Corporation aims to hire more than 400 interns
In March, the nation’s unemployment rate fell from 8.3 percent to 8.2 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics recently announced. Although this was a minor decrease, current and prospective Christian university students should view the fact that 120,000 jobs were created as welcome news.
As more positions are created, those studying at Christian colleges may find that they are among some of the nation’s most employable individuals.
For instance, Siemens Corporation recently issued a press release that announced the organization is looking to fill more than 400 internship positions across multiple sectors. College-level students who have an interest in pursuing careers in the science, technology, engineering and math sectors are welcome to apply for openings in Siemens’ Summer Intern Program.
“Siemens is committed to developing talent, both for our existing employees and by identifying and nurturing new entry level talent,” said Mike Panigel, chief human resources officer for Siemens in the Americas.
Toward the end of the program, those considered to be top-performing interns are recruited as full-time Siemens employees. Overall, this opportunity serves as an example of how spending time as an intern during one’s college career may open the door to improved post-graduation career prospects.
