Saladino Announces Paid TOB College Internships
by Nolan Cleary
Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino announced that college internships for students seeking extra work opportunities will return. The internship opportunities will be offered to students throughout the Summer 2022 season.
The program, which is funded by the federal government, pays college students $18 an hour. Students who accept the internship are expected to work 19.5 hours per week. The program seeks to allow college students to develop more experience in professional workspace environments.
“Internships give students an advantage over other job seekers when it comes to work readiness, and I am proud that the Town will once again provide that opportunity for our residents,” Saladino said. “This internship program provides an invaluable opportunity for students to receive mentorship and supervision from experienced government professionals.”
The Oyster Bay-North Hempstead-Glen Cove Workforce Development Board helped to provide funds for the initiative. The internship will run from June 2 to August 10.
