(LAKE MARY, Fla.) Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) is excited to announce the SCPS 2017 Spring Internship Expo, which is expected to draw rising high school juniors and seniors interested in securing one of more than 100 internship positions that will be offered by over 50 regional employers. This event will take place on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at Noah’s Event Venue (720 Currency Circle, Lake Mary, FL 32746).
Business partners that will be recruiting SCPS student interns include; Seminole Harley Davidson, Kobe Japanese Steakhouse, CFE Federal Credit Union and Faro Technologies. There are also a variety of non-profit organizations in attendance, including Christian HELP Foundation, Florida Department of Health and the Seminole County Public Library. Students will have access to paid and unpaid experiences in fields such as information technology (IT), healthcare, accounting, finance, sales, marketing, construction, engineering, hospitality, education, and many more. Once they have secured an internship, students will work at least 133 hours to earn one high school credit.
This event is part of the SCPS Education Pathways (ePathways) initiative, which seeks to provide students with customized learning experiences that prepare them for the dynamics of today’s fast-paced economy. Workplace learning opportunities empower students to augment their classroom education by applying their skills, passions, and interests to authentic employment experiences. “We are excited to provide students with opportunities to gain applicable work experience in the industries they are interested in while still in high school. This gives them a competitive edge and helps them learn more about a potential career field,” said Dr. Walt Griffin, Superintendent, SCPS. Through the facilitation of internships, employers provide access to elements of work that are not readily available to entry-level employees.
