Goldbelt recognizes that hand’s on experience in a professional setting is a valuable stepping stone to an individual’s career development and personal growth, and strongly encourages our shareholders to take advantage of these opportunities. The Goldbelt Career Development Program provides current shareholders and descendants with meaningful work experience and an opportunity to explore career options while serving as an additional resource to encourage and promote shareholder hire.
Goldbelt’s Career Development program is designed to provide participants with jobsite experience. These experiences will provide firsthand knowledge of Goldbelt’s business activities throughout various industries. There are three elements to the program and they include:
College Internships—for currently enrolled students and/or recent graduates
Vocational Internships—Offered in partnership with local Juneau-based agencies for students completing a vocational office skills program
Mid-Career Exploration Internships—For those with professional work experience who are seeking to explore employment in government contracting (Lower 48 only)
All Career Development experiences are paid temporary positions that last 12-14+ weeks. Lower 48 experiences include a housing stipend and travel. Students continuing their education are eligible for an additional scholarship of up to $500 at the completion of their internship. Goldbelt shareholders and descendants are encouraged to apply. Applicant must be currently enrolled in a college, university or vocational program and have completed at least one semester or two quarters and earned a minimum of 12 credit hours in order to be eligible. Recent graduates who are within six months of graduation are also eligible to apply. Applicants should be available for at least 12 weeks during the summer for their internship.
