NYMTC Will Offer Paid Internships
The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council will offer paid internships to high school and college students, Senator Malcolm A. Smith announced Wednesday.
A number of positions are available in multiple locations throughout the year, open to high school and college students. Interns will earn an $11.54 per hour salary for completing an 18-hour week.
"This internship is a terrific way to gain valuable, real-world experience while making a real salary," Smith noted. "This can be an important first step for high school and college students interested in entering the field of transportation," he added.
The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) is a group of governments and transportation providers, serving as the metropolitan planning organization for New York City, Long island and the lower Hudson Valley.
