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.

County Executive Odell to Welcome P.I.L.O.T. Interns
County Executive MaryEllen Odell will welcome approximately 30 interns who will work in various Putnam government departments during the summer as part of the Putnam Invests in Leaders of Tomorrow (PILOT) program. The interns, students in high school and college, will gather at the Training & Operations Center on the Donald B. Smith Campus on Old Route 6 in Carmel at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 6.
The PILOT program is available to Putnam County residents only. County employee family members were not eligible for the internships.
“This program was designed to assist the taxpayers, the families with students who need some assistance in employment and career opportunities,” said Odell.
Odell first introduced the idea of PILOT during her March 2013 State of the County address. She hopes by providing both paid and unpaid internships for these young people, they may be encouraged to return to their hometowns and become a vital part of the County employee roster.
“We look to our high school and college students as the future in Putnam County,” Odell said. “These temporary jobs give these students the opportunity to see how their County government works. Who knows? It may also lead to full time positions for our soon-to-be young professionals.”
Whether or not any of these young men and women applies for a County job at a later date, they will still have the opportunity during their eight weeks to test their talents in their assigned temporary jobs and earn impressive work credentials to present on future resumes.
The two-month internship will also allow the County to pre-screen for the best candidates for future positions within the government sector.
“PILOT provides a temporary and cost effective boost to the workforce within County government while building a possible succession plan,” said Odell.
