The Appian First Year Forward program is designed to engage with underclassmen to provide support, mentorship, and most importantly, to grow an affinity with students who may consider Appian in the future.

About the Program:

The Appian First Year Forward program is a virtual opportunity dedicated to giving you insight into the daily life at Appian and the chance to collaborate with technical Appian employees throughout an interactive day of technical and professional development workshops. You'll even get the chance to hear directly from top leadership!

The experience does not end there! Our Engineers want to help you throughout your college career! As a part of this highly-selective program, you will be paired with an Appian developer or technical consultant who will serve as a professional mentor to guide you through the remainder of your collegiate journey.

About You:
  • Currently enrolled in a B.S. or B.A. in Computer Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Mathematics, or a similar major
  • Demonstrated passion for technology
  • Excitement about future opportunities with Appian

Nice to have Experience:
  • Individual projects outside of school work
  • Skills and interests related to program languages and applications
  • Extracurricular activities and leadership experience within or outside of the university, and/or volunteer work
  • Attendance/participation of events related to computer programming such as hackathons, bitcamps, codefests, professional technical events, etc.

How to apply:

Please submit your resume along with a cover letter. Your cover letter should address these three questions: What are you most passionate about, and how do your passions relate to your selected major? What is your proudest accomplishment to date?, What do you want to be when you grow up (have fun with this last one!).

If you are not selected this year, you will still remain in candidacy for future opportunities at Appian.
