COLLEGE INTERNS WANTED TO WORK WITH FIRST ROBOTICS TEAMS!
A Message from the Idaho Out-of School Network. Please contact Marie if you or someone you know is interested:
Almost 6 weeks ago, we posted an opportunity for a paid college internship (working with FIRST robotics teams), and we need applications! I have asked our HR team to follow up with the colleges/universities we posted to (U of I, BSU, ISU, BYU Idaho, Eastern Tech, CWI, CSI, NNU and NIC) to ensure it is posted. It is on our webpage too (link here).
Could you please help spread the word too? Surely with our networks we know of a college student that could use an extra $2,000 this semester, and would enjoy working with FIRST robotics teams. Students can be placed out of their college location, and this opportunity can be for this semester and/or next. Hope you can help, thank you so much!
Check out out new name!
