U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis is passionate about jobs. And it’s great that the Secretary of Labor is not only focused on the unemployment rate for those who have been in the workforce for years, but she’s also doing everything in her power to help the youth of America – our best and our brightest – succeed and land work opportunities.
Writing from The White House Blog today, Secretary Solis urged businesses, non-profits and governments to come together to provide employment opportunities for youth in the summer of 2012. Internships.com is highlighted in the article, and we’re proud to support The White House in this initiative.
In January, President Obama announced the Summer Jobs+ initiative – calling on employers big and small to work with their communities to provide jobs, internships, mentoring opportunities or other life and work skills development for our young people. As a technology partner of the White House in this effort, we’re doing everything we can to create and provide more and more work summer job and internship opportunities for you guys – our future.
So keep searching, and know that not only do we have your back, but the White House does too! We’re in this together. Good luck in your internship search! Employers – you can post your opportunities for free, get started.
