Texas Internship Challenge

Texas’ Tri-Agency partners have announced the “Texas Internship Challenge,” a new statewide campaign to increase and promote internships for students in Texas.  The Texas Internship Challenge is a joint partnership between the Texas Workforce Commission, Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB), who are promoting the challenge for industry and employer partners to offer paid internships; universities and colleges to promote the campaign and grant academic credit for internship opportunities; and to students to apply for and accept these internships.  TWC, TEA and THECB encourage internship programs as a bridge for students to explore in-demand industries and occupations. Students will benefit from mentoring, career guidance, identification of marketable skills, and learn about high-demand occupations. Employers will benefit by the opportunity to explore candidates for full-time recruitment and leverage the developing skill sets and perspectives of students, while also highlighting careers in their industries.

Employers and students can explore the new internship challenge website, www.txinternshipchallenge.com.
