What will I be doing during my internship?
There is no way to say exactly what you will be doing since students will be matched to different employers across the eight industry sectors we partner with. The objective is for students to have the opportunity to apply the CTE skills and information gained in the classroom and learn from professionals in their industry. Internships will be either virtual or in person for selected industries and students should expect to have tasks assigned to them, attend meetings, and meet various staff members from the organization.
Where will I be placed?
There is no way to tell you beforehand because we work with hundreds of students and employers, but the hope is that you will be matched with an incredible employer!
