Jersey City Summer Internship Internship



Jersey City Summer Internship 

by Akosua Asante

               The Jersey City Summer Internship program is open to all Jersey City students who are juniors in high school and are attending Jersey City Public Schools, Charter Schools, or Hudson County Schools of Technology. This is a highly competitive program because it places students in paid work-based learning opportunities that interest them. The opportunity to be in a program like this in high school is very rare and there are many benefits. For example, the students who are involved in this program are placed in a six-week paid internship that opens up many professional pathways, academic credit and developing skills in a professional setting. There is an application process that students need to go through which includes an online application, individual interviews, internship placements, and an orientation. Last year at M.E.T.S Charter School, two teachers, Ms. Casella and Ms. Zamora, worked with students to help them complete the application process. They helped with resume workshops and guided them through mock interviews to increase their chances of getting accepted into the program. The students, Stanley Nunez, Mariah Laboy, Amechelle Leander, Noah Murgas, and Nourhan Fathy were accepted and completed this program over the summer. Mariah Laboy and Amechelle Leander were interviewed about the process.
