Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino today announced an opportunity for college students to gain meaningful work experience through an internship program being offered by the Town for the 2020 summer season. 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 4th through August 12th. Funds have been granted to the Town by the Oyster Bay-North Hempstead-Glen Cove Workforce Development Board.
Supervisor Saladino stated, “Internship opportunities provide students upon graduation an advantage over other job seekers when it comes to work readiness. This new internship program provides an invaluable opportunity for students to receive mentorship and supervision from experienced government professionals.”
This new internship opportunity program offers full-time 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 10, 2020. For more information, please call (516) 624-6425 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
