Veritex Community Bank’s “Future Women In Business” Summer Internship Program, now beginning our 12th summer, is a community outreach program that is an extension of our Lakewood-area Women In Business (LWIB), Park Cities/North Dallas Women In Business (PC/ND WIB) and Plano WIB programs for female business owners and executives. The Summer Internship Program partners young women from these respective areas who are entering their sophomore, junior or senior year in colleges across the U.S. with female business owners and executives that are active members in our communities or of one of these WIB organizations.
As a selected intern in this program, young women will have the opportunity to spend the summer in a paid internship (usually paid hourly), where she will:
*Learn industry-specific skills pertaining to her internship position
*Experience the art of multi-tasking and balancing career, family, philanthropy, etc.
*Be mentored by a seasoned female business owner/executive
Here is how the program works:
*Interns submit their resumes to Darlene Ellison DEADLINE IS MARCH 12th
*WIB mentors from community submit internship opportunities/job descriptions DEADLINE IS MARCH 9th
*Program Coordinator (Darlene Ellison, SVP, Veritex Bank) compiles the information and provides interns with a listing of ALL internship opportunities (by March 16th)
*Interns select all the potential placements where they would like their resume submitted
*All WIB mentors providing internships will contact the interns directly to schedule interview (most will be via phone, Skype or Face Time since most students are attending college out of the area (late March)
*Interns selected by April 13th and notified
*A “Kick Off” reception for interns, their parents and their WIB sponsor will be held in June 2018
