Are you interested in paid work giving you experience in your field of study? The Worthington Foundation has an internship program we have created for our scholars.
We’re working with a number of employers* who are looking for smart, hard-working summer employees.
Here’s how it works:
WE – contact potential employers and seek their interest in Worthington scholar interns.
YOU – fill out the INTERN INTEREST FORM (email email@example.com for a copy) and return it to us.
WE – send your application to the internship opportunities whose positions match your areas of interest. We advise you which businesses have received your information; you contact them for an interview.
EMPLOYERS – Interview and negotiate the terms directly with the employer.
There are still a few positions left. And…best of all…some of our graduates have been hired by the companies where they interned!
*Employers include the Samoset Resort, Owls Head Transportion Museum, Penobscot Bay YMCA, and many more.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
