Summer is just around the corner and with the employment market still tight, many high school and college students won’t be finding jobs this year. A full summer of lazing by the pool or playing video games may sound like nirvana to your teen, but as parents, we know this is not the way to build an impressive resume or instill a strong work ethic.
The solution? An internship! There are many wonderful internships still available throughout Delaware that will provide students with real world experience in their chosen field or introduce them to a field they’ve been considering. An internship can be a valuable resume builder and college students can often earn college credit, too!
Here are a few resources to help you and your student find the internship that’s right for them.
