Approximately 50 interns are being hired this summer by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOL) for a six-week, project-based job opportunity.
Applications are being accepted until April 5 for a six-week, project-based job opportunity scheduled to run from June 26 to Aug. 4. To qualify for the program, applicants must be current postsecondary students during the internship period. The rate of pay is $23.14 per hour.
During the Intern Learning Experience for Achievement and Development — iLEAD — interns will be involved in research, developing action plans, and more. A supervisor will act as a mentor to the interns and provide guidance throughout the program.
Last year, NJDOL hosted 62 interns, and several continued to work for the department in either full-time or part-time positions.
Labor Commissioner Robert Asaro-Angelo said this is a chance for students to get hands-on experience in the public sector.
“Through this program, our interns will benefit from the decades of knowledge shared by their mentors, while honing their purpose and passion to guide them in the next steps of their careers,” he said.
Completed application packets and required attachments must be submitted to NJDOLInterns@dol.nj.gov with “Internship ID #202303” in the subject line of the email. Interested applicants can click here for more information.
