Internships

Internship Program for Juniors & Seniors

Internship is a course opportunity for students to explore a Career of their choice. Students who have completed one or more job shadows and meet graduation requirements can request to be placed with a local business to apply hands-on employment skills. This is a great way to learn more about a business, a trade, or a career path. 


Students will submit a digital application in which a resume is required. It is encouraged but not required that the student find their placement. We will make every effort, but placements are not guaranteed. Students are not allowed to be placed with family members.


Requirements during the Internship:

  • Parents and students must attend a mandatory orientation meeting prior to the placement.
  • Students must attend the workplace each day that the course is offered.
  • Set goals and expectations with the business partner and agreements of both school and business partners.
  • Communicate on a regular basis with Post-secondary coordinator (physically or via email).
  • Participate in regularly scheduled workshops to enhance employment and 21st century skills. These may include Career Activities in Naviance, Resume writing, Mock Interviews, Business luncheons, etc.
  • Keep a physical daily log of hours worked and complete weekly professional reflection logs.
  • All interns will complete a digital portfolio while enrolled to enhance their IPS and Post-secondary options such as applications, scholarships, and career applications.
  • Completion of a final presentation at the end of each semester.

 

Many businesses support the Career and Technical Education department at Newton High School in a variety of ways. With this business support, students are able to learn about career choices and make better career and college decisions. Students can access potential internship partners through Naviance.
