How does CIBC benefit from the partnership?

This was the first time CIBC partnered with a highschool organization. Four TKS students engaged in a summer internship with CIBC, where they worked on exciting new initiatives in areas that involved augmented reality and customer engagement. The students presented in front of 400+ employees during the CIBC Digital all-hands meetings and spoke about the work they were doing, as well as their personal projects in blockchain, AI, and phage therapy. It was motivating for employees to see how much young people can do. CIBC has now partnered with TKS for a third summer to provide internships and opportunities for students.

How do students benefit from working with CIBC?
