SYP acts as your bridge to potential employers by facilitating the initial connection. Employers are responsible for conducting interviews, background checks, and selecting interns using their standard in-house selection process. Likewise, interns are encouraged to independently research businesses and ultimately determine if the business aligns with their goals and aspirations as well as providing a comfortable working environment.
The SYP Internship Program is scheduled to launch in the summer of 2024, offering you the chance to gain valuable experience during the summer months and beyond.
Internship applications open on March 15, 2024 with the application deadline set for April 15. Employers will interview qualified candidates and report accepted interns to the SYP by May 15.
It is at the discretion of the employers to offer paid or unpaid internships, and this information will be made available prior to the application process.
