Executives at Terakeet, a Syracuse company that works with Web and Internet technologies and speech recognition software, enjoy having interns and usually employ several throughout each year.
Finding them, however, is not always easy.
“[Finding them is] probably one of the most dreaded things in our company,” says Patrick Danial, chief technology officer and co-founder of Terakeet. “We love doing it, but it takes so much time.”
This year, however, was a little easier. Terakeet was one of the first companies to use the new industry co-op program launched in 2006 by the New York State Center for Advanced Technology in Computer Applications and Software Engineering (CASE) at Syracuse University.
