Believe it or not, summer is the time where many students are preparing for graduation. How can a student who is on summer vacation prepare for graduation?
It’s simple: Internships! Internships are the best way for students to get real world experience that will prepare them for a career in their major.
So how does NASPO fit in the picture?
NASPO partners with 8 academic institutions and their Supply Chain Management Programs to bring the value of public procurement to college students. With each partnership, NASPO supports an internship program where states can apply for funding to host a student either in their office or virtually for the summer. Selected states interview, hire, and manage their summer intern with the support of NASPO. NASPO’s internship program strengthens the relationship with our academic partners and leads us closer to our goal of promoting public procurement as a profession.
