List your Internship Opportunities
As part of Mayor Alvin Brown’s emphasis on jobs and support to the military, the Jacksonville Military Veterans Coalition (JMVC) was formed. The JMVC is committed to honoring military veterans and currently serving members of the National Guard and Reserve by facilitating career, business, and education opportunities in Jacksonville. Our Coalition works with military organizations, veterans groups, industry associations, governmental entities, and Jacksonville businesses to build awareness and understanding of how these skills and cultural attributes make military veterans outstanding employees.
Many Jacksonville Businesses have internship programs that provide unique opportunities for participants to gain valuable experience in the workplace. Internships provide benefits to both interns and the organizations hosting the intern. There are many benefits to completing an internship, including the development of strong teamwork skills balanced with the excercise of individual responsibility, the opportunity to experiment with jobs that match academic and personal interests and the chance to dvelop industry-specific abilities. internships also increase the likelihood of building professional networking contacts and mentoring relationships. Internships help students become viable, experienced job applicants when seeking employment after graduation. In fact, many employers consider internship experience in the hiring process, and often look to their own interns as the best potential candidates for full-time positions.
