For the past few months, 2U welcomed 25 interns (which we call 2terns) as a part of our internship program. Our 2terns contributed to a variety of projects across different departments throughout the organization that had a positive impact on what we do at 2U. We cannot believe how quickly our time with them flew by but we are excited to see what their next adventures hold and know they will do considerable things in their future careers. We'd also like to recognize the incredible team who worked behind the scenes to ensure our HQ 2tern program was a success! From recruiting and onboarding to mentoring and event planning, our mighty project team worked tirelessly to ensure our 2terns were able to gain important experience in their fields of interest, learn new and valuable professional skills, and create lasting connections during their time at 2U. #LifeAt2U #Internship #Interns #SummerInternship2023

The latest conversations about Tech




Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    1. Associate Product Manager II Interview

      Anonymous Employee in United States
      No Offer
      Negative Experience
      Easy Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at 2U (United States) in Sep 2023


      I applied for a position and soon after received a typical email from the recruiter. After speaking with the recruiter, I was emailed a day later to schedule my interview with the hiring manager and another team leader. However, only one person showed up to the interview. It was evident that they were not interested, as the interview ended after just 12 minutes. I followed up two days later, and they gave me a take-home assignment. I completed it within a few hours, but the next day, I received a generic 'thank you' email. I suspected from the start that it might be a waste of time, especially when I noticed they reposted the position on the day of my interview. If a company asks a candidate to complete a take-home assessment, they owe the candidate feedback or a reason if they're not selected. I was overqualified for the role, and having my time wasted like this was disrespectful.

      Why are you interested in this role?
