How do I find an intern?
There are two ways to find a suitable candidate for your internship:
- Submit an Opening - Filling out this form in no way obligates you to employ an intern. The Chamber will compile the information on internships received from employers and distribute to colleges and universities and students (through career offices, career fairs and via the internet). Students interested in your internship should submit their resumes to you. Contact any students you are interested in employing as an intern and follow your normal hiring procedures.
- Request a copy of the “Resume File” from the Chamber. Students may have submitted a resume to the “Resume File” and not contacted you directly. If you are still searching for the right candidate, you might find an intern through this method.
