LHS Partners with MPW Industrial Services to Offer Paid Internships to Current Juniors
We are excited to announce that on Monday, April 11, Lakewood High School and MPW Industrial Services began a program that will offer three paid internship opportunities for the current junior class (Class of 2023) starting in the summer. The internships will expose selected students to different career opportunities at MPW and provide insight into the skills and responsibilities in these roles to help them determine a career path. The internship opportunities being offered are:
- Accounting & Finance – This intern will assist the Accounting & Finance Department with any tasks that need to be completed and will experience a broad range of Accounting & Finance responsibilities through observation and hands-on training.
- Engineering – This intern will assist the Engineering Department with any tasks that need to be completed and will experience a broad range of Engineering responsibilities through observation and hands-on training.
- Fabrication/Skilled Trades – This intern will experience a broad range of exposure to MPW’s Fabrication Department designed to broaden their knowledge and skillset through hands-on training.
The internship selection process will offer an opportunity for students to go through practical resume building, which is an extremely important skill in seeking employment. For the students chosen, it will also provide invaluable interview and real-world working experience that could shape their future in the workforce. We are grateful to MPW for their willingness to partner with us on this unique program, and for their commitment of creating these positions for our students for the next 15 years.
MPW Director of Corporate Human Resources, Jim Tyznik, spoke to Lakewood High School juniors on Monday, April 11, about the internships and process for applying. “We are looking forward to seeing resumes from these talented young people,” said Tyznik. “These internships will be a great way for students to get some experience in a field they are interested in, and possibly validate a career path, also while earning a fair wage. We hope we also find future full-time MPW employees through this program.”
Students wishing to be considered need to submit a resume and reference by April 28, 2022. Internships will begin in June and consist of 12 hours per week for 30 weeks. More information on how to apply for these internships can be obtained from the Lakewood High School guidance office, or by visiting www.lakewoodlocal.k12.oh.us/MPWInternships.aspx
