Backpacks to Briefcases (paid internships)

Mountain Area Workforce Development Board announces Backpacks to Briefcases, a paid internship program for recent college graduates who are unemployed or underemployed.

If you know of recent college graduates who would like to participate or if you know of local businesses who would like to host the internships, contact Nathan Ramsey at nathan@landofsky.org. The cost of the internships are paid for by the Mountain Area Workforce Development Board and there is no obligation for the host business to offer employment following the internship.

The purpose of Backpacks to Briefcases is to retain talent in our region so recent college graduates will not have to move away to find suitable employment.
