n December 21st, the gaming testing laboratory and technical consultancy BMM Testlabs announced the 2018 BMM Testlabs Internship Program in partnership with AISES. Applications are now being accepted through February 16, 2018.
The 10-week internship will run from June through August 2018 at BMM's headquarters in Las Vegas. As a donor to the AISES scholarship fund for a number of years, BMM and AISES created the internship to further Tribal students' opportunities. The program will provide students with applied work experience and an opportunity to explore career options in the casino gaming industry. The intern will assist test engineers as part of a team responsible for: assessing gaming technology integrity, accountability and functionality, performing statistical analysis of gaming device and game probabilities, reviewing gaming device and system source code and assist with the development of testing procedures.
BMM's Jodi DiLascio, Director, Tribal Gaming and Member, NIGA Board of Directors, commented, "BMM is honored to be a part of a program that supports education for Tribal students. Our commitment to the Tribal community is great and we can only hope to continue to work with amazing organizations, like AISES, to expand their opportunities."
Kellie Jewett-Fernandez (Cheyenne River Lakota), Director of Business and Program Development with AISES stated, "Internships provide AISES students with opportunities to explore career options and gain valuable work experience. As the gaming industry continues to be a significant part of Tribal economies across the country, AISES is thrilled to work with BMM in their efforts to connect students with exciting opportunities in the technical workforce."
