Tips and Takeaways

Service providers should submit the application for their client early. This will allow for a faster processing time, and give us the flexibility to circle back if anything in the application is unclear. Please be aware that due to the amount of time it takes to process each application, there is no extension on application time for incomplete or ineligible applications.

Update the resume before sending it! This will give the most accurate overview of an applicant’s skills.

Service providers should fill out the application with the applicant. This gives the applicant a more realistic job search experience, and also allows for them to fill out the short and long answer portion in their own words. Because onsite support from a job coach is a program requirement, applications filled out without the support of a service provider are ineligible.

Service providers need to attend mandatory work site previews with the applicant. To provide a realistic job application process, parent(s)/guardian(s) are not allowed to attend the work site previews. Since the group may be quite large, please schedule your visit early so that everyone is able to tour at a time that's convenient. 

Come to the work site preview and interview with questions. Asking questions in person is a great way to learn more about the program, to connect with internship supervisors, and decide if this program is a good fit. 

Schedule a call! Are you uncertain if the EEI internship is a step in the right direction? We’re always happy to discuss the program in more depth. Simply email ecthiell@kennedy-center.org to schedule a phone call.
