    What is an Internship?

    • An internship is a workplace experience, like a job, which can help you grow and learn about careers you might want to pursue. An internship will have a position description, several learning objectives, as well as start and end dates.
    • An internship can be full or part-time, paid or unpaid, and offered during the school year or summer. If a student wants to earn high school credit for an internship, a parent or legal guardian will need to give written permission for a student to participate, and Cindy Jamieson will visit the site to help make sure all policies are followed. After the paperwork is completed, 180 hours are required to earn .5 CTE credit per semester.
    • Please remember you are not guaranteed an internship but you are encouraged to apply and have your resume and cover letter ready at all times.
