Good morning! I am pleased to announce we will again have the opportunity to offer the Summer Internship Program beginning in May of 2014. The primary goal of this program is to introduce outstanding students to Purdue Extension as a potential career, and in turn develop our own subset of new employees. Preference is given to college Juniors or Seniors who would be eligible for graduate school admission, or graduate students already enrolled. We will work to place interns in a location near their home (or campus if they are remaining local during the summer). Our desire is to place students in an office that will allow them to obtain a well-rounded Extension experience in all program areas, but prefer not to place them in their home county.
If you have candidates in mind who may be interested in learning more about Purdue Extension, and the work we do, please feel free to pass along the attached application document, or have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Michelle Ballard at email@example.com.
The deadline for submitting applications for the Summer 2014 Internship is Friday, October 25th. Applications will be reviewed and interviews scheduled for November.
