We are Upkey, a Chicago based educational technology (EdTech) company with the mission to level the playing field and close the opportunity gap for students.

We believe that by using cutting-edge technology, and superior design and user experience, we can deliver powerful and life-changing learning experiences to millions of students around the world. Our headquarters is in Chicago but we are mostly virtual with an amazing team in the US and around the world.

We offer a summer internship that is virtual and is geared towards helping students with their professional development.

About The Summer Internship Program

Upkey’s Summer Internship Program brings students together from 70 different countries and helps them learn 21st century skills, work on projects, and learn career-changing skills from top professionals. Even though this is an Internship program, our focus is for you to learn, grow and walk away with strong bullet points on your resume.

As a Virtual Intern, you’ll develop hard skills in business, technology, communication and entrepreneurship. On top of that, you’ll get access to industry professionals, gain industry insights, and learn transferable 21st-century skills while building social capital.

What you can expect during your 8 week, unpaid internship:
  • Deep dives into business, marketing, communication, technology, and leadership skills.
  • Working in teams with students from different backgrounds and countries and doing projects with Upkey and other top companies that are our partners.
  • You will work an average of 10-15 hours per week, which includes all of your sessions and learnings. Of course, you can do more or less depending on your schedule. The internship is flexible and designed for you.
  • An ever-expanding network: on average, VIP students triple their network and connections in 8 weeks or less.
  • Access to top executives and mentors on leadership training and global initiatives.
  • Our 8-week program is designed to qualify you to receive three college credits from Trinity Christian College that are applicable to any institution. We will work with your school to help ensure that they provide those credits to you.
  • You will receive a certificate of completion and full access to all Upkey career assistance services.
Do you have grit and want to make a difference? Do you like to learn, grow, and network? Do you need an internship that can define and improve your professional life? If so, apply in just a few minutes.
