LINCOLNTON, N.C. - College students from Lincoln County have an opportunity again this year to spend their summer working as an intern with local manufacturers while focusing on projects, problems and processes to encourage work experiences, build resumes and develop a local talent pool.

The Industrial Manager’s Association is again sponsoring the program to encourage students to return to Lincoln County upon graduation and invest themselves in their home community. For anyone who is not familiar, the Industrial Managers Association of Lincoln County (IMA) is an active membership of industry leaders who seek to develop a strong alliance among existing industries, the education system and elected officials by providing information and tools to support the needs of manufacturing throughout Lincoln County.

The summer internship program, launched in 2012, provides manufacturing companies valuable service from eager participants while providing hands-on experience to the students, which is invaluable when searching for a full-time position. The intern initiative is another chance to showcase Lincoln County businesses and the opportunities available here.

Ten or more students have been chosen each year for participation in the program. All say that it was a valuable experience; some have continued into full-time jobs after graduation at the companies with whom they interned.

“This program is becoming more important than ever,” explained John Dancoff with the Lincoln Economic Development Association (LEDA). “Our industries are facing employment challenges on every level. The target for this particular program are the more specific and advanced positions. I am aware of instances the search for a needed professional has taken several years to fill and often has required recruiting from out of state. With the quality of our local education system, community colleges and the great university system of North Carolina, we want to develop this talent and keep it here.”

To qualify for the program, any current student who has Lincoln County residency and finished at least the sophomore year of college or is near completion of an associate degree is eligible to submit a cover letter and resume for consideration. LEDA will act as a clearing house for the summer program candidates. Applicants' resumes will be distributed to participating businesses for consideration. If selected for the interview process, contact will be made directly by the interested company and the candidate will be sent through the hiring process. Summer employment dates will be determined by the individual company and student.

Those who are interested in the program should submit resumes with a cover letter to john@lincolneda.org. Deadline to apply for summer work opportunities is April 20th. For additional information, call Kara Brown at Lincoln Economic Development Association. 704-732-1511, ext. 2.

The Lincoln Economic Development Association (LEDA) is a private, non-profit corporation charged with facilitating industrial, office and commercial development in Lincolnton and Lincoln County. Through its public-private partnership, the City of Lincolnton, Lincoln County, private citizens and the business community have come together to pursue well-balanced, quality growth for the community.
