I’d like an internship this summer. What are the requirements to apply?

High school students interested in having an internship this summer must be 16-19 years old by June 1, 2023 and attending an area school.

How long is the internship?

Internships are 6 weeks long from June 19 – July 28, 2023. However, some employers may determine a longer internship depending on availability.

Why do I need an internship? What can an internship offer me?

Internships can offer you networking, where you can meet people who can assist you in your career or college plans. Networking also helps develop business connections that can lead to employment.

Internships also can help with resume building and skills development. You can develop marketable skills like communication and teamwork. An internship will help you learn about and develop skills that can help you succeed in both college and career.

Internships provide meaningful real-work experience that can help in building stronger college and career pathways.

Where do I apply for internships?

Our internship platform where you can apply for jobs is called Greenlight. To register a profile on Greenlight, you’ll need a referral code. We’ve shared referral codes with your CTE coordinators- see here for your district’s point of contact [insert link to page with district contact]. Please reach out to your district’s point of contact and request a code.
Register on Greenlight:
Please ensure that when you register, you select ‘I have a referral code’ from the drop-down menu.

How much will I be paid?

We recommend that employers pay our interns a minimum of $11.50 per hour. However, there may be some employers that can pay more. Please review the job descriptions, as some employers list the hourly salary there.

How will my employer pay me?

Most employers pay through direct deposit, so we recommend you have checking account. The pay dates, amount of pay, etc. are specific to each employer so you will want to discuss this with them prior to the start of your internship. Employers will typically go over this information when you are hired or at an orientation prior to your start date.

Will transportation be provided?

For interns from San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD) and Edgewood Independent School District (EISD), we’ll be providing transportation to job placement.

What will be expected of me as an intern?

SA WORX will provide interns a guidebook of the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of internships. During our orientation, we’ll have an in-depth discussion about what your internship activities will be. Interns will be expected to work at least 20 hours a week for 6 weeks.
