Apprenticeships + Internships
An internship is an opportunity offered by an employer to potential employees, usually undergraduate students, to work at a business for a fixed, limited period of time. Internships may be full or part-time, and are usually offered for the duration of a school semester or during the summer months.

Assistance for businesses to offset the costs of hiring interns includes the Operation Intern program and the availability of an Intern Employment Tax Credit.

Internships provide businesses with a wonderful source of employees in today’s tight labor market. One local employer whose business regularly hires interns called the practice “the best job interview we can get.” Businesses often find that many interns who work for them make ideal permanent employees down the road.
Job Service North Dakota helps businesses and students connect. In addition to posting permanent job openings, businesses also post internships they offer. Visit jobsnd.com to find statewide internship opportunities posted by area businesses or to register.
