IMA Summer Internships

Wayne Howard
Reporter


Most likely you have seen Facebook posts touting trade school education as compared to four-year college.  It is true that many of the best-paying jobs are now being done by people who have less than a four-year degree.  Their skills were learned in vocational education--at high schools, community colleges and trade schools.  

At Tuesday evening's Lincoln County Board of Education meeting, several community leaders spoke in favor of the expanded CTE program of the school system.  Career and technical education is providing training for positions that students can fill upon graduation from high school.  While some will go on seeking a four-year degree, others will be happy to have the education they need to get a good-paying job.  Even those who do seek more education often do so without the burden of big loans that will burden them for years to come, often starting work while continuing their  schooling.  

John Dancoff of the Lincoln Economic Development Association (LEDA) spoke Tuesday about the Apprenticeship program that the schools and local community colleges are offering.  

Dancoff says another avenue to a succesful career may well be one of the internships that will be available for college students this summer.  "We were limited in the number of internships we were able to do last summer due to COVID restrictions, and a lot of the type of jobs these interns would be shadowing were working remotely. We are hoping to be able to have more available this year.

"Lincoln County manufacturers offer summer internships to local college students. 
The Industrial Manager’s Association (IMA) of Lincoln County is encouraging college students from Lincoln County to spend the summer of 2022 working as an intern with a local participating manufacturer. Internships will focus on projects, problems, and processes to develop related work experiences, build resumes and develop a local talent pool for employment upon graduation.

"To qualify for the program, any current college student who has Lincoln County residency and has finished at least the sophomore year of college or the first year of community college is eligible to submit a cover letter and resume for consideration.

"LEDA will act as a clearinghouse for the summer program candidates.  Applicants' resumes will be distributed to participating businesses for consideration. If selected for the interview process, contact will be made directly by the interested company and the candidate will be sent through the hiring process. Summer employment dates will be determined by the individual company and student. Internships are not guaranteed to all who submit a resume. Those involved in related fields of study are especially encouraged. 

"Past internships have been offered to students studying: electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, finance, accounting, business, economics, international business, and human resources.

"Summer may seem a long time away, but now is a good time to start planning.  Those who are interested should submit a resume with a cover letter to john@lincolneda.org. The deadline to apply for summer work opportunities is April 30th, 2022."

For additional information, call John Dancoff at Lincoln Economic Development Association: 704-732-1511, ext. 2. Due to many industries still having COVID restrictions, the number of available internships may be limited this year!
