile experience.- Joseph Carnec – 1st February – 1st August

Absolutely. Having done internships in several companies, VisibleThread stood out to me as an excellent place to be an intern. I was treated as an engineer, a valued member of the team, and was trusted to design and implement customer-facing solutions to unique problems. I continually felt like I was contributing something valuable to the company and its customers, which is not something that every internship can provide.- Cian Nugent McGealy, January-August 2020
