Jackson Prep Summer Internship Program

The Jackson Prep Career Connection Summer Internship Program, implemented by the Prep Alumni Council and the College Counseling Office, provides juniors with the opportunity for a summer internship experience that will explore and develop specific career interests. Students will be involved in the day-to-day tasks of a company or professional organization, thereby providing real world experience for making college and career decisions.

Career Connection Selection Process for Students

Career Connection is a competitive experience.  Selection is based on a completed application, resume’, and faculty approval.  A selection committee will match the most qualified candidates with supervisors for each specific internship.  The supervisor may then interview the candidate to determine if he/she is an acceptable match and if so, to set the date for the internship.  An evaluation of the experience will be completed by both the organization and the intern at the end of the program.
