Getting students to and through college.

Summer 2019 Interns

Higher Edge, Inc. is seeking Summer 2019 paid internships
for our Success Program college students!

We begin working with students admitted into our College Access Program their senior year of high school. Our Success Program college students are pursuing degrees in a variety of fields, are succeeding academically and many have taken on leadership roles at their respective colleges. What better way to support and encourage these students to return to our Eastern Connecticut workforce after graduation than to give them an opportunity to gain skills from a local business while meeting your need for a summer intern?

Higher Edge will market, email and gather resumes for your business’ open summer positions. You select the candidates to interview and we will schedule your interview – preferably before May 1st. If you are ready now to meet prospective summer intern candidates and/or would like to provide information to students about your company, our Success Program will be hosting five “Winter Summits” in early 2019.

“My college experience has honestly been a huge roller-coaster ride. From having to overcome the academic struggles of transitioning from a public high school into a private university and, so much more. I have grown in ways that I never would have imagined. I have also accomplished many things that were not even a thought years ago, such as earning a paid-internship with a start-up company in Boston. I have learned to keep an open perspective with life. In addition, to never let my temporary obstacles determine the fate of my future. I am proud to say that I will be a Bentley University alumnus in May of 2019. This is only the beginning of my journey, so stay tuned. I want my life to be a living example that anything is possible and that it is never too late to turn your life around for the better.”

– Naseef McCray, Bentley University ’19
