The Council works in conjunction with area high schools and post-secondary education institutions to connect students and local companies for internship opportunities. MAEC also works with companies who do not currently offer internships but are interested in developing a program.
Business professionals speak to high school students about career opportunities in the area as well as the duties and responsibilities of many positions within their organization. The Council also coordinates and participates in mock interviews at local high schools and post-secondary institutions. This simulated interview experience gives students the knowledge to succeed in a real job interview.
