Continue to follow us on social media and on our website to watch this group of students throughout their 8 week paid internships and on their journeys to full-time employment.
During the internship we are in touch with the students and employers weekly, and more frequently in the first weeks as our interns get settled into their job tasks and training regiments. Many of these internships will lead to full-time employment within the company, for those that don’t we will begin job placement assistance at the completion of the internship.
