About Us

Founded in April of 2003, Explore Rochester IT was created to promote the Rochester area as a great place to live, work, and build a career in information technology. The Chief Information Officers from ten of the major employers in Rochester came together to discuss ways to promote their companies to Rochester area college students. The result was a summer internship program that allows college students to get a taste of employment in three different companies over the course of nine weeks and a fall symposium that allows students to meet and interact with IT professionals, including the CIOs themselves, from their respective companies.

Mission Statement

To increase the awareness, excitement and exposure of Rochester area IT employment opportunities among local college students in an effort to enhance the IT community within Rochester.
