heri Thompson, of EBSCO Industries, writes to inform us of an unexpected internship opening. It is for this summer and they would like to fill it ASAP. Starting date is late May.
According to Sheri, “The candidate who originally accepted the position as a graduate intern position has since obtained permanent full-time employment, so our position is open again at a very late date.”
Hey, sometimes these things happen. But, it offers a great opportunity for one enterprising and industrious student. Hmm? Does that describe you?
And … it is a paid internship. Experience and dollars. Could you possibly ask for more? EBSCO is truly a global corporation and well-worth considering for an internship.
So, if you are interested …
