One of the hallmarks of the CAPS experience is the ability to connect with area businesses for authentic experiences. Nothing could be more authentic than a summer internship and that is exactly what Technology Solutions student, Antonio Linhart had at CBOE/BATS.
Antonio will graduate from BVNW in May of 2018. He distinguished himself in the Tech Solutions course as a junior and was selected for the highly sought after summer position at BATS. Each Monday Antonio would be faced with something he’s never done before… a technology to learn or problem to solve… it looked bleak and daunting… and by Thursday morning he would have found and implemented a solution. This is the second summer that CAPS has had a summer intern at CBOE/BATS. Antonio’s mentor Jared Fordham summed up the experience, “This is a win-win program; real world experience for kids, and incremental projects moving forward for the department.”
Bats operates four stock exchanges in the U.S. – BZX Exchange, BYX Exchange, EDGA Exchange, and EDGX Exchange. On February, 28, 2017, Bats was acquired by CBOE Holdings, Inc.
