About

Melwood interns gain invaluable skills that will take them a long way in achieving their career aspirations.

Melwood’s Internship Program was designed to facilitate a mutually beneficial opportunity to the student and the organization. Our interns assist our staff with a number of projects, which improves productivity by allowing employees the time to accomplish higher-level, strategic initiatives where their attention and expertise is much better served. Ultimately, the program helps to accomplish several immediate objectives that aid in organizational workflow. Interns benefit from the program in many ways as well. They gain on-the-job experience, develop interpersonal skills, make connections, strengthen their resumes, and assess their career interest and abilities. Offering a paid internship is particularly beneficial, helping students enhance their resume with marketable skills while earning the extra dollars they may need to sustain their lifestyle.
