Go Greenville Internship Program

 

Application Deadline  2015 (TBA)

Program Description

The Go Greenville Internship is designed to encourage current college juniors and seniors who graduated from a Greenville high school to gain real-world experience through interning with a Greenville area business. Offering a dynamic and hands-on introduction to the daily operations of a Greenville area business, the Go Greenville program pairs each intern with a company that matches his/her field of study. Interns will work closely with a supervisor on ongoing projects and responsibilities.

Training is integral to the interns’ experience. In addition to developing practical work skills, interns will participate in a leadership cohort with other Go Greenville interns. This cohort will meet throughout the 10 week program to develop leadership skills and attend guest speaker sessions with Greenville area professionals.

This program is offered by the City of Greenville in partnership with the sponsor businesses of Greenville.
