Oregon Students

With the job market as competitive as it is today, getting a job or while you’re internship in Oregon
still in college will help you tremendously during your career search after you graduate. Today’s college students face one of the most challenging job markets we’ve experienced in a long time. Entry level positions that used to go to recent college graduates are now sought after by job seekers who have been in the job force for several years.

What does this mean for you? A college degree alone is not enough. In order to successfully compete in the job market you need work experience in addition to your degree. However, the type of experience you acquire makes a huge difference. An internship in Oregon that has you sorting mail or highlighting phone bills will not provide you with the practical skills required to land a job after graduation. Only a position that offers intensive job functions will enable you to compete in the job market successfully. Here’s what you should look for in an internship position:

The job functions – are they demanding and skill transfer based?

What’s the industry recognition of the company – have they helped other college students with a future career?

What is the track record of the intern’s trainer and supervisor – will you gain knowledge from them?

Will it be a good cultural fit for you?

The College Works Painting internship is an intensive, challenging internship which you will benefit from tremendously. As a College Works Painting intern you will learn every aspect of running a business. You will interview, hire, and manage a crew of house painters; interact with clients and all levels of internal staff (from the CEOs to the payroll representatives at our corporate headquarters); market, sell, and book work to last throughout the summer; and manage the profitability of your business. These job functions will teach you leadership, management, responsibility, and business skills – all of which will apply to any job position in any industry.
