Access highly-skilled tech talent through our college recruitment engine.

The TechPointX team will visit up to 30 campuses in the region and beyond to recruit the next generation of tech builders. Indy tech companies can rest assured that our Xterns are more than qualified.

Students live on IUPUI campus together and share their experiences working for your company with their peers. It’s a built-in marketing opportunity to help get your brand name to current Xterns and their friends as they go back to school and rave about what they did for you.

We take care of their after-hours, offer housing, and provide professional development and social activities that create the best summer internship experience.

Become a host company

“Our company had one Xtern each of the last two years and plans to have two next year. The talent level of our first Xtern, an Ohio State University student, was nothing short of remarkable. To be honest, I wasn’t even aware this level of talent existed at the intern level. He was assisting to train and mentor the rest of our intern class. That intern recently became a full-time hire.”
