The WV Ready Internship Program provides West Virginia High School students with a 4 week, paid summer internship experience with a WV business. In addition to $10/hour salary, all interns will receive three hours of Community and Technical College credit upon completion.

Thank you for your interest in the WV Ready Summer Internship program.  The application period is now closed.

 The Education Alliance is moving forward with our business partners to screen and identify candidates via phone interviews.  Due to the Coronavirus crisis there may be some delays, however it is important for all applicants to monitor your email and social media accounts, in order to respond to any updates/interview requests.

Internship Update

The Education Alliance is working hard to follow CDC guidelines regarding CoVID-19 and to implement contingency plans for our programs. We appreciate your patience during this difficult time.

Our team has put a lot of thought and consideration into the status and next steps for the Summer Internships program. Because of the remote nature of the existing interview process, we plan to continue the interview process for the summer internships.

Timeline:

Week of March 23rd: The Education Alliance begins first round of screening.

April 6th: The Education Alliance will provide each business with a list of applicants for phone interviews.

April 6th - May 1st: Deadline for all businesses to conduct their interviews.

May 1st: Interns selected and notified.

May 28th: Student Training scheduled.

Please note: Depending on how the Coronavirus requirements continue to unfold, we will look to keep the internship period for June 1st - 26th. If the Student Training gets pushed back, we are open to rescheduling the Summer Internships for July.

 

Continue to check our website for updates to our planned programming should the Coronavirus still be of concern throughout the summer.

The WV Ready Summer Internship Program was amazing. The best part of the program was getting to experience multiple types of work and learning what it is like to perform in those fields. Additionally, getting information from people on what is required to begin work in those fields was very helpful.
