Applications Open for Summer Internship Program

PLANO ISD HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS CAN APPLY THROUGH MARCH 1

Qualifying Plano ISD sophomores and juniors can apply now through March 1 for the Plano Mayor’s Summer Internship Program.

Presented by Capital One, the competitive “learn-and-earn” program connects students from Plano’s award-winning and nationally recognized school district with some of the area’s top corporations and nonprofits.

The eight-week paid internship program—offering remote and on-site placements, or a combination of both—runs June 7-July 30 (although some start dates are flexible).

To qualify, students must complete an online application, which includes two short essays. Applicants must: 

  • be a sophomore or junior at a Plano ISD high school
  • have a cumulative 3.0 GPA (minimum) and solid attendance record
  • be 16 years of age by June 7, 2021
  • be eligible to work in the United States
  • be able to work the entire eight weeks of the internship from June 7-July 30 (or dates determined by the employer).

Students earn a minimum of $10 per hour working 20-40 hours per week. Only the first 400 applications will be accepted, so students are encouraged to apply early to avoid being waitlisted.

In addition, students must attend the rigorous Intern Prep virtual event on Saturday, March 20 which will focus on resume development, interviewing, business communication, professional dress and personal goal planning in order to be eligible for the Job Fair on Thursday, April 22, which is expected to attract dozens of employers.

Selected students will receive a formal job offer via email in May. If chosen, students will then complete two days of Intern Enrichment and Orientation June 2-3, when business soft skills, networking, team building and work-readiness topics will be addressed.
