Roosevelt County Summer Internship Program Seeking Student Applicants
Portales, NM - Roosevelt County is hosting a Summer Internship Program for local high school students in partnership with the NM Public Education Dept. All NM Counties were afforded the opportunity to apply for funding through this new program which started last year, and Roosevelt County was excited to receive an award. Roosevelt County is seeking student applicants. Candidates for the grant funded internship must be 16-18 years old (or 15 years old who have a valid work permit) and residents of Roosevelt County. These interns will be employed 20 hours per week at $12.00 per hour for 8 weeks.
“We are excited to host our Summer Intern program to help the youth of Roosevelt County. The program will allow them to gain valuable knowledge and experience working with government agencies and local businesses” stated HR Coordinator Shawn Andrus. “We encourage eligible students to take part in this opportunity as we continue to build this program!”
Roosevelt County was awarded funding for up to 50 students. These students will be placed at various entities within Roosevelt County that have signed up to host a student intern. These entities would provide these students real world, on-the-job experience to aid them in gaining employable skills and knowledge to aid them as they prepare to enter the workforce.
