Why participate in an internship? Because it offers benefits for employers and students alike!
Hosting an internship helps businesses build a skilled and experienced workforce, and 73% of interns are offered a full-time position, according to the Texas Workforce Commission. That’s why we’re inviting employers and Texas youth to Meet the Challenge and participate in the Texas Internship Challenge!
The Texas Internship Challenge is a recommendation from the Texas Workforce Commission, Texas Education Agency and Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to the Governor’s Office, as part of the Tri-Agency Initiative to challenge industry and employer partners to offer more paid internships for Texas students.
Employers can post internships, and students can apply for them at TXInternshipChallenge.com. This free website offers access to thousands of internship postings around Texas. TXInternshipChallenge.com is designed to meet accessibility guidelines, offers veterans’ preference hiring, and supports technical as well as non-technical positions.
