CASY & MSCCN partnered with Ed4online to create an internship for the Employment Specialist and Recruiter Connect Assistant Career Corps Volunteers that includes training, hands on work experience, and a Human Resource (HR) management course.
The candidates selected for this internship will begin the program with a 3-week training on best practices in employment sourcing, screening, and placement with an emphasis on working with service members, veterans, and military family members. After the training, interns will begin hands on instruction as they volunteer directly within the Employment Specialist or Recruiter Connect departments of the organization. The hands-on portion of the program lasts for a period of 6 months during which they will begin the HR management course described below. The purpose of hands on training while taking the course is to provide an opportunity for the interns to apply the knowledge from the course in their work with job seekers and recruiters from different companies. The interns will be part of the Gateway Department for 3 months and in the last 2 months of the internship they will transfer to the Recruiter Connect Department.
