Lincoln County industries offer summer internship opportunities to local students

Lincoln County – The Industrial Manager’s Association of Lincoln County is again encouraging college students from Lincoln County to spend their summer working as an intern with a local participating manufacturer. The time spent working on an internship will be focused on projects, problems and processes to encourage work experiences, build resumes and develop a local talent pool.  The Industrial Manager’s Association is again sponsoring the program to encourage students to return to Lincoln County upon graduation and invest themselves in their home community.


To qualify for the program, any current student, who has Lincoln County residency and finished at least the sophomore year of college or the first year of community college, is eligible to submit a cover letter and resume for consideration. Lincoln Economic Development Association will act as a clearing house for the summer program candidates.  Applicant’s resumes will be distributed to participating businesses for consideration. If selected for the interview process, contact will be made directly by the interested company and the candidate will be sent through the hiring process. Summer employment dates will be determined by the individual company and student. Internships are not guaranteed to all who submit a resume.


Please submit resumes with cover letter to kara@lincolneda.org. Deadline to apply for summer work opportunities is April 15th, 2015. For additional information, call Kara Brown at Lincoln Economic Development Association. 704-732-1511, ext. 2.
