HOW AN INTERNSHIP BENEFITS AN EMPLOYER

““Employers who provide internships are investing in their future workforce and gaining an enthusiastic employee.””
- Bret Murphy, Dean College of Business and Technology

WHY AN INTERNSHIP?

“Internships improve our program because they give our students the opportunity to get more practical experience than what they can access in the class and lab facility.”
- Tom Bruns, Instructor Industrial Millwright Technology

 

Student Internship Program.

GBC Student Internship Program

GBC Shop Students.
Student internships provide work-based learning opportunities where skills and knowledge gained in coursework is applied in work environments related to specific career fields. This new program, developed in collaboration with the TAACCCT (Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training) grant program, will be implemented in the 2016-217 academic year.

This program is available for students enrolled in these Career and Technical Education program: Industrial Millwright Technology, Welding Technology, Instrumentation, Electrical Systems Technology or Diesel Technology.

We are actively seeking employer partners for this new program. Employer partners have the opportunity to build relationships with, and train, potential future employees. Employer partners positively influence student interns as they learn valuable work skills in a real-world environment, which develops and strengthens our local workforce and economy.

What are Student Internships?

Student internships provide work-based learning opportunities where skills and knowledge gained in coursework is applied in work environments related to specific career fields. View our brochure.

Student interns learn from highly-skilled, highly-experienced individuals while improving skills and increasing practical knowledge.

Employer partners provide student internships for a set length of time, typically, during the school /academic year. Employer partners help students identify strengths and areas of improvement to target during the internship.
Each student internship is unique. The length, hours worked, and wage paid to the student intern is determined by the employer partner. View our brochure.

Student interns are paid through the employer, or, a staffing agency chosen by the employer partner. Staffing agencies may require additional training, drug and alcohol screening or a background check.
