SEASIDE — Jan. 31 is the deadline for Astoria, Jewell, Knappa, Seaside and Warrenton High Schools and Clatsop Community College students to apply to the 2019 Clatsop WORKS Paid Summer Internship Program.

The Clatsop WORKS program was developed to provide local students, ages 16 and up, with exposure to professional paid internship opportunities in Clatsop County, with the goals of community building, economic development, promoting local opportunities and retaining local talent.

Paid internships will begin in late June 2019, and will last from 8-10 weeks, depending on the employer. For interns, the goals of this program are as follows: to help build job application, resume and interview skills; develop work ethic and professionalism; develop career readiness and technical skills; and to introduce them to local opportunities in Clatsop County.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit www.clatsopworks.com to learn more about the program and speak to their students about this excellent opportunity.

Any student who is 16 years of age or higher, and is enrolled at one of the five Clatsop County High schools, and/or Clatsop Community college, is encouraged to apply. Applications are online, and the deadline is January 31st, 2019. Applications are available at www.clatsopworks.com. Students can also email Internship Program coordinator Anna Stamper at astamper@clatsopcc.edu for the application link or for more information, or call her office directly at 503-338-2507.

All applicants will be invited to attend a resume workshop in early February at Clatsop Community College. Selected Interns will complete the full time, 8-10 week paid summer internship (minimum wage or higher). The Clatsop WORKS Interns will also attend seven professional development workshops to learn about various professional topics and tour the facilities, opening doors to even more opportunities in Clatsop County.

The Clatsop WORKS program has been very successful, thanks to the outstanding partnership between our schools and our local business community. It is truly an example of what makes Clatsop County such a great place to live. We are looking forward to another successful summer. Let’s get to work!
