Carmel, NY – Putnam County Government will once again offer high school, college and graduate school students the opportunity to apply for paid and unpaid summer internship opportunities throughout its many departments as part of the Putnam Invests in Leaders of Tomorrow (PILOT) Program.  The concept of the PILOT Program was introduced by County Executive MaryEllen Odell in 2013 and continues to be supported by the Putnam County Legislature.

“The PILOT Program is one of the best professional resources offered to Putnam County Youth,” says MaryEllen Odell, “It is a program that I take tremendous pride in and I recommend students to apply, not only to gain real-world experience, but to learn more about the county in which they live.”

Eligible participants must be Putnam County residents who are graduate, college, or high school students in their junior or senior year.  Applicants must be at least 16 years of age. For college students a GPA of 3.0 or higher is recommended.

PILOT Program 2015 Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 25, 2014

Paul Eldridge, Personnel Officer

 

Putnam County Announces the Launch of the 2015 PILOT Program Student Internship Program

Carmel NY – Putnam County  will once again offer high school, college and graduate school students the opportunity to apply for paid and unpaid summer internship opportunities in County Government as part of the Putnam Invests in Leaders of Tomorrow (PILOT) Program.

County Executive MaryEllen Odell first introduced the concept of PILOT back in 2013.  “We look to our high school and college students as the future in Putnam County,” Odell said.   The PILOT program not only gives students the opportunity to see how their County government works, it also provides a cost effective boost to the workforce while building a possible succession plan.”

Since its inception, interest in the PILOT Program and the number of student applicants has grown dramatically. This is not surprising to Office of Senior Resources intern, Jacquii Unger,  who said, “If I could, I would repeat this internship every summer.  I truly had such a wonderful experience.  I was exposed to real life situations and was able to help solve some of those issues.  This certainly set the bar for future internships.”

Eligible participants must be Putnam County residents who are graduate, college, or high school students in their junior or senior year.  Applicants must be at least 16 years of age. For College students a GPA of 3.0 or higher is recommended.

The 2015 Summer PILOT program will be held May 26 through August 14, 2015, depending on student availability.  Internship hours, are typically 28 hours a week, and will be coordinated with Department supervisors.

 

Online filing instructions are now posted on the Putnam County Personnel website at www.putnamcountyny.com/personnel.  The application consideration deadline for students is

Friday, January 16, 2015.  Initial candidate interviews will begin in December.
