SPONSOR AN INTERN AT YOUR WORKPLACE
Businesses and organizations of every size are encouraged to provide a paid summer internship for at least one intern. Internships, running 12 to 40 hours per week and paying a minimum of $12 per hour, can be virtual or on-site and should provide a real-life experience in the workplace where the student performs meaningful work assignments, shadows executives, observes company operations, and has personal contact with managers and executives regarding future career paths in the industry. Employers will be able to interview students – who they have pre-selected by resume and interview video – during the program’s Job Fair on Wednesday, May 3. If an employer is not able to attend the Job Fair or signs up after May 3, an alternative intern selection process will be provided.
SPONSOR AN INTERN AT A NONPROFIT
Businesses and individuals can also underwrite an intern to work at a nonprofit. This is a wonderful option for organizations unable to sponsor an intern at their place of business or for those wanting to support a local nonprofit. Sponsors may choose the nonprofit they would like to support from RMSIP’s list of nonprofits who have applied and are seeking sponsorship.
BECOME A PROGRAM SPONSOR
The program is seeking sponsors to underwrite student Workforce Skills and intern Work-Readiness Trainings, the Job Fair, Community Service Day, Celebration Luncheon, and other special intern enrichment programs and events. Program sponsorships begin at $2,500 and include various sponsor benefits.
The program is currently recruiting business professionals to assist on-site or virtually with RMSIP Workforce Skills Trainings. Volunteers are needed to help coach and critique students in the areas of professional etiquette and dress, resume development, interview preparation/mock interviews, and business communication.
