Irving Cares is now interviewing full-time college
students for a paid summer internship in our Employment Services Program. The
intern’s responsibilities will include assessing employment and educational
needs, referring to the appropriate organizations for training and resources,
designing/conducting a Job Search Seminar, and marketing the Employment
Services Program in the community.
The internship is made
possible through a grant to Irving Cares from the ExxonMobil
Foundation. Each year, the ExxonMobil Community Summer
Jobs Program provides full-time college students with an eight-week paid
internship to gain experience in a wide range of nonprofit community
organizations, including Irving Cares.
“Irving Cares is
honored to be selected to hire an intern again this year. We have had some
fantastic interns through this program, working in all parts of our agency.
This year’s placement includes direct client contact, which helps us serve more
clients this summer, as well as giving the intern some solid job skills for his
future,” said Irving Cares CEO Teddie Story.
Eligible students must
be an undergraduate returning to college as a
full-time (minimum 12 credit hours per semester) sophomore, junior or senior
student in the fall of 2012. The dates of
the internship are June 4, 2012 until July 27, 2012. Interested college students should contact
Mary Shelton at 972-721-9181, ext. 207 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
