Summer Internships to Help Build Talent Pipeline

Following extensive outreach, the AOBA Educational Foundation had the POSITIVE challenge this Spring of screening more than 90 candidates for AEF’s 2019 Paid Summer Internship program!  The internships will help individuals launch careers in building engineering, operations and maintenance.

Area real estate firms sponsoring interns interviewed pre-qualified residents who have some on-the-job training (including customer service), took related educational courses, or completed an employment services program that offered exposure to building trades. On May 7th, intern candidates will be “matched” with sponsor companies.

Looking for staff for your engineering/maintenance/ operations team?  The Foundation has access to more job seekers than available internship positions. For referral details, please contact AEF Workforce Development Manager Shara Kurcz at
