Florida’s CareerSource Pasco Hernando, an equal opportunity program linking potential workforce personnel with providers in the Hernando, Florida area, recently launched a website to facilitate and support internship position fulfillment in Pasco and Hernando counties.
Residents with verified occupational classroom skills in need of hands-on work experience can now seek internship opportunities through the organization’s website at https://pascohernandointern.com/. Depending on the individual’s abilities and qualifications, employers can seek reimbursement for up to 80 percent of the intern’s wages.
Internships provide a low-risk, low-pressure and efficient way for companies to assess the feasibility of hiring someone on a more permanent basis once they have successfully oriented to the business environment and demonstrated their skills and work habits.
Hiring someone as an intern is the most effective way to evaluate their potential as a full-time employee, CareerSource Pasco Hernando states. While permanent employment is not a guaranteed outcome, serving an internship benefits all parties by providing valuable experience for interns and in-kind service to potential employers.
The system works not only for students, youth and volunteers but also for veterans desiring postsecondary education, as CareerSource Pasco Hernando works with local firms to coordinate GI Bill benefits.
With offices in Spring Hill, New Port Richey and Dade City, CareerSource Pasco Hernando stands ready to connect potential partners in support of Florida’s economy.
