CARMEL, N.Y. -- Putnam County Government is offering high school, college and graduate school students the opportunity to apply for paid and unpaid summer internship opportunities throughout its many departments during the summer of 2017.
The initiative is part of the Putnam Invests in Leaders of Tomorrow (PILOT) program, a concept introduced by County Executive MaryEllen Odell in 2013.
The program is supported by the Putnam County Legislature.
“The PILOT program is one of the best professional resources offered to Putnam County Youth,” Odell said. “It is a program that I take tremendous pride in. I recommend students to apply, not only to gain real-world experience, but to learn more about the county in which they live.”
Eligible participants must be Putnam County residents who are graduate, college, or high school students in their junior or senior year.
Applicants must be at least 16 years of age. For those in college, a GPA of 3.0 or higher is recommended.
The 2017 program will run from May through August, depending on student availability.
Work schedules typically consist of 28 hours a week, and will be coordinated with department supervisors. The application deadline is Friday, Jan. 20, 2017.
