Becoming an Intern

Interns who successfully complete Project SEARCH see many lifelong benefits:

  • Confidence in their abilities to learn job skills and become a self-advocate
  • A guided transition from student life to working adult life with lifelong skills
  • Opportunities to learn what they want (and realize what they don’t want) in a prospective job
  • Increased self-esteem, work ethic and relationship-building skills
  • A brighter outlook to be a gainfully employed and independent adult
  • Receive the tools needed to set goals and turn experiences into resume and job interview assets

Project SEARCH interns have an 88% success rate of procuring gainful employment after their internship is completed.

For Project SEARCH to succeed, interns need a passion to improve their vocational skills and a desire to work. Individuals must apply for the program, and have appropriate hygiene, some communication skills and the determination to learn new employability skills.
