The message

Message from
Dwarves Foundation

Dear my friends,I believe that Coronavirus will change the world permanently, of course including tech industry as well. The way of coronavirus-related layoffs has just started and we can name a few of famous unicorns such as AirBnB, Uber, Lyft, Yelp….There is no safe place now! Moreover, more jobs will be outsourced to foreign countries when remote work becomes the future. Consequently, job market will definitely be much more competitive than ever. I know now it’s not the right time for new graduates and senior-year students, who are actively looking for a first full-time job but have to compete with a ton of available experienced developers. I also know that your biggest disadvantage is due to lack of industrial experience and there is no shortcut to fulfill the gap quickly. We cannot change this fact, but we can definitely make things better. And the only way is to focus 200% on addressing your weaknesses and learning necessary technical skills during this summer. If you are feeling the same way, this internship program is for you! We are motivated to organize this internship program as a way to support younger generations during the crisis.Make your summer well spent or being left behind, the decision is on you!
