Students ask us, “Why should I pursue an internship?” SHIP’s response is, “You’ll never know what type of job you want in life if you can’t go out and try it.”
SHIP offers market rate wages and a full-time work week (32 hours or more) of employment in a 14-week paid internship program. Dormitory style housing is also available for qualifying students. Career Paths of interest will support and reinforce curriculum credits or non-credited programs.
Why not work in a fun and exciting place? SHIP business partners offer a great place to work and provide a diverse range of internship opportunities.
Students will be paid to work as well as build their resume skills and experience within their Career Path of interest. Sevier County is a thriving $4 billion Hospitality & Tourism industry in East Tennessee located near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
