Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino has announced the return of internship opportunities for college students who are looking to gain meaningful work experience through an internship program being offered by the Town for the 2021 summer season. The program returns this year after being postponed last year due to COVID-19 restrictions and concerns.
“Internship give students an advantage over other job seekers when it comes to work readiness, and I am proud that my administration is able to provide that opportunity for our residents,” Supervisor Saladino said. “This internship program provides an invaluable opportunity for students to receive mentorship and supervision from experienced government professionals, and I am excited and proud to announce that we will be bringing it back after its temporary hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.”
This federally-funded program compensates students at a rate of $15 an hour for work completed within various Town departments. The program will operate June 3rd through August 11th. Funds have been granted to the Town by the Oyster Bay-North Hempstead-Glen Cove Workforce Development Board. This internship program offers college students the ability to gain worksite specific knowledge, learn departmental procedures, assist with general office duties and reports, develop an understanding of worksite specific projects and apply the knowledge gained to benefit the Town of Oyster Bay.
College students interested in internship opportunities must apply by April 23, 2021. Applicants must submit a resume with their application, available at oysterbaytown.com/
