The Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce is proud to facilitate short- and long-term internships with a variety of its members.
Available at the high school and higher education levels, collectively the goal is to inspire local youth to the rewards of skills and work ethic development that motivate them to stay and pursue careers in our wonderful community.
Initially proposed as a holiday-break internship (one needing fulfillment immediately) we encourage all Chamber members to submit internships, apprenticeships, and job-shadowing throughout the year.
