STUDENT INTERNSHIP PROGRAM- ADDRESSING UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEMS THAT RECENT GRADS HAVE
Release Date: May 29, 2014

GREENBURGH STUDENT INTERN INITIATIVE---

ADDRESSING UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEMS THAT RECENT COLLEGE GRADUATES HAVE

MEETING FOR AREA STUDENTS AND GRADUATES WITH UNEMPLOYMENT HORROR STORIES SET FOR GREENBURGH TOWN HALL JUNE 10TH 7:30 pm

 

Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner and Town Clerk Judith Beville are overseeing a new student internship initiative ---highlighting a problem that recent college graduates have: finding work.

 

Elizabeth Skovron, a resident of Tarrytown and an honors student at the University at Albany, SUNY said that many of her friends and peers (including recent Ivy League graduates) are scared – they can’t find employment.

“We aren’t be given a chance to use our knowledge and brainpower. Many of my friends dread graduating college. We go from being independent to dependent on our parents.  It’s not fair for our parents who never expected that they have to support us after spending as much as a quarter million dollars on our college degrees. “

 

Instead of sitting home and complaining and waiting to get responses from job prospects, Elizabeth will be heading up a summer internship initiative.  A meeting will be held on Tuesday evening June 10th at Greenburgh Town Hall at 177 Hillside Ave, White Plains. Current college students and graduates will meet to discuss action steps they could take to enhance their futures. Among the initiatives that will be explored: Providing students with ideas as to how they could start their own businesses.   During the summer we will meet with people who have had success stories starting their own businesses.

 

Elizabeth will be working at Greenburgh Town Hall during the summer months. If you know of any college student or graduate who might be interested in participating in this initiative or sharing their UNEMPLOYMENT HORROR STORIES please e mail

 

eskovron@albany.edu.   Please encourage those with horror stories to attend the meeting on Tuesday, June 10th at 7:30 PM (Greenburgh Town Hall).
